Long time listener first time caller..

I have been lurking for a while know and finally decided to join up. Seems like a great bunch of folks around here and very helpful too.

A little about me, I am from Iowa, I have a new to me last year 200 Newmar Kountry Star diesel pusher, Spartan chassis. Marries with 2 children and 1 granddaughter (should have had her first ). Still have a few more years to work but hope to full timer someday. The wife and I are finally getting to spend some time together thanks to the RV lifestyle.

Hope to listen to you storues and wisdom and maybe someday pass some along myself.

I am in the process of upgrading my TVs now to LCD units 1 down and one to go hope to finish this weekend.

All I can think of for now.

Hi from Tampa and a BIG WELCOME to iRV2.

We're originally out of Duluth, Minn. and started full timing back in 05. In fact, we bought our first rig from Stenzel's RV in Iowa (just Iowa side of border from Elmore, MN Sourth of Blue Earth). Also have daughter in Des Moines.

Glad to have ya along. You'll likely find this forum a good place for info and making friends. Hope to meet ya down the road sometime.

Again, WELCOME!!

tncruiser, Yes it is pretty old but I did opt for the wooden wheel instead of the stone one. Keeps the weight down and gets better mpg

One little typo and everyone is a comedian

Since it's that old with wood wheels did you also use whale blubber for fuel prior to the dinosaurs dying off and turning into diesel?
Had to do it

Yes when I can get it, the rest of the time I have our pet mammoth pull us around. Kind of like a early version of a wagon train.

Better than having to do the flint stone brake maneuver . Although I did notice your rig is newer than mine so I might need to borrow the mammoth.
