New to iRV2, full time RV for 2 years

My wife, Donna and I, Kevin have always wanted to travel more. So when we suddenly found ourselves unemployed during Covid, we found a way to make it happen.
Sold everything, bought a Ram 2500 diesel truck and a Forest River Flagstaff Classic 8529RLS fifth wheel and have been traveling full time since.
Have visited East coast and all the way to the Keys, followed gulf over to Texas. Spent time volenteering at a Bible Camp, Fort Wilderness, in Northern WI for most of the last summer.
Just returned from going back to Texas (family there), spent alot of time in Arizona, boondocking in Joshua Tree, South of Sedona, Just outside of South side of Grand Canyon, then back to WI (more family), will be leaving for Northern WI soon to volenteer for the summer.
Have not finalized where we want to go this fall.
We have found we really like dispersed camping and just upgraded our solar to allow us more comfort while doing that.
I am constantly improving our truck and RV to work better for us and our desires. Enjoy meetingother full timers as we are traveling and sharing notes of where to go.

Welcome to the forum. Congrats on the new lifestyle. Covid also forced our hand into full time living and we are now over 2.5 years into the adventure and loving it.

You are joining a good group of friends here with good information to share. Read the various threads here and ask questions as they come up or add information if you can.

Good luck and enjoy the adventure!
