Til we meet again

We are sadly leaving the Newmar family at least temporarily as health issues are interfering with our use of our beautiful Newmar. I have learned, shared and enjoyed this family for so long. We have been RVing for 36 years and I am sure will be hanging out here for a while longer. Thanks to all of you for helping make this forum and this lifestyle so
Rewarding and do much fun.

We'll all get to a point where health or just our age will prevent us from RVing. Hopefully, you can move into other means of travel like cruising, flying or just driving a car to a hotel.

Good luck.....

Best wishes to you guys. Your posts were always helpful, wise, and even keeled. I enjoyed your closing line to each - "in my humble opinion". Take care.

Thanks to all of you! It is humbling to have made so many friends on here. And rest assured you are not getting rid of me just because we had to divorce the coach. We are going t keep the dream alive that we will jump back in in a year after dealing with my heart and the wifeís cancer! So pray for us and God willing we will be back on the road.
