Hello From The Newby

Howdy all. Just signed up. Hope to learn some new RV stuff. We have been full timers for the past 2 years, and enjoy the desert southwest for our travels. We don't mind the heat. We camp ground host, and and we boon dock from time to time.

Howdy and welcome from Louisiana!

These fine folks will make ya feel right at home and help ya anyway they can.

hostin' eh? DH and I wanna try that when that golden age of freedom comes, otherwise known as retirement.

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:

Thanks for all the nice replies. Much appreciated.

Weezer; campground hosting is a good way to see a lot of the country economically. It's not hard work, and we get to meet a lot of different folks form different cultures. My advice to anyone who wants to become a CGH is to try to get in with the Federal folks. National Parks, BLM, etc... They seem to have the most to offer for volunteers. Right now we are in a National Park, and they furnish free power, water, and sewer. We pay for phone, tv, and internet.
