Greetings from Newbee's in NV
Hi all and Happy Easter!
A little about us. We're happily married of 25 years. I retired from the US Army in 1996. We both work and have a wonderful son who's a senior in college at our local university.
We're pretty new the RV'ing thing and enjoy the information exchanges on the forums. We're not full timers, we just love camping and we got tired of camping in a tent. We also tailgate a lot at our local university for football. A lot of folks upgrade a little at a time, maybe from a tent to a pop up, from that to a small travel trailer, then to a 5th wheel, toy hauler or coach. We went straight from tent to coach and love it. We live in Reno, Nevada, just a hop and a skip from beautiful Lake Tahoe. Locals here fondly refer to it as "The Lake". When you say "The Lake" in conversation, no one asks which lake. It's understood.
Our motorhome is a very nice, 2005 National RV, Dolphin 5320, gasser with the 8.1 Chevy on a workhorse chassis. It had around 16k miles on it when we got it, with no issues at all. We've been having a really good time equipping it with everything needed and members from another forum have been helpful with that. We do a lot of Friday nights in it, just sitting next to the house and we've done one trip to San Francisco to attend the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl football game. Upgrading the electronics is a continual project, but we're getting there, and it's sure fun. Most recent upgrade was a 32" flat tv for the basement and outside viewing. It isn't there permanently, but it's light and easy to set up quickly.
Looking forward to meeting nice folks here.
