Hello from Washington State

New to this site But not to the RV Lifestyle. Built an RV 1n 1975 in LA while working there. It was a 1942 Studebaker ex Army Radio Communications Van. I bought it at a surplus lot and used it to live/travel in as I was doing Contract Aircraft work at the time and traveled coast to coast for work. It had hardwood floors, cedar ceilings, a kitchen, bath, shower, living area, master bedroom upstairs and patio furniture on the deck, weather permitting. Had it for close to 20 years. I retired (the first time) in 2001, bought my present RV in 2003 and the wife and I went full timing. Came out of retirement in 2011 to do heavy structure rework for Boeing on the early 787's. Just retired again and about to go back full timing. While back to work I gave the Hi Rise some needed TLC.

Pretty impressive! Welcome back to the foot loose crowd. My DH worked at Boeing for 40 years. He's retired now.
Enjoy !

Welcome from another Boeing retiree. I bagged it at 58, fed up with all the foreign travel. I was 29 weeks out of the country in my last year, and no trips longer than 10 days. The trips were 90% to Islamic countries.

We moved from Everett to Anacortes a year after retirement and have burned off all the 600,000 frequent flier miles I'd accrued.
