Hi Folks:
I just retired after 40 years with DoD. Bought a used 36 foot Cross Country Elite diesel and my wife and I are looking forward to seeing the USA.

What I hope to get out of this forum are maintenance tips, destination ideas and perhaps sharing like interests with other members. I enjoy building hot rods, ocean fishing and diving.

Best Regards,

Hi 60Vette, welcome to IRV2. You have come to the right place for all your needs. The folks here have a wealth of knowledge and are very friendly and willing to help. You will find several groups to join and camp with others. Nor'easters are active in your area and I think they have something going on in June. Congratulations on retirement and safe travels.

Sheesh! I didn't expect such a warm welcome. Thank you, folks. I haven't even brought the RV home yet from the Cape. Barb and I will head down Wednesday of next week to drive it home. I cannot adequately describe the excitement.

I drove my Dad and his 1986 Winnebago Chieftain 27 down to FL more times than I can remember. I am familiar with bad handling Class A motorhomes however this pusher is a delight to drive. Being a 2002 RV it's probably a good thing I'm a mechanic by training. Well, an airplane mechanic but it should be a benefit.

I need to find out more about these wild nor,easter folks. I'm am ready to go.

Best Regards,

Ralph and Barb
