Hello to all from Arlington, Wa.

I'm John & my wife is Kathy. Last June we bought a 14 Sabre 32RCTS-6.
Got a pretty decent deal on it and we just love it.
I winterized it but it has been really warm here all winter. Getting the urge to un-winterize it but that would probably bite me you know where.
I'm retired US Coast Guard. and spent a lot of years owning a semi and running tugboats in Alaska. Fully retired now.
Tower is a 2002 Ford F350 Super Duty 7.3 Powerstroke. Got the T-6 chip and other goodies.
Also a ham radio operator, W7TUG, and a Navy/Marine Corps MARS operator NNN0OUE
Will submit pics soon. Thanks all!
We are looking forward to becoming snow birds next winter.

Welcome, Tugger. We're ex-pat Brits so have only a family connection with US Services. Our son joined the USN straight out of high-school, did six years active then 4 reserve. He was an electronics tech on the Curts (an FFG), stationed at Yukosaka the entire time. He rostered out after his 10. married a Japanese girl he met while over there and is now a resident of Japan, working for a French avionics and computer company.

We're in Anacortes and were FR owners until early last December. We hadn't used the MH all last season, and had only put 6000 miles on it in four years. We couldn't see the point of having the funds tied up in something we didn't use. We sold it on consignment with a dealer in Burlington.

Frank and Eileen
No longer RVers or FR owners
