i am building Rosie up as my full-time home in the following months, so I will be in need of some experienced tips! also i hope i can connect with like-minded people from this community! : )

Greetings & Welcome!

You came to the right place, lots of good people here.

Iโ€™ve done winters down to -60 and summers up to +123 comfortably in my vans or motorhomes. I have lived on the road by choice since right out of high school, working 30 years as a traveling construction worker, and now I make even more money working for myself. 47+ years and counting, and Iโ€™ve rarely regretted my choices. I plan to continue as long as possible.

Weโ€™re glad youโ€™re here, and look forward to your participation.
