2/13/15 Friday in Wildwood, FL (Three Flags RV Resort-TT/MA)
Friends from Spokane Washington are here! We actually met them at Findley State Park in Ohio (2013) and have kept in touch since then. They’ve been back home and now spending the winter near Wildwood, so they came over to see Miss Journey and renew our time together. We had such fun sharing our experiences then enjoyed lunch at Steak and Shake (their first time at one). Sadly, they had to get home to relieve their little dog.
Amazingly, our Arizona title (corrected) arrived via Fed Ex just as I was at the office asking if Fed Ex had come. He needed my signature, so that worked really well. The rest of the afternoon didn’t work quite as well. We took the title and purchase agreement to a UPS in “The Villages”. They kindly faxed those to our licensing agent in Spokane, so they could figure the fees we owed. Unfortunately that office was suddenly swamped with clients, so we waited for over an hour to hear from them. At that point they tried calculating the figure, but said it was over $10,000. I said that didn’t sound right. She noticed then that we’d paid the Arizona taxes. Then she said it would be best to put it through the normal batch procedure so suggested we sent the Application for Title/Registration and title without the fees. They’d call with the figure when they got it (they did call that evening), then we could send the money. Thus the first half was sent Friday, the last (money) was sent Saturday.
Whew!!! Now we’re hoping to get the tabs (we can use our old license plates) when we arrive at Chattahoochee, FL February 23rd. Our temporary Arizona license ends March 15th.
