Talking Hello from SW Virginia

My husband and I sold our condo in Charlotte NC 6 months ago and retired to our 80 acres in SW Virginia (we are in our 50's). We both had jobs that required a lot of travel. As he likes to say "Carey and I have seen every major city in the US, but nothing in between" - so, we bought a 29' 2013 Coachman Freedom Express and are getting ready to make our first trip in April to a SC State Park on the beach. I love the iRV2 site and all the great information. Thank you - to a GREAT community.

PS - Forgive me in advance for all the silly questions I'll ask in the future (like where do you fill up/dump when boondocking). Oh, and thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge.

Welcome aboard. Went to Grayson Highlands State park in Virginia after the Rally last year. It's a great park, had a great time hiking around and enjoying the scenery. Not much for cell service or internet hook-up but it was nice to get totally away from it all for a few days. Jim

Hey Jim - Tony and I were actually camping in Grayson Highlands when I picked up a real estate book - that lead to the purchase of our property outside Abingdon VA. Love that park. Thanks for the welcome... next time you are up this way give us a shout
