Kinda, sorta new to the forum

Hello everyone. I'm Garry, and I've actually been a member for several months now but have never really introduced myself. My LW (lovely wife) Mary and I are empty nester (happy days are here again) and we bought our first TT this fall, a shamrock 21SS. We haven't picked it up yet since it was Oct. and the dealer offered to store it for us over the winter. We go to pick it up April 19th, or 43 days and counting. I've been reading alot on the forum and it's a great place to learn things about towing, maintenance and such. I'm intrested in the F.R.O.G. Am I already a member just by joining the website?
I'm looking forward to discovering more on the this site. Thanks for listening, or is it reading?

Garry, Mary, the dog, Binky and the new dog Bourbon.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

Hi Garry and thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself!

As for your question, I think you asked if you are a member of FROG by joing Forest River Forums and the answer is "no". They have a seperate website FROG - Forest River Owners Group where you can sign up.

Of course, those members are also very active here on our forum and there is a lot of FROG stuff going on in the The Rally Zone | F.R.O.G. Events - Forest River Forums.

The man to go to for answers on FROG is Bob Byrne, their director (aka F.R.O.G.). You can shoot him a PM if you need more information.

Congratulations on that new Shamrock and all the best on April 19th!!

Welcome to the forums! Glad to have you here. April sounds like a long way away but it will be sooner than one would expect.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

You can spend the time until April researching this forum to decide what modifications you are going to do when you get the rig home!!

Welcome to the forum Garry. Wifey and I are also empty nesters and we think it sucks. We built our house around the kids and their friends. My oldest is a professional musician now residing in Hollyweird. The middle kid a computer geek and drummer and my baby girl now 20 yrs old...a shark attny-to-be. Yeah, they are diversified and our castle is awfully quiet since they moved out. BTW, I've got a semi-professional recording studio in the house for rent if anyone's interested. Enjoy the Forum. There's a lot of talent on here that can answer a lot of technical questions. Other's like me that love to stir the s**t pot.

welcome to FRF and the wonderful world of hybrids!!

there's a Shamrock sub-forum under the Expandable/Hybrid section.
lots of 21SS owners there and in the Roo sub-forum. the Roo is the twin brand of the Shamrock and a much more popular brand, due to having way more dealers.
