new RVers, used MH

We retired in August, bought a used Winnebago Explorer and headed south in December. We're enjoying the lifestyle, simplicity, the weather and people we're meeting. We are near New Braunfels, TX. We're not adept at repairs, but, are learning. Maybe this forum will be our life-saver.

Miles.J;


Congratulations on your retirement and the purchase of your Explorer. I believe you have found the friendliest site on the Internet. Don't be afraid to ask questions as we have a great group here who like to help when they can. If you would like to be identified as a Winnebago Owner just go to the top thread in the Winnebago Industries Owners Forum and request it and someone will help you with that. Post often and share your RV adventures with us.

Don

Welcome to the forum and congrats on retirement, your new rig, and your new lifestyle. It'll take a few more month to truely slow down but there's nothing like retirement.

Welcome to the neighborhood. We're just west in Spring Branch, TX. Check out the Texas Boomers forum on this site and maybe join us for a rally.

Welcome Allen and Judi,
Keep the coffee pot on. We'll probably be out that way before the summer's over. Sons live in San Antonio and I know mama is going to have to visit.

Hi Miles & WELCOME!!!

This forum has saved me a ton of money but learning to do it myself and trouble shooting! I think, if you added up all the years of experience, on this site, you'd have a few hundred years (LOL!).

Seriously though, never hesitate to ask a question and there is NEVER a silly question. Trust me, I know!

Sheila

oooo, summertime here is HOT!! We'll be north. We'll be back in the late fall, though. We're loving being able to move where the weather suits our clothes!

Thanks, Sheila for the welcome and to see that you are doing this with the help of 6 Poms! My husband is not quite as adventurous as I am and I'm hoping to take the rig alone or, really, with girlfriends some. You are an inspiration.
Judi
