Good Evening. May I Join The Fun?

Hello All,

My name is Garry Summers, and my wife and I are full time RV'ers that are having a great time traveling around this great country.

We retried in 2005 (I was 55 and she was 53), although today she turned 55. We're originally from Wisconsin, and since leaving, we've already traveled from coast to coast. We're currently in southern California, but on May 1st, we'll be arriving at Yellowstone National Park where we get to spend the entire summer.

Since we started traveling, I've gotten bit by the dutch oven cooking bug. I'm slowly trying different recipes and getting a "feel" for this great way of cooking.

I'm looking forward to participating with this forum, especially the Outdoor Cooking forum. I hope I also can contribute from to time.

"Outdoor Cooking forum. " - What outdoor cooking forum?????

geez, guess I'd better look around here more....

Garry, my husband and I are semi-retired (well, I'm fully, he's not yet - I took him to raise... ) and are just getting into longer and longer trips in our 5th wheel. We'll never (should not say 'never' I guess) go full time, we love our home/location too much, but we sure are looking forward to longer trips in another year or so.

think I'd better go check out that outdoor forum -

Welcome Garry! Wow! You're living the life my DH and I dream of. We are a little young (40's) to think of that for the time being though! So happy you are living your dream! Welcome aboard!

What's RV'd? Ignorance is a special thing I guess.

Thanks to all for the nice welcome.

Jikoni - RV'd or RV'ng is traveling around the country in a Recreational Vehicle, such as a travel trailer, a 5th wheel trailer, or a motorhome. In our case, after we retired, we sold our house and bought a 40' motorhome that we live in full time as we travel.

Please feel free to visit our web page (listed in my profile) to see some of the things that full timing is all about.
