I turned 60 November 2016 and bought my first RV, a 1998 Tiffin Allegro Diesel Pusher, after selling my sticks and bricks. I am currently in Niceville, FL, parked in my sister's back yard renovating it, to fit a small jewelry studio to work and live. Well.... That all got side tracked as she had some issues, so I have been in and out of the repair shop getting her electrical guts some much needed upgrading. I had planned to add solar, but with all the repairs, that expense will be on hold for a while, so if I can boodock with fellow RVrs some of the time, that will help the budget tremendously, while I save up for the solar! :-) I have my first adventure booked with Sisters on the Fly the weekend of Saint Patrick's Day at Ceder Key, so I have to be done renovating by then (hopefully no more interruptions for repairs!) Pulled out all the flooring and am replacing it all myself, also doing some painting. After that fun event, I head to a 55+ park in Bushnell to check it out for 3 days on my way to Little Manatee River State Park for a family get together (parents are flying in from TX and will join me). Then back to Bushnell to stay at an Escapees park so that I can use smart weigh. I will be there for 4 days, in case I need to do some rearranging. After that I'd like to meander through Florida through April, boondocking as much as I can. I am on the wait list for RVDreams educational event in Tennessee the first on May so will work my way back up to the Asheville area (where I spent the last 20 years), visit with friends and pick up some mementos that I left with a friend, to take to my son in Minnesota, where I will spend the summer. I was a hairstylist for 20 years, which included owning my own Salon, and now I have been a studio artist for 22 years.

Skills & Expertise to Share

I'm a do-it-yourselfer and can figure most things out, non electrical.
