Hello to all!

We are just another couple not quite there yet, (still need to sell the house and buy our "rig", and with a million questions. But we are getting more excited each day and hopefully by this fall we will be able to start our adventures.
We have both taken early retirement recently and plan to be full-timers, although staying on my sons property in Florida for about two months in the winter and at her daughters property here in Wisconsin in the summer months.
Although after the house sells we will be totally debt free, the rv we get will be paid for and we will have a little nest egg for back up, we will still be doing this on a VERY limited budget.
I know a lot of you will say we can't do it on $1,700 a month, but I really feel we can. We both love nature and the outdoors. We don't care for fancy foods or restaurants, maybe a burger off the dollar menu or a pizza once in awhile, but a good time for us is sitting around the campfire in a good conversation or playing a few songs on the guitar.
Since we will mainly be staying east of the Rockies I was thinking of joining Thousand Trails, Passport America, getting the senior national parks pass, Coachnet and maybe Escapees. I think that would cover us pretty well.
We got most of the information on these places from reading yours and many others threads and blogs so a big THANK YOU to all who participate on these sites! My only problem is once I get on here I can't seem to get out!!! Too much good information!
Anyway, just wanted to introduce ourselves and we look forward to talking with some of you. Thanks, Steve & Pam
