Aspiring RVers from the Northwoods (MN)

We are presently in the process of purchasing a 2001 Newmar Dutch Star (our first attempt at participating in the wonderous RV world) and will be looking for all sorts of input; i.e. where to go, exciting areas in the US for RVers, precautions etc.

Our handle, "billythedog" is in tribute to our faithful travel, hiking, leisure time friend Billy, a rescued dog who joined us 5+ years ago.

As newbies we look forward to all sorts of thoughts and ideas.

Thanks and have a great day!

Karen and Ron

Hello from a fellow rver from Minn. Welcome and sounds like a nice coach. We are new to this site also. Hinkley has a great RV Park if you are interested. They have a few sites that they keep open all year long. I am sure tempted to take off and see if I like winter camping. They are predicting 45 this weekend.
Again welcome, Tim

I'll put in a shameless plug for British Columbia, great places to see starting from the Rockies on in. I have come to the conclusion that every place has something to offer. Enjoy your new hobby. Probably a good idea to stay closer to home the first couple of journey's as you learn about your new rig. I know that it took about 3 trips before I got most of the bugs worked out of my unit which is only a couple of years older.

Welcome, Karen and Ron!
This is a friendly site so pitch right into the conversation. Don't leave Billy out. There's a forum for rving with pets, also, as you may have already noticed.
Information (and opinion) abounds.
