Hello from Tucson


My wife Claudia, Max our mini schnauzer, and I recently purchased a 2013 Tiffen Allegro RED QFA. Our goal is to break all local ties, seal up the house, and full time it for the next year or so to find our ultimate retirement destination. Tucson Summers have proven too hot and there are a very limited number of cultural opportunities that we so enjoy. Anyway, we will be exploring all coasts and interior POI's while we travel around the country stopping to visit family members that are scattered about at all points.

I have been actively lurking over at the Tiffen network forum learning al that I can so that we are adequately prepared, and recently came upon iRV2. I will likely lurk here as well searching on the various topics until I am stumped and need an answer, or am in a position to contribute with my own expertise. If there are other key on line resources that would be helful in getting me road ready, direction would be most appreciated. My next major pre-launch project will be to get the TOAD, which will be a 2013 Honda Accord, ready with tow plate, bar, and a braking system.

Glad to be hear and hoing to learn much and share where it is helpful.

Howdy from SC and welcome to the forums. Might I suggest my state? We are in the northwest corner on Lake Hartwell and summers aren't too hot here at all, plus winters are mostly mildish with occasional snow, but rarely does the snow last more than a day. If its the ocean you crave, we have some beautiful beaches here too!
