Talking 72 and 79 yrs young and just went full time

Well, DW finally gave in. We sold our home, our motorhome, tow car, and everything else..Bought a 2015 38RSB3 Mobil Suite, 250 Super Duty King Ranch, loaded up and headed for the Texas Hill Country. Funny thing tho half the folks I told said "you old fool, you are too old to do that"..but.. The other half said" Boy, I sure envy you, wish I could do that".

We are making Sky Line Ranch R.V. Park in Bandera our home base for now. I'll post some pictures when the rain stops. Not complaining cause we really needed it..the rain that is..

That's great go for it. I have 7 more years to do that. Those 38 mobile suites are top of the line coaches, just be careful with that 250. Those 38'ERS can go to 18k pretty easy fulltiming. That 250 may be a little underated for that 5ver. Happy trails.

If there is anything left for the kids to inherit it will be due to poor planning on my part.
