Newbie from Iowa

At my age (64) I like being called a newbie!

We have camped for 33 years starting with Coleman pop-ups, then a Layton TT, and now a Winnebago E350 V10 22R. Which we bought in the spring of this year.

This is the smallest camper that I want to stay in and the largest motorhome that I want to drive.

I immediately put a five star tuner on it, and then installed a ScanGauge II on it.

So far we are very happy with our Winnebago, we knew it had to be good because it was made in Iowa.

I am way into motorcycles, I have seven including three Japanese classics, all of them are Kawasaki triples, 400, 500 and 750. I also have a 250 Kawasaki dual sport that I put on the back of the camper, instead of carrying a spare.

My wife and I play music in a couple of bands, so songs around the campfire are the normal order of business.

I am looking forward to all the things I can learn from you all.
