Wink New, from Ohio.

My husband and I recently purchased a 1973 Dodge Sportsman MotorHome which we are getting ready to restore. Our goal is to get rid of the B&S and be on the road early next spring and doing some work camping - starting south (AL, NC, or SC). We are in our early 50's and our youngest just left home......I look forward to learning and sharing our future experiences here as well as getting to know you all.

Welcome! We are in Ohio, as well. Been through the renovation/restoring thing. Now to sell the house (also known as the boat anchor). Once the house is sold, we will be full-timers.

Good luck on the restoration.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
