Talking Another Newbie

Hello All. It's hard to believe all the planning, hair pulling, hard work prepping the home to sell, is finally coming to fruition! In less than 3 weeks I'll have said goodbye to my home since 2008 and will be living full-time in a class A. I'll spend a couple of months at a local RV Park while I complete some medical/dental/vet appointments and do some remodeling of my 1998 36' Dolphin. Then it's time for my first looooong trip.

Although I'm not totally new to the lifestyle, I haven't used an RV for 15-20 years. I am new to full timing. I'm very glad to have found this site, both for potential info and help with my, new-to-me, Dolphin, as well as full-timing.

I plan on boondocking as much as I can. I'll probably winter in Quartzite, so I may see some of you there?
