Smile Hey newbie here! Jeff & Naomi aka "puppygeo"

We've both been camping since our childhoods. Our first time camping together was before we were married, over 33 years ago in a huge canvas ten! Then we moved on to wheeled vehicles, first an archaic class c, a tent trailer, a truck camper, and last year - a 2019 Thor Chateau V25, Class C Ford cutaway. Even though the cab space is cramped for my 6'5 stature, the (always open) king-size bed allows for a HUGE basement which makes up for it. With two yellow labs, it makes for a cozy house on wheels. I've been doing a lot of upgrades and I'll post some of those as well as hacks in the proper subs.

Quick story, 4 days after we picked up the coach, a drunk driver ran into us. No one hurt, but $10K of damage and 9 weeks in the shop. We finally get it back and my father falls ill, so it's off to Florida for 7 weeks. I get back early December and our "east coast" trip is pretty much whiteout conditions, so we decided to wait until Spring ... and then Covid-19. Looking back, we only spent 10 nights total in the coach over a 10 month period. Needless to say we're ready for some adventures! I look forward to contributing to the group as much as I can.

Welcome to the forum. There is a lot of knowledge here, just for the asking. Make some new memories out on the road and enjoy.
