Thanks Ron & Wendy. Hope Karen and I can have as much fun in the latter as my family did in the former.

I was born in Kansas. Good folks down that way.

January 2012, I bought this 1971 Winnebago. My Rat Terrier, cat, and myself have been having a blast full-timing it.

Neato; livin' the dream. If that Winny could talk I bet it would have some stories.... The campsite looks like Wisconsin.

A real CLASSIC, I remember this is as one of first Class A RVs I saw as a teen.

Life is always an adventure in a classic.

An original owners manual, now that is neat.

Enjoy!

You guys crack me up. Looks like Wisconsin!!!!!!!!

Looks like just any ol woods to me. I've been in Oklahoma and Arkansa campgounds that look exactly like that. Heck, I know of a campground near Possum Kingdom Lake Texas could pass for the same place.
But there is no mistaking Glacier National Park Campgrounds if it were there. God, I love that place! But too many Tourist.

Good for you, on the purchase of the Old girl. She looks well taken care of!
So themsuangle, are you Snowbirding, or Work Camping in it?
Chillin, or just hunkering down in the Cold North Winters?

I'm still waiting for DW to retire so we can start kayacking all the good rivers in the US. But she wants to work.........
I've been threatening to go to work on the Crazy Horse Monument for a few years while she finishes out her Career. I love rock climbing too! Plus they promised me I could use dynamite!!!!!

Thanks for the support. I'm staying in the general area for work and I've working on getting it ready for winter. Last January, I just used massive amounts of duct tape and plastic sheeting to keep me warm. I'm also working on fixing the wood paneling and getting rid of the hideous carpet on the wall in the dinette area. Gotta love the 70's though.

Might want to think about a wrap around skirt for the under carriage to keep the snow from freezing the pipes. Would take much to create a wind break under it.

Me, I'm going to stay in the warmer climates. We'll just follow the sun.
I just got my diesel motorcycle running good, but didn't bother with a heater in the fuel tank.
Now if I can convert my generator to diesel I'll have all of my equipment on one fuel and will be able to run them all on used fryer grease and used motor oils.

That's pretty awesome. Ideas for me are to install solar panels and have everything run on electric. Put in LED lighting. Take out the propane system. I guess there's no way of making the engine electric. It'll be cool to run on the sun. My first goal is to make everything sound before buying pretty stuff for it.

I'll see if a wind break is allowed. Might be a good idea to keep the under carriage from the elements.
