new from Massachusetts

Is anybody out there from MA? Seems y'all are from just about every other part of the country. My wife and I just bought a new '08 Itasca Cambria 26'. Anything special we should know about this model?
I'm retired, but supported by my wife. So I have lots of time to travel while I wait for her to retire also. But we are doing a canada to north and south dakota in August.

I lived in Ma. for the first 18 years of my life, but it was an accident of birth. (North Brookfield)

My mother is still there along with a lot of Aunts and Uncles. My brother lives in East Brookfield. We are headed that way to spend a few weeks visiting.

Steve, to answer your question, "anybody from MA"; yes we we spent almost 35 years right down the road frpom you in Acton. When I retired there was no question where we were NOT going to live as we could not afford MA on afixed income. Having vacationed several time in TN we came down and bought a house and enjoy the land of lower cost of living. Our annual property taxes here is just about what we were paying per month in Taxachusetts. we have no income tax, nor any excise tax and registrations for our '09 auto is $24 per year and the same $24 applies to our '04 40 foot diesel pusher. FWIW, the last time I saw a snow blower was when I helped my son load mine into his pick-up. Can't help you on your new acquisitionas I have never had one. Good luck in your travels and welcome to IRV2, Ken Roberts...
