Greetings

New to the forum. The wife and I retired in February moved out of our rental and stuffed our belongings into storage. For the next year or so we are official full timers. Were currently snowbirding at our local lake (Cachuma) close to the kids in Central California and when the weather clears in the spring, were off to Idaho and Montana for the summer. My rig is a 2007 Forest River Rockwood 8315 30ft (our first TT) which I just picked up last month. Three weeks in and we love it. My tow vehicle is an oldie but a goodie..1995 Ford F250 with the 7.3 Diesel (cosmetically challenged but mechanically solid). My hitch set-up is standard with the EAZlift weight distrubution and dual friction sway bars. I'm considering the dual cam sway system but I've not yet had enough road time in on what I currently have to make the leap. We are not new to RV's as we have had everything from tents to popups, overhead campers and an older Class A. This is our first experience as full timers. Looking forward to participating in the forum.

CONGRATULATIONS on your retirement! I hope to be joining you in retirement in 8 years, 129 days, 5 hours, 44 minutes - but who's counting - LOL!!

I hope retirement is everything you hoped for. Please post stories and photos of your adventures when you get a chance. Those of us who are still working will live vicariously though you until our retirement. Have fun!!
