Talking Hi from Colonial Williamsburg!

Hi gang! The wife and I just bought our first RV, and we are stoked! We were offered a 1999 29' Winnebago Minnie. 44000 miles, V10 gasser, generator, etc. All the typical goodies. Dirt cheap. Minor damage to the sides of the cabover. Everything else great condition. New tires and awning. Year-old battery.

Hoping to fix it up before the cold sets in, and do some weekends in it locally to get the hang of it.

Seeya out there!

Go out and spend a few days at American Heritage or Anvil campgrounds in the local area to check out everything without going very far. If you have any problems, there is a local repair person that will come to the campground and is very nice and reasonable prices. A good way to check everything befor a long trip. Folks at both campgrounds are nice, and everyone is very helpful is you need to know anything.

thanks for the welcome guys! we were thinking of overnighting at the chick on rt 5. we like launching the boat and picnicking there, so rv-ing sounds good too. as for anvil, i like trains, but maybe not quite that much...

btw, was your greyhound in the xmas parade last year or two? my wife made the coats for them.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new rig! Sounds like you guys are excited and well you should be.

We full time now and spent a couple weeks at American Heritage this past spring and loved your beautiful part of the country.... although to be honest, I'm glad we'll be spending the cold months between Phoenix and San Diego.

Best of luck to you.

Welcome W4MBG,
From your call sign I see that you've been in amateur radio for quite a number of years. Love the area that you are from. If it gets to cold, just buzz on down here to Florida and warm up.

Travel well, travel safe,
