well I know I have not checked in as much as I should, but its been 2 years since I retired and in that time I have been to all but 8 states. Put over 40,000 miles on my 5th wheel and tomorrow starts a new adventure.

leaving in the morning to start the Adventure van road trip.
started off by going to Mt Hood, then Catfish Junction, and then Salt lake Utna here's the whole trip

I'll post some more pic as the trip developed but this first part will be for the next 2weeks

ok here are some pic's of the first stop at Hood river Adventure Van expo. this show was cool because they let your customers come out and camp with you, so got to show off the van and then party with the customers at night... talk about a win-win

so the next show was in Salt Lake City but I'm not going to waste your time with that one as you saw the setup at the first on, but after it was over, I went to Montrose Co.

so a good friend of mine called why I was on the road, told me he had to have a kidney trance plant... he 39 years old. and his are working at 12% so as soon as the show was over instead of going home, I headed to his place as I know he would have some things to button up, well good thing I did as he's has zero energy, so I finished up plywood the roof on the shop he is building on his property

the other pic's are just some of the views I had on the road

Nice!

Are you building vans now or just repping yours?
No, my brother-in-law is the owner of RB Compointes. they build vans,

they ask me to drive to the shows, as he is down 10 employees, (you know sitting at home collecting a check)
I do the setup, they fly in the sales guys, the shows are only on weekends so during the week I fish or golf,

Sounds like a great life!
Good for you, sounds like you’ve got things figured out.
