New to everything

Hello people out there. My wife and I (Tom & Debbie) are about to begin our journey of the fulltime RV club. I just retired from the Navy in April, we will be selling our house in San Diego, buying a new RV (Columbus 320RS) and begin travelling and enjoying life and the country. Looking forward to getting out of California and back to the mountains, rivers and lakes that this great country has to offer. Already decided on our domicile state to be South Dakota and will be setting up our Mail forwarding (Address) there. Bought myself a new present for new years to prepare for our journey, my beautiful new 2011 Ram 3500 Dually. Anyway glad to be here and hope to see you on the road.

Hope you enjoy full time camping and I must say most people that I talk to say they really enjoy the freedom and by the way Thanks for your time in Navy and the support you have given to our country. My only son is 22 years old and he is in the Army and he just left last Friday for Afgan for his second tour, hope to see him by Christmas.

One thing about this Forum we like pictures so when you get a chance post some you will have a lot of time on your hand to keep us up dated

Welcome from another SoCal member! San Diego is a great place to camp but traveling to other wonderful places will be fun too.

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