SO new we squeak.

Hello there! We are so new to this we haven't even picked up our motorhome yet! We bought our 2007 Four Winds Hurricane in California when we there visiting family in LA over the holidays. Big and kind of crazy step in the right direction being as we live in Alaska!
So the plan is to fly back to Ca in May (as soon as Garry recovers from shoulder surgery and the roads are clear) and drive our rig up to Fairbanks, spend the summer getting rid of stuff and storing the rest, rent out the house and head south before the snow flies again. Yep, we jumped into the deep end didn't we?
I am sure that once we get the hang of this site you will be seeing a lot of us.
Garry is a retired mechanic with the Operating Engineers Local 302 and Kathee is a retired business owner. We are looking forward to this awesome part of our lives and are thrilled to have found this site as we have a lot to learn about being RVers.

Welcome and glad to meet you!

We also jumped in feet first and are having a ball. Our coach is our first RV and boy was it a great purchase. Good luck with yours and have fun!

From this point on any squeak you hear will be coming from the coach.
Good luck!
