Welcome to a whole new world... travelling the country side old school is the best experience for the kids.  Wish you folks the best in learning your RV and growing with it in knowledge and experience as you fix her up and the joys she can bring you and your family out on the road.  Look forward to future posts as your journey begins... Don't forget the before pictures.... Love pictures

It's a good idea to post all your project topic links in this one as you go along.  However, do understand this "thread" will always slip down the boards due to the nature of the message board.  And, you can take advantage of a good feature I added here too...  you don't need to post all your projects on the different, related boards... if you're planning on giving us "this is how I'm doing it", instructional type of info (like your roof project so far) then they are perfect for the "Projects" board.  They will all be collected in one place and actually easier to find than mixed in all the other boards.
 
Also... once someone sees your posts... they can "bookmark" them!

Oh ya I'm a big fan of high tech.  Something that I may be able to offer in the future,  (very close just need a few more parts to finish) 3d printing.  Do ya have a hard to find plastic part that needs replaced?  In the next month or so (depends on how much time, and weather mostly, I work on The Beast) I should have a 3d printer, maybe 2, that will have no problem making hard to find plastic parts.  Example: the "clip" that holds your sun visor in place.  Saw it mentioned in another post.

I'm also working on a few more fun gadgets to help prototype new concepts and ideas.

I also am a huge fan of the outdoors.  I'm the type of guy that can shut off his need for "high tech" and just enjoy the simple life.  It is actually welcomed from time to time.

Thanks all for the warm welcome!!!

Mike
