new member and finally did it

Hello All, finally got my activation and going fulltime next month. bought myself a 2011 montana high country 343RL and am looking forward to getting under way. sold the sticks and bricks and gave away, sold or just donated everthing i could. this was my late wife and my dream to do this year but unfortunately i lost her at age 46 to a sudden heart attack. so i am going to keep the dream going with myself andf our pooch. cant wait to meet all of you out on the road. everyone i have talked to in a variety of full timer forums has been so nice and friendly. well enough rambling may you all travel safe and live the dream.

Mike, Terribly sorry for the loss of your wife. I wish you ALL THE BEST in your endeavors to live the dream that both of you had. If you ever get to Arizona and need anything, look me up. We are in Casa Grande.

BTW, even if you don't need anything, still look us up, we can do lunch or something!!!
