Hello from Ranger Bob, Ranger Eli, and Nurse Sue

Sue and I finally retired after 35 years each in the military and Dept of Army. Never had one toy in our lives and finally bought a new RV. We recently were adopted by a loving stray that has amazing physical abilities (translation is he climbs the walls and I cant get any sleep-ha). We named him Eli as a gift from the heavens and Ranger for his persistance and strength. Hence , Ranger Eli. We have never RV'd before but we are all about to get on the Road and meet the wonderful people in the RV world.
I have never been one to be intimidated but the thought of driving the RV really unnerves me. Sue, Eli, and I really enjoy reading the postings on IRV2 and have learned much. Best to you all. Bob
