An Old Newby

Hello--I am an 87-year-old widower. My wife passed away last year. I decided at that time I was not going to spend the rest of my life mowing the grass and tending flowers. I was going to do something with the remaining years. I am preparing to become a full-time rv'r. I have put together an "outfit" of a used 2014 Forest River Wildcat 327ck and a 2018 Ram diesel 3500. I hope it works out as I do not want problems with the mountains (east or west). I have followed this forum for a few months and have learned many things I didn't even know I didn't know. Very helpful and I am sure I will be "picking the brains" of a lot of members. My dog "Tex" is going to be my "wingman". Looking forward to seeing yall "on the road".

Welcome from Wisconsin. Sorry to hear about your wife. Enjoy your new adventure. It's going to be alot more fun than mowing the grass and tending flowers.

Welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear of your wife passing. Congrats on your purchase and enjoy and I'm also a widower but choose to camp part time as I would not be able to have the hobby I have by full timing. Later RJD
