Well folks it sure has been great reading the posts on here plus staying at the RV parks and chatting with some really nice people.
But I turn 86 next month and the ole eyesight is fading, I'm just not a quick with my actions driving any more. Plus it's getting very hard getting up the steps into the MH.
We just thought it's time to get rid of the MH and quit traveling. We gave our son the MH and the MH carport is very empty.
I really miss jumping in it and heading out to just where ever we wanted too go.
Y'all drive carefully and keep safe and remember it's not where you are going, it's enjoying the trip getting there.

Best of luck to you. Hope you continue to get out and enjoy life!
By the way, you can still stick around this place and share your knowledge and experience. It would be appreciated!

Best regards,

Happy birthday. I know it was a tough decision that all of us will be faced with. I recently sold my plane due to my wife has a health issue that will progress so I kinda know what you went thru with the decision.

Happy Birthday and Best Wishes to you. I can only hope to have the longevity you have had!

Life is a lot like a baseball pitch. Sometimes you get a fast ball down the middle of the plate and sometimes you get a curve ball in the dirt.

I'm 15 years your junior, a disabled veteran and I'm having problems hoking up the towed and so forth. If we could sell our MH I think we might give it up. But still upside down on it, so we push ourselves to get use of it. Still enjoy what it is all about though.

You've got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run ...

Sad to hear, but you are wise in your decision. You know your limitations. That has been my anchor point on these forums for years encouraging folks to fully understand and know the limits of their RV's and their related equipment. The most important piece of equipment, is...after all ... us!

Hope your son enjoys the MH as much as you did. Hope you continue to share your experiences on these forums and try to teach these "young-uns" how it's REALLY done!

Good luck!

Best of luck! Please don't leave the forum, though. Your wealth of experience is very helpful.
