Last nite, our 17 year old motorhome sold. So many memories, kinda sad but relieved. Almost feels like we lost an old friend.

Wife and I started "camping" in the early-mid 70s with a Honda 750 motorcycle, air mattress, sleeping bags and pup tent. Babies started coming, bought a used popup, found the 5 of us could camp for 5 days for less than one nite in a hotel. Made sense. Then we found we really liked it.

Bought a used 1986(?) 22 foot SCOTTY, (only made them for, I think, 2 years,) had that for 4 years, then a new 1990 DUTCHMAN TT.

Retired in '99, , in 2001 sold the house and bought a new DOLPHIN motorhome...traveled the Country for 2 years,then bought a small house and then snowbird time for 4 years in New Mexico and Arizona.

Best part was we met folks and had experiences one simply cannot get at 400 mph at 35,000 feet.

On this forum for quite a few years. Found it interesting. Good info, bad info but always entertaining.

Keep it safe and enjoy !

Good luck Jimmy. I'm both looking forward to and regretting getting to the day when we do the same.

Reminds me of the two happiest days of `boating' `rving' `sailing' or whatever; one when the item is purchased and the other is when it is sold.
We don't like to say the camping/biking season is over but prefer `until next time'.

jerseyjim, good luck on your future endeavors.

We, like you, started the "camping" experience in the early 70's, and are much closer to the end than the start.

Again, Good luck
