Thank You and Goodbye


Reluctantly I had to move back to the Westside of WA. State due
to the down turn in my money and also had to sell my 02 Itasca MH.

Thru the VA I was able to buy a home (paid off when I'm 102)
55 and over, gated 7 yr. old community, and they do the yard work. Everybody there is getting old like me and it's very serene.

So I guess not everything went to heck, anyway not yet. The
house has a large garage for my mistress (84 Thunderbird)
and I'm only 20 min. away from my daughters.

The medical here for seniors sucks and I miss my MH. I also
will miss the friendly advice I've gotten over the years on
my MH. Many times when I see one like mine, tears almost
come to my eyes. My wife thinks I loved the Itasca and
Thunderbird more than her...well...

THANKS a million for everything and may God keep you and your RV safe.

PS: you might of heard me tell the story 5 yrs. ago when I was
draining the black water for the first time. The hose came off and most of it hit me in the face and chest. That was my first RV baptism.

for your service.

Fred sorry to hear of your situation. Thanks for your years of sharing to make this a great site. May God Bless you and I hope you make the last payment on that new S&B in person at 102!

PS...Just a ponder....Lurking and helping here might help to keep your spirits up.

Have a wonderful day!

Fred, Good Luck and don't stop comimg to this site. When I can't use my MH due to being busy or health issues, I always feel like I'm using it by reading/responding to the various threads. Thanks you for your service to our country, and God Bless.

You don't have to leave...stick around and pass on some of the things you learned RVing. I sold one of my very favorite possessions several years ago. A sailboat I'd had for years. I'm still on their forum and visit often.

One G,I to another...we never say goodbye we say until..... Good luck, much happiness and the best of health to you and yours. Perhaps you could stop by from time to time and be my mentor as me, the bride and our Bernese Mountain Dog are new to the RV thing and just getting ready to start out. I'm sure we will need a mentor of sorts! Enjoy life to the fullest and keep active on this site!
