Default Hello, hello

New to this site/forum. Learned of you folks over at RVparkReviews
We're fulltimers originally from southern california area. Sitting out the winter: catching up on good books, and new forums. SO many more out there than RVnet WOW.
Still learning how to apply a 'signature' and avitar photo...

Cheers!

Hello Bludog, welcome to the site. We are glad you found us.

Thanks ctfortner for the welcome!
Forgive me..I'm still stumbling around trying to get the 'signature' to stick
We upgraded to a 2007 Fleetwood Southwind 32' w/Ford V 10. First time pulling a toad: 2007 Honda Element.

Been camping forever, starting with backpacks/tents via various cars/Jeeps. First 'RV' was a used Class C and it was downhill from there!
These smillies are a crack-up.
Cheers! Bludog.

WELCOME bludog!

Your screen name makes me smile, because when I have a difficult task for my sweetie, I call it a "blue dog". Meaning, he will have as easy a time getting me what I asked for as he will to find a blue dog! (This was out there before that guy from the Soprano's died his dog blue!)

You will LOVE it here!

Welcome about bludog. yes I have finally figured out how to use the smilies so I am having a good time with them.
I like your signature picture. I love to watch songbirds-from what I can tell it looks like a Blue Bird-or is it another type of bird?

Wow...thanks everyone for the welcomes! You guys/gals are a breath of fresh air!
The avitar photo is an American Kestrel. Am 'seeing' birds from a different perspective now that we've slowed down a bit.
Great feedback on the bludog handle.
Always named our camping vehicles. Current rig is full body paint: hues of blue/grays...and a shorty by Class A standards.

These Smilies ARE so adorable! Great assortment !!!
Cheers!

I think everyone is geared up for spring time and camping. We all have the winter blues, some more so than others (Our northern friends)

How does it work out hauling the element around? You like it? It is a good option for hauling?

It's our 'mini suv' !!!
Even at the low-end, it has all kinds of bells/whistles. The back seats flip up against the side...both bikes fit w/o removing wheels etc. Easy wipe out (no carpet) floors. Fits 4 adult bodies no-problem.

DH wishes it had a corvette engine...but, it's easier on the wallet to fill-up than his toys!

Honda stopped telling folks that the Element can be towed 4-wheels-on-the-ground: so we were apprehensive (understatement) at first. Just follow the instructions from 2005 manual (for towing an automatic)...and it follows along like a champ. It's a keeper.

Those are interesting litte vehicles, the element. I havent seen the inside of one, but they are very cute. I bet they do make a good tow vehicle.
