Well, thanks to all of you our online rv community has finally gone live on the internet this morning.
I want to thank all of you for your help, encouragement and great feedback! And, a big special THANKS to Lilou, our web genius, for getting us launched.
Lilou is in France this month visiting and catching up with her parents who use took her caravaning in Europe. I'm sure she'll have some great tips on rving or caravaning in Europe when she gets back.
Now that we are driving the Goodoldrvs.com community out onto the electronic internet road it will be great to see where that road takes us.
Both Linda and I love to see photos, follow travel on your blogs and even view videos of your adventures and even misadventures ... we've had a few of those ourself. In fact, that's what prompted us to start this community as some of you know.
Our first trip in our "new", to us at least, 96 Fleetwood Southwind we broke down 4 times on the first trip, including a new transmission. You haven't lived until you have tried to push a 14,000 pound Southwind backwards on a dead end lane in a crummy KOA because the reverse has gone out on the transmission. Going home shifted by a brand new $6,000 transmission I can remember eagerly pulling into a beautiful rv resort just outside Palm Springs and heading up the dead end lane to our rv site, putting the tranny in reverse to back in and guess what, no reverse. Now, that is a "learning" experience. That's when Linda and I decided we needed help (many of our other friends think we are beyond help, but that's another story). Searching the internet we couldn't really find seasoned rvers to get help and advice from. So, we started GoodOldRVs.com hoping to start a community where rvers can reach out to others and ask questions about repair problems, get help finding a really good campground, what Walmarts can you "really" stay at and even get tips on how to buy a better good old rv next time.
