Let me introduce ourselves

Hello everyone..........heading to the west coast June 1 2016, from Tennessee 4 stops for sure. Evergreen Co to visit fellow retired pilot for a week. A month at Rancho Los Croches, El Cajon , Ca son. grandson, great grand son all in the area. A week in Paso Robles Ca. visiting another pilot/ flight attendant combination............this one has a winery so it should be a memorable visit...................or not
A month at Pheasent Ridge, Portland Or. where we get even with our daughter for all the years and visit my college room mate (Missouri)

We are Mike and Diana Raines, retired Airline Captain and international flight attendant,
We've been to many places all over the world and would love to share info on destinations and travel ideas.
Just bought a pristine 1999 American Eagle, and dinghy towing a Jeep Wrangler X ( our last rig was a 1995 Bounder 38')
Other than age restrictions at some parks we see no problems.
We are mraines1@aol.com

Welcome aboard. I'm sure you and your DW will enjoy the scenery from the ground after all those years looking down from 35,000 feet. Enjoy your trip and your new to you coach.

Sounds like a very busy schedule. As far as age restrictions on your coach. Very doubtful that you will have any problems, it's usually the run down coach that the age limit is aimed at. A well kept coach will usually be fine. Enjoy your trip and have safe travels.
