Newbie with FSX 260 RT Toy Hauler

Hi all,

I'm a long time camper but got tired of sleeping on cots in tents. My favorite hobby is astronomy and I wanted a rig that allowed me to take my 25" Obsession telescope to Star Parties and not sleep on the ground. Plus take my RZR 900 side by side ATV and Harley Trike on various excursions.

I grew up in Texas and and joined the Coast Guard. After a 20 year career I wound up in Maryland for the next 23 years. I love loving in the Mid-Atlantic coast region for all the beautiful mountains, rivers, and coasts within a three hour drive.

However, my son lives in San Antonio with my four grandkids so we are moving down there. Sort of a going back home move. I've used the toy hauler to move myself and have made five trips. That is kind of getting old.

I've recently retired and once I've completed my move I'm looking forward to many road trips with the toy hauler. I'm planning on Sedona AZ area for my first two/three week trip.

Looking forward to reading all the comments and suggestions on this forum.

Welcome from a Texan. I sympathize with your need to get off of cots and out of tents. You're going to have a lot more fun in that toyhauler.

Around 400 miles west of you is McDonald's Observatory where you can put that telescope to work. We went to one of their 'star parties' and really enjoyed it.
