My agency provides me with a lovely furnished apartment, but I've been an RV nut ever since I "helped" my grandfather convert an old school bus into a pretty slick camper back in the 70's. Full-timing in an RV has been a dream my entire adult life.

At this point, I'm able to make it a reality. I'm planning to get a Class A motorhome and tow my beloved little coupe around the country, from hospital to hospital, coast to coast. My fiance' holds down the fort at our home in MI, but we also talk about maybe throwing the pets in the RV and fulltiming together, me nursing, him workamping. Time will tell.

I look forward to learning from and participating in this forum. Thanks for being awesome!
Welcome /Mikey

Just a thought here Bruce. But how about a small trailer that you can set up the silversmith shop but big enough to put a small car in as well for running around and you can get back out there on the road more.

We like to make furniture so we are doing that with a woodshop in the trailer. DW is a crafty/sewing person and I'm setting up a place inside the coach for that. She is also an RN (30 years) and is considering some traveling work.

Thanks, Jay. That was my first suggestion to the wifey. Her concern is twofold, first what will the CG neighbors think when she is banging the heck out of her silver? And second, is there room at most CG's to park the moho, jeep, and trailer? What size trailer are you going to use? Got pics?

Then there is the "new" problem, she has been eyeballing a side-by-side ATV for all of our rockhounding adventures. Where does that go, and how do I drag it to wherever we need to take it once in camp?

We love our class-A gasser since it is only 33' in length but rides on 22.5 tires and of course love the allison tranny, but a 39' would accommodate more of her "stuff". But, that is a whole 'nother conversation.

Finally, we lucked into this small house on 5-acres on the side of a mountain, call it our "dream house". It is the smallest house we have owned in 35 years, but perfect for retirement. We will never be able to buy anywhere near this area again should we sell, this area is turning into a "poor millionaire's" club, and we certainly do not fit that criteria. However, we have started looking for fun, just W of here near the Montrose-Ridgway area, so who knows. I am OK with living here, and moho'ing during the winter months somewhere SW. And we love camping anywhere in the mountains all summer long. I guess I should feel lucky for having all of these "problems", eh?

As for your wife considering some travel RN work, my wifey gets job offers on-line weekly from places all over the country. She was just offered a 1-month gig at a hospital in California that she actually considered due to the crazy amount of green they are offering. I keep telling her we always find a way to spend it anyway, and then the tax man shows up and takes the rest. . . . .

Bruce
