Introducing myself at last


Hello everyone,
Whoops, looks like I posted my Into in the wrong section of the forum. Please forgive as this is my first time ever posting on RV Dreams. Here is what I originally wrote in the Welcome forum-- I cut and pasted it in this Introduce Yourself section now. Thanks!
_________________________________________________________
I've been lurking around on the RV Dreams site for a few months off and on, and realized today that it's time to come out and say hello. Here's what prompted this action. I had bookmarked a few RV Forums, and by mistake today I opened a different one (RV Dreams is by far my favorite). As soon as I opened the page, I noticed it didn't look warm, inviting or optimistic like RV Dreams does! I left the other site and came to this one, and felt a surge of gratitude for all of you guys.

I have never owned an RV, nor even taken a real vacation in one. My first and only memories of being in one was when I was a teenager and I got to ride in my cousin's truck camper, on our way to Disneyland. It was such fun and left an impression on me!!

I am currently planning a life of full time RVing, and hope to be doing so within a year- two on the outside. How do I know I will love it? I am absolutely positive, since I am a 'nester', who loves my home, yet am an absolute vagabond at heart, and have traveled since I was a child. I see RVing as being able to live both of these lives at the same time! My husband and I are currently building a flexible, work from home business to support this goal, and as soon as it is solid enough we will be ready to buy our RV, travel, and pursue more of our artistic nature. (I'm an artist and my husband is a photographer, and the traveling will help give us endless subjects to paint/photograph.)

Thanks to all of you for your honest insights and sharing on this wonderful forum.That RV Expense Spreadsheet is especially helpful for planning. I have gratitude for Howard and Linda too, for creating a place where I can preview the joys, challenges and everyday reality of RVing; as well as the tips you give each other. Love your stories on how you transitioned or plan to, as I don't feel so alone-- I don't personally know anyone who has done what we're about to do.

Thanks for reading to my lengthy intro here, as I share my own full time RV dream/plan in public for the first time. I look forward to future conversations, too.smile

Welcome to the family of RV'ers, whether they be full-timers, part-timers, or wannabees.

I agree that RV Dreams is the friendliest website and forum that I have encountered.  Of course, I don't frequent all that many of them.

If you ever get a website for showing your artwork and photographs, be sure and let us know.  I am also a "serious, amateur" photographer and my mother was a self-taught artist.  Later in life, after her divorce from my dad, she taught painting.

Hopefully, I will soon have a place on Smugmug to show some of my photos.  (Smugmug is the one that Howard and Linda uses.)

Terry

Terry,
Thanks to you and everyone here who has welcomed me to the RV Dreams Forum since my post!
Regarding my art website, I have added it to my signature now, but here it is in case it doesn't show- http://www.westerntrailsart.com/. I've been working part time on my art for about 10 years and am now looking forward to dedicating more time to my art passion. Meanwhile I'm thrilled to finally have my own web site, which my husband helped me to create.

Thanks for sharing about your family and how art and photography continue to be a part of it--especially for you with your photos. Would love to see them when you get them up!

Welcome AdventureKat! You sound like you guys have the "Right Stuff" to be happy RVers. I had never RV'ed before either but now LOVE it. I think that you guys will too.

Good luck in all of your planning!
