Post Howdy from Oregon !

Hello everyone..As you can see I am new here. I have been reading iRV form for years.

A little bit about Us.. My name is Preston and I retired from the Army in 1995 and went back to school for Respiratory Therapist. While in the Army I was in the cavalry for most of my career so the medical field was a strange world. Andy is a business owner for over 30 years...she has outstanding people running the business for her.. so we are off soon.

Last yearI bought a used Fleetwood PaceArrow, never even been in a motorhome before, and took off on a 5 month trip. We loved it ! We meet so many wonderful people and seen some amazing sites. We decided it's not where you go's who you meet along the way! You can see our travels at if you wish.

After being back for 2 months we decided to do this full time. So this week the house was rented and we gave away most of our stuff.

We will hang around the Portland Oregon area for a month or so since the weather has been great.

Any advice or best wishes would be nice and maybe see each other down the road and for happy hour.

Preston & Andy

Preston and Andy, Welcome to the forum and congrats on going full time. Also congrats on the Fleetwood Pace Arrow. Came close to buying one once and thought it was a great MH. Good luck and enjoy.

Howdy. I'm brand new to this, too, and from Portland, Oregon also. Just finished a 3,000 mile trip in my Class B and truly enjoyed it. I'm 72, and if my knees would hold out I'd still be backpacking but this is the next best thing to it.

Am retired from St. Vs, myself, and currently volunteer a couple of shifts a week at Hopewell House Hospice. Small world.

Will see you one of these days, probably not in Portland!
