Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.

We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

Hi all,
What a great idea Howard and Linda. There's always room for another RV discussion group.

Best way to introduce ourselves is to copy the intro from our blog,

This is the blog of two crazy Wishnies, Fred and Jo, who, on a whim, decided to shed the trappings of "normal life": home, family, jobs, possessions, everything we took for granted, and go off to see the world. Or at least, the world of our United States.

After living for six years in a 2400 sq. ft. urban loft condo in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, we have chucked it all, and are going to shoehorn ourselves and our two cats, Phoenix and Hemmingway, into a 390 sq. ft. Fifth Wheel Trailer, towed by a Ford F350 Diesel Dually Crew Cab pickup truck.

Not only was this a 180 lifestyle change, but we have no camping experience, both of us having lived an urban life our entire lives, disdaining even the suburbs. So a mere six months ago (8/14/05), we began researching, planning, dreaming and hoping. And now the impulse has become reality (2/12/06), and we're off to begin the greatest adventure of our lives. We're going to share it all with you, the good, the bad and the ugly.

We hope you'll enjoy living vicariously through us by this blog, as we crisscross this great country, looking for the flavors and customs of the different regions. We hope to make many new friends and discoveries along the way and share them with you. And we would love to hear from you as well. You may leave messages on this website for all to share, or email us privately either at josie@execpc.com or luvglass@execpc.com.

I don't remember where I read or heard this quote, but want to start you off with this thought: "Those who thrive are those who have the ability to recognize their dream, the gumption to pursue it and the compassion to share it."

We've been out 6 months now, and have never looked back. Look forward to meeting many of you on our travels.
