Smile Hello from Glenford, NY

Hi All. I am finely going to make the move and get a Fifth Wheeler.
I can not Wait to hit the road. As the old Motto says !! TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF MY LIVES ( Well that should be our lives)
The other Part of the out Is my girl friend who will be the my copilot and navigator > She is returning to the States after 26 years in the US Army of which the last ten has been in the Sandbox in Iraq. So I am thinking that the first place should visit is Denali National Park in Alaska. That way she can cool down from the heat of Iraq . Plus she has never scene snow before as she comes the deep south.

Another welcome to you, and thanks to her for serving.
Denali will be great for cooling/settling down, just be sure to have reservations if going before Labor Day.

10 years in Iraq--a fate worse than death? WoW!
All the places you mention are well worth visiting--always plan to stay longer then you think you will need to stay--some of these take time to look over.
Have been to AK twice, hope to go again before too old to travel.
Might keep in mind to do some of your visiting outside of the summer months--crowds are gettin atrocious--RVs are selling like hotcakes and they all want a place to stay.
Best of luck and congratulations.
Joe

Mary told me that they don't call it the sand box for nothing. and the heat just terrible. But on the good side her time in Iraq is paying for the rig . She wants New Horizons RV 39' Majestic: M39FB4S That is the one with the bath and a half. And I have got her to be happy with that one . She wanted the biggest they make, But I told her the longest tow vehicle and trailer by law is 65 foot. she asked me does any company have one with a swimming pool ? She is a full bird colonel and nothing is impossible to them. Mary started out as a Private she will retire as a Colonel. Plus the Army sent her to Medical School where she got her PHD as well.
it will be to know the the person sitting in the copilot's seat is a doctor.
We have a deal She gets to pick the house on wheels and I get to pick the tow Vehicle and i a going the a Volvo 780 HDT .
Mary wanted a motor home but I was not for that All I could see was with that wind screen and a head on and the front cap being Fiberglass The driver is toast.
In the aviation industry there is a motto. That pilot in the first one to the scene of the accident, In I feel that the same is true with Motor Homes. But I did give in a bit . Mary wants a new Volvo 780, She did not want a tow Vehicle with 300,000 on the clock. So I gave in to her. since she is paying. Isn't it big of me. I hope you do not mind me yanking like this You are the first Person that I have spoken to that has made the Alaska trip. And Feel you know some thing about it.and not trying to sell me something.
Thank for chatting with me. Bob

Well, goodness, sounds like you two are really going to have a livable/trailable combo. NH is top of the line in anyone's book.
PHD/Colonel--doubly impressive.
Be sure and check out the HDT sections on many of the RV forum websites. And there is an annual meet of HDT rigs in Hutchinson, KS, that might be good to check out.

The Alaska round-trip is a fantastic adventure, and 4 months the first time was not enough. The Milepost map/info is first item to get, and subscribe to NorthtoAlaska.com for lots of good stuff. All of the Canadian Provinces/towns have tourist info to be asked for, and lots in AK also. Start gathering it all up...
She deserves a long, relaxing trip with no military worries.

Joe I think the world of her. And I would put my life on the line for her. I put my life on the line for People I do not even know. I have been a volunteer fire fighter for over twenty year so I put my life on the line every time the fire pager go off. If I can do that for the folks I do not know , I sure as heck do that for the woman I love.
In the Fire Service we have two slogan . the first is FIRE MEN STILL MAKE HOUSE CALLS and The second one PUT THE WET STUFF ON THE RED STUFF

Enjoyed reading your post. Your going to have a BLAST not only with the love of your life, but the new rigs. Take your time, your not going to be on vacation and only have a week or two to see things. The very first year of our full time travels we drove about 15,000 miles, then we slowed up and averaged less than 8,000 per year. Had a lot more fun going slow and really enjoying the lifestyle we chose.
Keep us in the loop of all your travels.
