Day Twelve - This morning was a sleep in day as we only needed to head into town by midday to collect a Budget hire car to get around for a few days so we could just leave the RV hooked up in the campground, much simpler that way than moving a 38ft Bus around the centre of a large city and university.
We had Shannon's offer to come out and collect us to head back in to the airport which was the only place available to collect a hire car in the weekend, but with the distance they had to travel to get us I decided to make another plan of attack.
What we chose to do was head into the airport in the RV to collect the car, take the RV back out to the campground and do a re-hookup and then head into town to help Bec with settling into her new apartment. Worked beautifully but meant we didn't get there till after 2:00pm, not to worry, got the shopping done and then met Shannon's parents at the apartment as well. They had come up from Pittsburgh to help the girls get settled and were a lovely couple that bend over backwards for the girls.
Off to Target, a little bit different to the Targets we have in Australia, these stores are massive and carry a lot more variety. Collected all the things she needed for the apartment and then proceeded to head back there and assemble the bedroom items she chose to add to her room. Most main furniture items are provided on campus but some additional storage never goes astray.
The car we got by the way was a Dodge Challenger, a mid size car but very nice to drive and quite a sporty looking thing, handles well too.
Our day was pretty well taken up with helping Bec get settled and also to take a bit of a look around to see what sort of vehicle we may be able to pick up for her later on as a car really is a bit of a necessity due to most of the shops and resources being out of the centre areas now and out in the suburbs.
By the time we got all that done it was pushing 9:00pm and I was ready for the sack, said our farewells and headed back out to the campsite. Into bed and tomorrow is another day.
