That's a really nice looking rig you have there. We will be retiring in March 2007 and going full-time later that year. I hope we run into you (not literally) sometime on the road.

Indeed that IS a very nice set up you have there.

Hopefully, my next truck!

Anyway, something I can work towards and plan for.

With the big fivers they have now, its the only real way to tow!

Larry & Kathy,

We plan on going cross country in the summer of '07 visiting RV manufacturers before making our final selection of our full-time 5er.
We may go through WI on our journey.

MDTDriver; I've seen your truck in a park somewhere, and when I came back the following day to say hi, and look at your truck, you had pulled out. Sorry to have missed you. I'm heading to the bottom of Texas for the winter, and thought I might get some paint work done on my truck. My box is showing signs of being tired. Yours looks GREAT!
I'll keep my eye out for you.

This is my 5th truck and the best , and it was 5 years old when we got it.
All the rest were purchased new.
Hope to see all of you some time on the road.

MDT, That is one fine looking rig. It will be a hard one to miss and so I will be keeping a lookout for it as we travel on down the road. Now ya gotta git the 5er done to match.

Thanks for the fine words, the 5er paint is at the top of my list, but not my wife's, she says I have spent it all on the truck.
Hope to see you on the Road.

Larry,

Did you ever get over to that RV park near Madison last year? I recall we talked about it when you came by to see the sat system.

Travels

We arrived in Ca. in Dec.06. We spend a lot of out time in Riverside County,Ca. Our doctors are in Orange County, where our oldest son and grandsons live. But they moved in April to Riverside County, Muriieta just north of Temcula,Ca. This is only 10 miles from one of our TTN camp grounds. So we spend a lot of time there.
We are in San Diego,Ca. for Memorial week end.
See you on the road

Larry & Kathy plus Meeko who loves the 32deg. temp

Visting

We may not be in Wi in summer 07 or 08 now. Wife's mothr passed away in Feb.07 and that is one reason we spent the last 6 summer in Wi.
Now our son and Grandsons live just 10 miles form one of our camp grounds in Riverside country Ca. So I may work in that camp ground for a site all summer? The grandsons lived 70 miles away from our nearest membership camp ground, before this summer.
