Where Have We Been?

We've been RVing for years.

Started towing a pop-up with our Jeep after years of tent camping, wore out that first pop-up so got another, wore it out and tried a pop-up truck camper pulling the Jeep. Worked great until early age retirement, so we sold the house and everything in it, traded the truck and camper for a 36' class A DP, and went full time for 5 years.

During that time we volunteered for the US Forest Service as camp hosts at Yankee Boy Basin near Ouray Colorado, wilderness area boundary monitoring for the BLM at Needles California, work-camped a couple summers at a fishing resort in the Mammoth Lakes basin of California, and traveled from the Mexico border to Alaska.

We're boondockers primarily. When we had the class A we were set up with solar and big tanks, and could stay out a maximum 17 days without dumping or refilling (the two of us plus a Golden Retriever and 2 cats). We followed the seasons always spending our time west of the Mississippi.

Somewhere along our travels, while visiting a family friend that is also an RV dealer, I asked what the #1 question is that new RVers have? The answer amazed me!

"Now that we own it, where can we take it?", and that brings me to how we got to the iRV2 Forum...

We started a hobby website to catalog the various state and federal agencies that administer public lands over 10 years ago. It's a totally free RV camping information website with information for all 50 states.

Recently with the advent of mobile devices, we redesigned our site to be "mobile friendly", and part of the new system we use lets us know when our website had been referred to by another site. Well the iRV2 Forum showed up several times immediately after we cut over, and I'd never heard of it?

What a nice forum you have here, and now that we're here, we hope to contribute any useful way possible!

Happy Trails!
