We just bought our first Motorhome. It's a 2013 Coachman 280DS. We used to be avid boaters having owned various boats from 22 foot to 42 foot. We are originally from Lockport, NY on the Erie Barge Canal. We retired in 1997 and purchased a 38 Foot Chris Craft 381 Catalina. (THE PATRICIA ANNE). In September of 1998 we departed Lockport, NY in the Patricia Anne and headed South. We went as far as Calabash, NC and spent the winter there. In the spring we moved up to the Myrtle Beach Yacht Club in Little River, SC. We stayed there for approximately 2 years but we woke up one morning to 2 inches of snow on top of the boat. We decided we hadn't gone far enough South. That fall we departed Little River and headed South for Florida. We eventually ended up in Palmetto, Florida on the Manatee River. While in Florida we traded the Patricia Anne in and bought a 42 foot Chris Craft (THE PATRICIA ANNE TOO). We lived on this boat for approximately 3 years and eventually sold her and bought a house in Palmetto, FL.
We eventually moved to our present location in Priceville, AL because my wife's daughter was ill and she was spending more time in Alabama than Florida and I was not happy with our Florida lifestyle. I was raised on a farm and lived in the country most of my life. I was not used to walking out my front door and being in the neighbors yard. So we sold the house and moved here to Priceville were we have a big house and large lot.
So having sold our latest boat we have decided to hit the road in our motorhome and hoping to have some Happy Trails and Times.
