Talking Howdy from Silver Springs, FLA

Well, after moving down to florida back in Febuary to be closer to my dad, and staying in vacation homes I decided it was time to get a Motor Home and be a full timer. My oldest sister and her husband who lives in Houston Texas sold their 2 million dollar home and downsized to a 43 ft Motor Home, I figured if she can do it, surely I can with just myself and my black lab.
So, I bought a 2008 Forest River Georgetown 378TS 37 footer ..

I hope to meet some nice folks who can show me the ropes of RV Living..

Garrett

My dad lives on Lake George about 8 miles from Salt Springs RV park campgrounds..
I'm excited about my new adventures with this Forest River, life just got a whole lot simpler and better

I got an RV Lot in the Preserves section in the Wilderness resort, man I cant believe how nice these resorts are..

We had our camper at Elite resorts for over a year. Had a good time but things have changed at the resort. I enjoyed the forest and taking the motorcycle on the trails. Nice relaxing area.
We have been on the road over 230 days and have enjoyed the lifestyle.
Just take things slow and enjoy the scenery.
