"Besides, he looks freaky and anatomically correct"
Never have I ever shopped for turtles so I had Lisa explain it to me. "First you have to prepare the truck. Once that is done you can shop for turtles." I must have had a dumb look on my face so she elaborated even more. "Take everything out of the back of the truck and lay down some plywood for a nest."
"Like this?" I said. "Are we getting a giant Land Tortoise after all? That would be cool."
"KEEP IT UP!" She yelled. "I'm going to slap you so hard you will have a scab on your lip so big, it will take two hands to pull off! Shut up about the tortoise! We are getting a turtle!"
"Okay, okay" I said. "Sheesh."
We both got on the World Wide Web and searched with our engines high and low to find the perfect turtle. Most where too far away to visit but we did find some down near the cities. So road tipping we went. First stop Ham Lake Minnesota. They had a nice turtle and they where a turtle dealer. Then we stopped in Albertville Minnesota and looked at a couple of others. We went home and slept on it and the next morning we committed to the turtle in Ham Lake.

We are pretty excited about traveling like this. In fact we are going to try it out in Colorado for a month or two to get used to it and to see what else we need for it. A journey of discovery I call it. Then we will get our fifthwheel out of storage and put that in storage and head south to Texas for awhile. Until we are needed in Florida.
So it has been a busy time for us but we are looking forward to the next adventure.
