Hey Jerry - how goes.

As for the handicapped forum - we did not get a forum but we did get a "group" that will corral "related threads" in one place. It doesn't work with the iPhone app but otherwise it seems to be working ok. Not as good as a forum by a long shot but a start. There were lots of reasons given for not adding a forum but it seems to me the main reason is level of effort. It must not be that easy to do in addition to whatever other reasons given.

All
I have been putting off posting here as we are about a year +/- from retiring and going full time. I'm running out of numbers in the 50's and Annie is a couple numbers less.

Jerry - sorry we missed this weekend. Annie is doing better and I'm too stubborn to let a cold slow me down. We'll see ya time.
Steve and Annie

Well, MrJim is 48 and my lovely bride is 42. We have two kids(13 &11) and have two miniature Dachshunds. I retired 11 years ago and am raising the kids(I tinker every now and then with part time work), bride is Active Duty Air Force. We tented it before kids, then kids came and a PCS to Alaska we bought our first travel trailer. We are now awaiting delivery of our first coach, an ACE 30.1. We would rather drive than fly....The RV has always made a great home between moves(we pcs every 2 years). I want the wife to retire NOW, but she wants to go another 7 if she can hold out that long. Happy Travels!

So glad to have the RV!

Just finished a 3000 mile (round trip) trip to help family with all the details of a death in the family...

It was unexpected/short notice, so we had no cheap air reservations, no affordable lodging at the destination, nor any kennel reservations.

So with 1 day notice, we were on the road. It was wonderful having all our own stuff, the doggies were happy to come along, and family was very glad to have the help.

This would not have been possible without our RV

I'm not retired. I'm not old, either, at 62, although I'm certainly older than I was in 1995 when I first moved into a motorhome. I'm a solo, longtime traveling reset merchandiser, currently taking a break and camphosting.

I'm 54 and my wife is somewhere near that I own a metal fabrication business and my wife is a professional collector.

We started RV'ing because we had exhausted every good motorcycle road on the east and wanted to get out to ride the west. We're the type that will do 3,000 miles in a week. In 04 we racked up 20k miles together. I don't ride a Harley, I'm too young to putt around, I need speed.

We started out in a Class C toy hauler, moved up to an Outlaw and now have a Challenger and a trailer for the bike. We love to ride but since we've been doing the RV thing we've become pretty fond of the life style. I prefer cooking on camp fire to a gas grill.

We're in Jersey now but have already bought our retirement home in Tennessee overlooking the Smokey mountain national park. Eventually we'll head out of town and won't look back but that's a little ways off at the moment.

We try to take two vacations about a week long and almost every other weekend traveling to local hangouts just to wake up some place different. We travel about 10k miles a season in the RV and always do a day ride on the bike no matter where we end up.

Good to meet you all!

I am 37, wife is 35, son 3. We are on our 2nd motorhome and play "full timers" for 2 months every year. We travel across the country visit relatives and just have as much fun as possible. We have two giant mals which make it interesting. I've been RVing since I was a little kid, some great memories, and enjoy sharing the lifestyle with my son now.

I'm 31 DW is 30 and definatly a hell of a long way away from retiring, I work in Sales for UniFirst ( and other green bleeders?) and my wife works in sr health care, we started off in a Coleman pop up when we were 17 which we quickly got tired of the set up to a 22 ft TT tHen to a 8 ft truck camper , progressing to a 10 ft. Back to a trailer since the 2 kids are taking up way too much space and to our current 26 ft class c ( DW made me buy a boat and were not allowed to b-train in BC)
We go for 2 weeks in the summer and try to get out Atleast 6 weekends a year, between cheerleading competitions and dance recitals for our girls our season is pretty much filled

We are 56 and 50 (but don’t tell her I let you all know). We purchased our first MH 6 years ago to bring my mother home to Princeton, WV from our home in Chazy, NY (as far north and east as you can get in NY). My Mom is a colon cancer survivor, but due to the illness, bathroom needs are very unpredictable. She came from a large family, 7 brothers and a sister and was afraid she would never see them again because of not being able to travel normally. We purchased a 2nd hand MH and told my Mom that we were taking her home that summer. We told her the MH had a 60mph toilet and she would be fine traveling in it. The MH worked wonderfully. Seeing her face light up after not seeing her brothers for over 10 years we decided to bring her home every year as long as she could travel. This will be year six. In the meantime my wife and I found out we really enjoyed the MH camp experience. We are both still work and will be for many more years. We enjoy extended weekend camping and maybe a week here or there throughout the summer and fall. Our big trips this year are Gettysburg in August and on our annual WV trip, we will drop Mom off at her brother’s and go to Disney World for a week.
