Another New Member Intro
Just joined the forums and looking forward to mining information about our RV.
As an intro, I was raised in an RVing family as members of the Del Norte Motorhome Club of Cupertino, CA. My folks started out with a 22ft Automate bumper pull which we outgrew in a year. A family member was recently widowed and sold my folks their 2 year old 28ft Pace Arrow. We were rarely home on the weekends. I loved it when we would get out of school on Friday afternoons and find my folks waiting for us in the RV in front of the school. We felt like rock stars as we loaded into the Rig and drove off for a weekend of adventure.
My love for RVing has been so patiently on hold as I have been building my career and establishing security for my family. Over the years, I would rent a class C for a week at the lake or even just for a long weekend. My wife was luke warm about the idea so I did not push it - but always had in mind that we would end up with something - some day. Well that day came this week!
On a complete whim, I announced to my wife a two children of 7 & 12, "Let's go look at RV's." We have spent a few afternoons in the last year "dream building" but I had NO INTENTION of buying anything yet. Guess what followed me home; a clean 2005 Jayco Granite Ridge 3100SS. The girls were so excited when I brought it home that they slept in it the first night - right in the front yard.
I am looking forward to revisiting places of my youth as well as new ones. But mostly I am so proud to be able to give my family the experiences I was given by my folks who sacrificed so much so we could have a childhood full of good memories.
