  1. Class of 2018

    Welcome Ridgekid. Glad to have you join the class of 2018. Like you, our winter project is to clean out the house. We’re waiting until after Christmas to really do this in earnest.
  2. Class of 2018

    Katblondie, Welcome to the class of 2018. My wife and I just did the Florida thing. It sounds like we are doing much the same things, going through closets etc. We currently live in Virginia but we have a nice set of china sitting in a storage unit in California that we will have to deal with at Christmas when we are there. So far we haven’t found anyone interested in buying them, so it looks like they will end up a donation.

    Another update. We have now established our Escapees Florida address and made a trip down to Bushnell and got our Florida drivers licenses. Yesterday we were at the Hershey RV show and put the final touches on the order for our Entegra Aspire 44B motorhome. We got a great deal from RV One and will take delivery in July from their Orlando location when I retire.

    I guess it's time for an update. We are now just exactly a year away from retirement and hitting the road. We have settled on what coach we want to buy. The first week of June we went on a factory tour and watched them build a coach like the one we want. Then, towards the end of June we took one for a test drive. That really settled it in our minds so there is no more debating. We are also in the midst of purchasing a Thousands Trails Elite Membership. I think we got a great deal on the membership so we are very pleased with that. It should fit our needs very well. We have also started collecting some of the items we want for the coach. And of course, we will now start weeding stuff out and disposing of stuff we won't take with us.

    Welcome aboard Bob. I'm glad to hear that you plans are coming together. I hope we can meet up some time while we're on the road.

    I think that Escapees are a great organization. Anyone interested in Fulltiming should consider joining. We visited their headquarters and park in Livingston, TX.
  7. Class of 2018

    Welcome Jeff and Diane. I'm glad you joined us in the Class of 2918. We should be hitting the road about the same time as you. I retire on September 1, 2018 but will have several weeks of vacation that I need to take prior to retirement so we actually plan to leave around the second week of July. This may sound strange but we are from the West coast and currently living on the East coast. Our plans are to start out with a Fall Colors Tour in New England.

    Welcome mds1. We are still planning on mid to late summer in 2018. I officially retire on September 1st but we plan to take some vacation at the end and leave a little earlier.

    Welcome to the club. I'm sure the salesman hate me to for the same reason. What I hate is a salesman who doesn't know his product. It's sad when it is clear that I know more about it than they do. Perhaps they should go back to selling used cars. It seems rare to find a salesman that understands the needs of a full timer.

    "We've already changed our mindset and now look at every purchase with the question "Will we take it with us when go full time?" I have to admit, we do that too. We just bought a new vacuum cleaner with the thought in mind that it would work good in the motorhome.

    Is anyone headed to Hershey this next month?
  12. Class of 2018

    Well, I'm glad to see that I didn't start this too early. I've been patiently waiting for someone else to pull the trigger and finally gave up on the waiting game. Yes, 20 years is a long time but we've been talking about it, drooling over various rigs etc. for at least that long. We started looking at 5th wheels and have over the years settled on looking at 43' diesel pushers. It is too bad Life on Wheels has gone by the way because we really liked attending one of those in Tucson a few years back. Just can't wait for the next three years to roll by so that the real fun can begin.
  13. Class of 2018

    Is anyone interested in starting a class of 2018? My wife and I will retire in August 2018 and have been planning to fulltime for over 20 years.
