New members saying howdy!

Glen and Marsha say hi!

We owned a 95 Bounder 34J for almost ten years. It was a year old when we bought it. Went for one 3 week road trip and quite a few 4 or 5 day trips but were plagued with electrical problems that just wouldn't go away, so we sold it in 2006 and decided we were done with RVing.

A year later I retired earlier than I thought I could and after a year and a half of sitting around here with the rain and cold winters we thought, HEY, why don't we get a motor home and go south for the winter. We bought our 2000 Adventurer about 2 months ago and have already been out for 3 adventures of 3 to 5 days.

We're doing our first boondocking trip in a few days (annual family reunion at Lake Entiat in eastern Washington near Wenatchee). Will be without hookups for about 8 or 9 days but there is a nice bathroom with shower and A/C at our son's property so we just won't use the coach if possible. We do have water available and a part time 20Amp electrical service that we will share with the other RVs. There will be about 60 or 70 people there and several of them have RVs.

Wish us luck. Hope all goes well with this boondocking thing.
