Getting Ready to Full-time

Hello from Minneapolis, MN. My wife and I are new retirees packing up and selling our home and getting set to hit the road in about 6 more weeks. It has been remarkable to find that every question we begin to research leads us down a series of rabbit holes! There is so much to learn and figure out.

I have not posted on the forum before, although quite a few of my Google questions have led me to answers here on this site.

Oh, and for our set-up we just purchased a 2017 Thor Windsport 31S and plan to dolly-tow our 2016 Chevy Cruze behind. Our first destination will be Utah, where we are looking forward to visiting our son and DIL, who work as rangers at Dinosaur National Monument. After that, the world is our dest8nation!

I am excited to be here and looking forward to learning and contributing in this forum as we move forward!
