Red face New to the forum, New to RVing, and soon to be New Full-Timer!

Hello to all! has been an invaluable source of information to my husband and I over the past few years. We've been silent lurkers, though. This is our first post!

At first, it was a great source of inspiration to us as dreamers.
This was the stage in which we started considering the full-time RV lifestyle but ultimately thought it would be impossible or that it would be decades down the road.

The next stage was when we turned into planners.
After much research and consideration, we realized that full-time RVing would be a possibility for our near future!

Finally, the forum is becoming helpful to us as newbies.
We recently purchased our new home on wheels and are in the process of selling our sticks and bricks. We're also preparing for our transition into the Full-Time/Workamping/Seasonal lifestyle.

Therefore, I would like to officially thank everybody on this forum for the years of help you've offered.

At the moment, we are having a frustrating day with parking the trailer. You may say we're in a rut (pun intended ). The yard is too soggy and the snow is coming down too fast... It's discouraging at the moment.

However, we know it is a temporary situation and that we'll make it through just fine... eventually! Every situation like this is a great story to add to the catalog for future conversations. I know that we'll exchange knowing looks and chuckle about this in the future. I also know that it will not be the last of the frustrating obstacles and experiences we will encounter along our learning curve. We'll keep our chins and attitudes up and continue to learn all we can from this amazing community.

We invite you to get to know us and follow our adventure through our website: The Roaming Base Camp
