Hi There!

We're glad to finally be here--we've heard such great things about this forum! I (Dawn) was getting an oil change in my car yesterday & a couple with a cute little dog sat down. We started talking--turns out they just traded in their motorhome & bought an RPod. They were headed to an RPod rally at Point Defiance State Park this weekend.

Anyway, he asked me if I had RVapps. Yes, I had all he mentioned & then some. "Are you on iRV2" he asked. I had to say no. So now if we're asked that question, we can say "Yup. We sure are!"

We've gone from being backpackers to tent campers to a pop-up (whew--finally off the ground) to 1993 Layton with a corner bed & held together with caulk (corner bed but in-house bathroom). We bought our Nash 24M (walk-around queen bed & a sofa for the dog!) in February 2014 knowing that Jim was retired & I would be retiring soon & we wanted to be any-timers & get out of the Northwet (not a typo) during the dark & dreary winters. Our dream is literally 53 days away from becoming reality!
