What a great forum! I've been lurking for a couple of weeks or so picking up new information like a sponge. For now, that's all I can do, but hopefully I'll be able to contribute in the future.

I've covered half of the world via motorcycle and I love to travel. Now, however; I'm in the process of moving out of my house and into my motorhome full-time. I had no idea just how long this would take. What do I take, what do I leave, what do I put in storage, or give away, etc. I thought I could move in in a week, but 4 weeks later I'm only halfway done.

I'm pulling a 7 x 14 enclosed trailer that is my rolling garage that holds my tools, bikes and stuff and that's working well.

At this moment in Portland, OR, we're below freezing and I thought keeping the rig warm would also keep my pipes from freezing, but that didn't turn out to be the case, so right now I have a Lean, Mean, Fat Grilling machine in the bay where the pipes are in an effort to keep the pipes thawed.

Anyway, living in the MH rocks and I can't wait to cut the umbilical cord from the house. Hopefully I will see some of y'all down the road some time. My first trip starts Saturday from PDX to Dallas. Hopefully it all goes reasonably well. Oh, and I pulled the ABS fuse ;-)

Thanks!
drrags aka Arno

drrags, welcome to our website and forums. We are glad to have you join us. One thing that I would highly recommend is that once you have loaded the motorhome and trailer, weight the rig. Be sure you are not overloaded and unsafe to be on the road. Good luck and keep us posted.

Welcome aboard Arno. Check in often and let us know how your travels are going.

Your immediate trip is going to be an adventure in staying thawed out. There is an artic front in place that stretches deep into Texas.

Welcome to the forum from another Oregonian. Yup, it's freezing in the central part of the state also. We're out of here on the 7th of Jan and on the way to Mesa for the rest of the winter.
