Hi everyone!

I'm Renee. I sold my house in Boulder, CO and put everything in storage until I figure out where the next house will be located. Meanwhile, I've been having the time of my life fulltiming the last 2 years. I have a Dutch Star 4369. It's my 1st coach, 1st time camping....lots of firsts. The monsters (Alfie and Sophie) and I did a CPU at Newmar and they taught me how to drive and sent us on our way. I haven't had the typical work the kinks out of my new coach (Eee gads, not so new anymore). Got a new engine, air cooler....oh so many things...whatever strange possibilities that could arise, I managed to experience them, but all and all it has been a blast. Currently, I have returned "home" to the mothership for servicing. It's like my coach knew we were returning so a few more things broke on the way here. . . always something to keep me on my feet. 😂

With that list of issues, I sense the need for a little "comfort food," Renee. How many trips have you made to the Rise'n Roll Bakery in Nappanee? Have a couple of those yummy Key Lime custard-filled pastries for us, please.

Hope things go well with the work on your coach.

Hahah! Thanks for the good wishes. Went to Spartan before I made it to Newmar and we got a clean bill of health with just a few minor fixes. Whew! No, no, no....don't tempt me. I'm addicted to the apple fritters at Rise n' Roll and so far I've been soooo good....😂 Oh heck, it is inevitable, isn't it? I'll think of you when I go indulge.

I wasn't a member until 6 weeks after you make this post, so this is the first time I've seen this thread.. So laughingly I say, "Hi, and welcome to the forum ARD !" :)

Welcome Ard! You have great stories to tell. I want to make sure I have my facts right. Weren’t you in Montana like last week doing the quarantine thing and now you are in Napanee? That’s moving! Hope your visit goes well.

This is an old thread that has come back to life. 😊 I’m still in Montana. They haven’t kicked me out yet, as I’m on my best behavior. 🤥

I’m sorry @ARD, I feel I've done you a disservice and owe you an apology. But in my own defense, who knew these rabble-rousers could read? :)
