Long time Reader... Finally ready to comment!

Greetings from Idaho!
I am TR, an avid fisherman and IT consultant. I live 20 minutes from Silver Creek, one of the best fishing holes in the whole world, near Sun Valley Idaho. Get up this way and ping me we will go wet a line if I am home. I've been RV'ing since I was 10, when my parents got their first 16' camper. We upgraded from tent camping in a VW bug... Anyway, this past spring I got my 40' Dutchstar DP and spent the summer touring around the country going to music festivals and just generally exploring some states I had pretty much only flown over. Spent way too much time in Ohio (no offence to anyone that lives in or loves Ohio) I felt trapped in a whirlpool, I would get out for a week but then have go back for two more!
As a consultant it really does not matter where I am as long as I have cell coverage I can work and as soon as my house sells I am going full-time.

I have really enjoyed this forum and read it for a couple of years, just finally have the time and mind to comment on a few things and share fun stories from the road.
Cheers for now!

Sounds great to be able to set your own hours and work anywhere you want.

My DH and I getting there - probably 60% virtual now, and foresee even more of our jobs being done via online/smart phone.

Good advice here and great people to get to know. Come to the rally in Iowa in Sept. And you will see what I mean. Happy travels and safe miles. Jim

Hi TR! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you decided to join us! Man, you joined just in time! We just sent out a posse with instructions to shoot all lurkers on sight! We were in Idaho earlier this year on a two-month trip out west. Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Welcome fellow Idahoan, a wealth of info on this site. There is world class fishing in your neck of the woods and it's pretty good a little further up north also on the Clearwater River.
