New to the forum! Just started fulltiming...

I am so happy to find you all, there is a lot of useful info and just plain good people.
My name is Miranda and I am 24 years old from North Carolina and travel with my boyfriend of 3 1/2 years, I am an ex-X-ray tech turned homemaker.

So we have always camped in our 24' Layton travel trailer at the lake and it worked well for what we used it for...
Then my bf started working on the road as an inspector on pipeline jobs so we decided to live in the camper and knew we would have to upgrade soon. Needless to say we did this with 2 lab mixes, one 8 and one 4 :-)

So... I left my job and we all hit the road, first stop for a few month (since March to current) was northern Louisiana about an hour east of Shreveport. I must say this part of town is uneventful and the people in our RV park are rude...

I have to say, for two people and two dogs in that Layton was awful!
But I am happy to say we just got a new 2011 Open Range Journeyer 36' (HEAVEN!)
The entire families attitude changed in an instant heehee... we are all very happy and comfy in our new home and will be going to southeast Texas in a few weeks, and that job will last a good while.

So there's s little about me, I am missing my house but this is an exciting journey for all of us.

(I have tried to put a picture of our RV up but it keeps giving errors, will try again in a few)

Welcome to the forum. Nice rig many happy and safe miles. Good luck in Texas. We love in Central Louisiana and I hate to hear about the rude people in the camp ground. Of course I suspect most of the people in the camp ground don't live in Louisiana. Just a guess.

Believe it or not, these people DO live here, its the women that are snobby... apparently that's the way these women, that have husbands in this line of work, are all like this... found out through future mother in law, my bfs father does the same thing (which we are all going to the same job in Texas) and she warned me to not let it bother me! Just caught me off guard when your from NC and you were raised to wave at strangers and say hello or hold the damn door open for someone, southern hospitality ! But no, the people in town are very different, caught me off guard when I'm at a store looking for something and a stranger comes up and starts talking to me about what I'm looking for lol

I had issues I use a tablet and ever time I uploaded a photo it would disappear and said it crashed and it was sending a report...so it lied :-)

OK so here are some interior pictures posted (I hope)

...and thank you all for the warm welcome :-)

(First set of pics more to come)

Thanks to all...

I have one question and I have been looking everywhere to where to put this in the forum :

I am new to cooking with a gas oven... anybody have ANY tips on maybe temperature or time adjustments than cooking with electric stove? I'm so happy to have one (crockpot dinners were growing old :-) )
I did buy some stoneware which does good but when it comes to cooking things on a basic cookie sheet...VERY disappointing...but I'm going all according to the package or recipe and nothing ever comes out crispy. I miss crispy food lol

Any input would be highly appreciated
