Smile Hello To All From Ohio Newbies

Randal and Karen Boring here. Just bought (6 days ago) our first RV, a 1999 Monaco Diplomat. We have so much to learn, but, we are looking forward to the adventures of doing so. We live in Canal Winchester, Ohio with our 2 maltese puppies (Bubby & Sissy). We have 2 grown children and 5 grandchildren. We hope to retire in about 7 years, the good Lord willing and the creek don't rise, so, we thought we'd get a taste of the RV life now. Any and all words of wisdom for getting started will be appreciated!

Hello from another Buckeye. The best advice I can give is get out & enjoy your new-to-you coach.

Check out the North Central & Pond Piggie Forums for campouts. There's several of us going to be at Delaware SP this weekend. Pop over if ya can.
