Hi! from Hillsboro, OR

I'm Thomas. My Fiancee Laurel and I are preparing to full time in 5 years or less.
I'm 49 for a few more days and she is 54? or so...who cares!
I have 49 years of camping/travel with my family. Everything from tent trailers to fivers, from overnighters at a local river to Alaska.
Our Popup is currently on consignment and may be traded for this;
Motor Home & RV Dealer | Portland Oregon | Funtime RV
in a couple weeks.
I hope to help and learn too.

Paths may cross

Welcome aboard. Sounds like you have quite a bit of RV experience under your belt already but soon the big adventure of Full Timing will begin. We are still learning since we have only been RVing for 3 years but we are slowly making our way west so our paths may cross along the way. Enjoy your new adventures.

Welcome Thomas and Laurel. Good luck on the Forrest River that you're looking at. They sure don't make like they used to, and I say that in a good way. Enjoy your travels and post some pictures for us to see.

Thanks for all the welcomes!
I put a link in my sig line to my Webshots page. The boomin' stereo was in the Ranger that I traded in on the F150. We had planned on touring the country with the little truck and popup... until some extremely bad mosskeetoes and a little foul weather changed our minds in August. I bought the new truck just a couple weeks after we got home!
We are going to the dealer this weekend. Floyd said if we buy the TT we can leave it there without a storage fee until spring!
We are going to get out of our house (payments) and move into a little rental, pay everything off and then hit the road.
