Another Texas Person Here Saying Hi

Just joined the forum and wanted to say hi to everyone. I am retired and currently in the market for a used RV. I have been reading lots about all the different makes and models. Whew! there is a lot of info to comprehend. Will be buying after the new year and will be full timing.
Can't wait to meet up with members here and share some good campfire stories.

Happy trails

Hi Folks.......Texnet is probably right about a few old grouches, grinches or what ever. But some of us in the twilight years won't remember anyway. Welcome aboard, and Happy Holidays to you both.

thanks everyone

Thanks to all for the warm welcome. And yes scotty, this will be my first RV. I can hardly wait. My father had a 1970 something Winnebago back in the day when I was a kid. I remember traveling from new Orleans to Texas on some hunting trips in that thing. it was loads of fun and I always said I would one day have my own when I retire.
