I'm a retired geek who finally has time to soak up some great American scenery, seeking good memories, especially with family & friends.

When on the road, I prefer pulling my classic 2017 Escape fifth wheel with my Ford F150. My Bigfoot is a 22 foot molded fiberglass trailer made in British Columbia. Although it's remarkably compact on the outside it gets bigger when you come through the door.

While I await my wife's retirement, I look for any excuse to drive cross country to fetch a daughter from school take my grandsons on awesome adventures.

I also enjoy the enjoy attending any molded fiberglass trailer rally I can get to. These are full of interesting folks with a "less is more" attitude. Our 13-21' rigs fit into places traditional RVs cannot imagine.

Skills & Expertise to Share

My computer skills are on the decline because these days I mostly use my iPhone. I pretty around my trailer, ageing features and attractions as time permits. I have advanced DIY skills in RV and household plumbing and electric.

ReagentGrade's Pets

Our four cats stay at homes and severely chastise us when we return.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

I love joining the owners of 200 fiberglass trailers at our annual Quartzsite gathering each February. Other than that, I look for chances to get off grid. My trailer has ample solar and batteries to support me indefinitely. My limitation ideas my limited tank size, but even they are amongst twice there size of my previous trailer, a classic 1987 Bigfoot fiver (also fiberglass).

Texas Friendly

The family was very cordial and a pleasure to have as our guests. Rich's enthusiasm is enjoyable. Newly retired he is full of energy and is hopping all over the place seeing this great country of ours. We would love to see his rig after he is finished restoring it to its former glory. They are welcome to stop here anytime for a visit. Ginny, his wife, is now jealous of his retirement and I would suspect she will soon follow suit. Marina, their daughter recently graduated from college is perky and full of contagious enthusiasm. Very pleasant and pleased with her short visit here and the DIA Visit they partook in.
She will definitely return we're sure.
