Almost There!

Howdy guys,
My names Don Baker and Iím a dreamer. Iím 57 years old and have been retired from the USAF since 2001. In the last year or so Iíve decided to sell, give away, or discard most of my worldly possessions and hit the road. My plan is to full time after I get down to Athens TX and take every class available at the NRVTA. National RV Training Academy. I will leave there as a certified RV inspector and certified RV Tech. After that I intend to hit the road, slow pace, moving every 3 or 4 months. I will be purchasing a newer Class C and Toad to drag. While in the AF I was lucky enough to be able to travel the globe. Iíve lived in 7 foreign countries and visited well over a hundred. 15 of the 20 years I was enlisted I spent in Europe. Well, now Iíd like to tour North America, take lots of photos and walk my dog in some of the prettiest parts of our country. Wish me luck. See you guys down the road.
D.R. Baker:cool

As a retired service manager and a camper since 1968,
I would suggest you do not buy a rv until you graduate. You will be so much more Knowledgeable about your purchase after school. Good luck and safe travels.
