Hi All,
As I retire next June (06) I haven't started RVing yet. I have camped off and on through out my life mostly in tents. Next April I will order a new 3500 dually Chevy and when it is all set up to tow I will shop for a good used 5th wheel 30' to 32' long, rear kitchen large shower/tub to fit into etc. that the truck can tow. Yes I know that is backward but I can only do what I can afford. I will be a full timer. I love to travel and have done the gotta get back to work bit too often. I am single and will rescue a lost soul (dog) from the shelter to keep me company and to take me for walks. I despirately need the exercise. I am drooling at the thought of going where and when I want and staying as long as I want.

Ralph

Ralph, glad to have you aboard. Just jump right in and ask of comment on anything.

We have two travel companions of the 4-legged varity. The youngest one, Belle is a rescue from the Tulsa Schnauzer Rescue center. We have her for almost 1.5 years now and she seems to be very appreciative of being rescued. Both of our dogs love to go on long walks and meet people.

Please be a responsible pet owner and keep your dog on a leash and pick up after him. This is always a big topic and concern caused by the few that do not pick up after their pets.

Ken
