Glimmer of Hope For Next Weekend!

One of Miranda’s current owners will be able to pick up the cheque in Laval in person on Tuesday and at the same time drop off the registration papers. Once they confirm the cheque is good, they’ll call me so I can get keys, which a neighbour will be holding for me. If everything continues to go as smoothly as it has, this will happen no later than Thursday so I should be able to take advantage of the one evening the SAAQ is open late and therefore get Miranda’s plates right away.

Pommette (the toad) is going in tonight to get her base plate installed tomorrow, so she’ll be nice and ready for when I go pick up Miranda.

Of course, picking up Miranda this way will mean that I won’t be getting a crash course in her systems. So, it looks like I’ll be learning the hard way. 😀

Status Update

Financing requested a proof of insurance in order to finalize the paperwork. Insurance required a date of possession in order to finalize their paperwork. So, financing gave me a date. Monday.

Monday?!

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP.

My car needs a base plate! And Miranda needs her back up camera! And the parking people haven’t gotten back to me! And… and… and… I don’t know anything about RVs!

*breathes in, breathes out*

Proverbial Stone

Whew, I didn’t intend to get insurance issues sorted out today, but I did! I’m thrilled with the coverage and price I got for a ‘Globe Trotter Plus Nomad’ (love that!) policy… that includes road side assistance for the RV. One less thing to research. *Rae heaves a huge sigh of relief*

I still need to check if my plans will affect my car policy (which I’ll need to maintain with my current insurer), so I could still be in for surprises, insurance-wise, but I think the worst is over.

The fact that I will be out of Quebec for a year was a huge problem and I had to swear up and down and promise my firstborn child that I would not go to the United States for more than a couple of weeks at a time, and for no more than 6 months total, as well as pay a premium. I can’t figure out why my country is so difficult about people crossing its provincial borders for more than 6 months. I know it has something to do with the health care regimes and provincial income tax, but all of that comes out in the wash if you ask me. *rolls eyes*

Okay, so now I’m waiting for the financing to be settled. This is stressing me out, probably more than it should. It’s just that plans B through Z aren’t nearly as advantageous as plan A and could really cramp my style.
