Memory lane with an old RV.

The greatest thing about getting a project RV,, isnt just to take something thats unique or different and re-do or rebuild.

It goes deeper then that. A lot of us here on GORV's, are the Baby boomer generation, (some older,, some younger). But our age group grew up wayyyyy before computers and color TV's especially flat screens.

Friendly competion between friends.

Total justafiable RANT

Ok peeps,,, I have to rant on this one.
