Howdy from Texas

Just wanted to say "Hi" and introduce myself a bit. I just moved into a 2011 Jay Flight 22FB last Monday and am thoroughly enjoying it. I'm in San Marcos, TX finishing the last half of my schooling at Texas State University and so far I can tell this was a wise choice moving into a travel trailer for the first time. It sure beats living in an apartment and at least I'll have something to show for my monthly payments in the end. The campground I'm at is nice and quiet and I'm on the outskirts of town so I'm not dealing with the hussle and bustle of the city.

As for my personal interests... I dig old muscle cars (I'm working on one of my own with my dad in my spare time), kayaking, fishing, camping, etc.. I'm studying Criminal Justice with an aspiration of joining Texas Parks & Wildlife post school. Should everything go as planned I will find myself living in this trailer as a Park Ranger somewhere in one of the many gorgeous places the Lone Star state has to offer.

I'm looking foward to participating here on the forum and getting to know many of you folks. However, just as a forwarning, I imagine I'll have quite a few questions for the next few months.

Welcome to the Jayco Owners Forum Michael! You are ambitious and will go places! Maybe not to different cg's at the moment, but that time will come! LOL

We stay in our tt 3 weeks to 3 months at a time. Check my signi, although our tt is "small" for semi-fulltime, we do well as my camping buddy and I like each other and parnter up well (DH for 33 years).

Ask away, I can pretty much guarantee you aren't going to be able to stump anyone here as we have so many members with vast experiences. Congrats on working on your criminal justice degree as well as your new tt!!

Thanks for the warm welcoming you two.

healthi, I feel you on the "small" living aspect. I'm nearly two weeks into my living arrangement and while it's a very tight home, it's also very nice to have such a compact area to call home. I live a very meager life for someone of my age but I fancy it very much! Now, I just need to sell my Ranger and get a bigger truck that can actually pull the trailer when need be.

Welcome Mike and it's not a bad idea to build some equity versus just paying rent.

Congrats on the trailer. I have to say at least you have a plan, There are to many young people out there that don't. Again congrats Ernie
