More than you want to know.

We're new to RV travel and have recently bought our first rig. She's a 26' 1991 Ford Tioga Class C with 59,000 odometer miles that we have dubbed "Classy". During the month we have had her, we have (with a lot of help from friends and family) deep cleaned, gone over all the systems, repaired/replaced everything that didn't work, updated all the maintenance and done some much needed remodeling. Now, I believe she's solid and ready to go.

I retired after selling my screenprinting/graphics business in 2011. My former occupations include: computer programmer, OTR truck driver and semi-pro musician. My current hobbies are: RVing (of course), rescue dog transporting and metal detecting.

My wife retired after selling her floral business in 2010. Her former occupations include: graphic artist (for me), medical neuro technologist and florist (for another flower shop). Her current hobbies are: arts and crafts, dog grooming and traveling/sightseeing.

We have 1 son and daughter-in-law, 1 grand-daughter and our 2 female Shih Tzu furkids (aka "The Girls").

Being new, I will no doubt have a lot of questions. But I hope that in a very short time I will have more answers than questions.
