Hello from Trenton FL

I recently sold my home of 59 years, I am 59, and bought a 1994 Winnebago Vectra. I had never driven anything larger than a standard pick-up truck. I drove 150 miles to buy this thing and drove it back home. I got rid of my stuff and packed my RV and drove 500 miles south to Florida. I have never been so scared in my life! I've landed in a place I would like to call home for awhile. Truth to tell, I'm too afraid to drive it anywhere else. I had a tow dolly and my car on the back. Driving through Atlanta was the scariest part of the trip. I would like to feel that I am firmly planted. I've obtained my FL driver license, voter registration, and registered my car and RV with the local courthouse. I'm here to stay. I am single, no children, no siblings, no parents, and I can pretty much go where I want. I say, "life's a beach!" Come spring, I will travel to the beach. For now, I'm at a natural spring off the Suwannee River.

Welcome and congratulations! Sounds like you are ready for some real adventures. (After a little rest.)
You made it through Atlanta... you are about ready for anything.

Welcome to Florida! Lots of beach to see! You won't get bored if you like water...you may get hot, but not bored. Don't forget all the springs that are here too.
Safe travels and awesome journeys.
Andi

Welcome to iRV2. Check out the RV Mutant thread. Lots of full-timers and people just wanting to get together and have fun. Read a few pages first to get the gist of what's going on. I think that we're up to page 2269.

Obviously, I'm new to all this. Just exactly what is a "toad"? I'm stumped.

That's a toad because it is "towed" behind you. And keep asking questions, that's what this site is all about. PS the search feature works pretty well too so that you can avoid posting a question that was asked last week.
