New in Texas

Hi all,

Been lurking for a few days thought I might as well break the ice.
My wife and I just purchased a 2011 Open Range Rolling Thunder 320.
We are not new to RVing, nor are we new to forums.
We first owned a 35 foot Sportsman 5th wheel, then a Airstream bumper pull (which we still have) and this is our third camper the Open Range.

We are a young couple (mid & late 20's) and we love to RV and we love to ski.
After our last trip in our Airstream we decided we needed more room to be able to accommodate us, our ski gear, and our two dogs. So we went RV shopping again and we both fell in love with the Open Range Rolling Thunder which is their toyhauler model that will give us some haulin room.

Looking forward to sharing some stories of the road of you in the near future.
Guess that's about it for my introduction.
Few poorly taken photos of the new RV:

Yep, just a bad speller. My cousin is Patty and her husband is Randy. Patty's mom is Georgie who lives on 2626 and my Mom use to live next to Georgie till she lost her home in the fire back in 2000 (I think that was the year of the fire).

Yes I know them, I was one of the volunteers during the fire you are talking about. Not sure what year either but sounds about right. I hope I never have to go through nothing like that again.

OMG... the fabled started-during-high-school RV'ers!

That's how we're all gonna do it, in our next lives.

Bravo, and welcome from Granbury!
