Welcome our new RV

Since my wife and I started RV’ing with Wilbur we fell in love with the short length of Wilbur.  And we did enjoy the room in Smokey,  but the ideal length was something between the 22’ and 31’.
So now we settled on a 26’ Winnebago Intent.

So long Smokey

It looks like we have spent our last night in Smokey.
Now Smokey was our largest RV, and for a low budget motor home, we enjoyed many outings.
Now that we sold Smokey to some of our friends, we will probably still see him from time to time .
Now Wilbur will be put back into service.  It's been awhile but we have been spending some time time tuning up and moving back into 22' of RV.
Time will tell what we decide to use or buy.

Oregon State Parks Disabled veteran camping

Recently I was awarded a service connected disability for my time in the Air Force.  With that I get some benefits.  One of them is free camping in the Oregon State Parks.
Here's my first FREE camping trip to South Beach State Park.

Our first vacation with our new granddaughter.

My granddaughter

The wait is over.   Kendal was born and is doing great.   Grandma has been busy holding as much as she can. 

I wonder what she will think of a Winnebago.

Another free bago

I was told about this one and went to look.  Even for free it's no great deal. 
It's on Craigslist in mount angel Oregon.
