Hello Everyone

I've been dreaming of taking off in an RV and fulltiming for at least ten years. The stars finally aligned and last December I bought a 27Ft, '87 Pace Arrow. It shows its age but is in good shape. Everything works! I moved-in January 3rd and have been loving every minute since.

I'm still working full-time as a hydraulic tech in Oakland, California. I have the RV parked at the shop. The plan is to "hit the road" at the end of the summer. In the mean time I'm trying to educate myself a little on the RV lifestyle. I think I've found a great resource here in this forum. Thanks!
