Retired teacher becoming fulltimer w/my furry friend .

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

Hi, I'm a 68 yr. old retired teacher. I plan to go fulltime in my 24' rv this summer w/my little furry friend, Stanley. I just want to go and see what there is to see and do, wherever the front of my rv points and weather allows. I have few time tables and books full of places I want to see and experience. I do have to stop every 6 weeks to get a treatment for one of my eyes. I'm told that I can do this in lots of places across the country so I don't expect anything to really get in my way.
Unfortunately, because I will be a fulltimer, I won't have a place to offer fellow members. However, I will encourage other rvers, I meet along the way, to join the group in hopes that it will make up for it. I'll be traveling on a limited income and a night or two a week, when I'm in transit or have to stop for a treatment, would be a huge help. Besides, what really makes a place is the people. I am looking forward to learning about this country one person at a time. I want to go to local farmers' markets and see, do & eat what's local w/locals. Sure the majestic places are on the list but, life is more than looking at spectacular rocks and majestic trees. I sure hope to meet you along the way.

Skills & Expertise to Share

Not too good at much except a friendly conversation. I'll be lucky to master my little rv. A very steep learning curve is in my future. I was also a professional driver for 15 years.

I don't know yet. This is a story that will grow w/my travels.

I have a 2008 24' diesel class C Gulf Steam on a Sprinter chassis. I'm fully self contained and hope to get solar by next winter. I do have one slide for my main bed but don't usually put it out for overnight stays. I also have an electric bicycle for city jaunts.
