New from the Philippines

Hi yall!
About 12 years ago I retired from the Air Force and began working for a contractor. After a few years of that I retired completely and moved to the Philippines where I've been for over 8 years now. During that time my wife and I have made a few month long trips back to the US. My kids/grandkids live in Ohio so we fly to LA and rent an SUV or a pickup and drive across country round trip. Along our 'scenic' route we visit national parks and other sights along the way but I'm always struck with the same thought. "It's nice to visit for part of a day but really the way to do it would be in an RV and stay for a few days or a week or whatever."

Anyway, my wife has a tourist visa which gives her 6 months at a time but our life would be easier if she had a US passport which would mean she'd have to become a citizen and that would mean her living in the US for 3 years continuously. I don't really want to become a resident of any state so I figured maybe traveling around in an RV and really getting to see the country would be the way to go. She's in school now for the next 2 years so I have plenty of time to do some research.

So here I am starting to research this and looking for good information from some experienced RVers. I have lots of questions but will try to glean a lot of answers from your threads before asking so I don't bore you with the same questions you've already been asked over and over. There's probably a few threads on pros/cons of M/H vise towing so I'll start there.

God bless,
