As others have mentioned, we puchased our AS late in the year and have yet to pull it anywhere. In fact, the dealer is storing it for us for the winter - will it EVER END??? For several years, we boated on the Great Lakes so we have an idea of what it will be like - if spring ever gets around to coming. We have several trips already planned starting in May. We know what we'll do with much of our time - we'll read a lot of books, we'll visit museums and historic sites all over the country. We've seen much of Europe over the years, having traveled there too many times to keep track. Now, it's time to see our own country - therefore, the AS. Retirement starts on April 1st but we'll both have part time jobs to return to so we will not be full timers. But, we will travel extensively - four-five nights on extended week ends with several two or three week jaunts during the year. We have several states listed as our must sees - Virginia, North Carolina, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Utah, New England, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Ohio. Once they have been visited, then we'll take a look at the others. Many we will visit while heading for the above list - so I think we're covered for the next few years. We are so excited about getting started it's difficult to envision all the things we want to do. We've purchased the Tropics Room, the screened-in porch that extends the living space of the AS. Our list grows daily as we read about the places to see and visit in the books we've purchased. We look forward to historical sites and visiting with other RVers in the campgrounds. We're expecially looking forward to visiting with AS folks - comparing notes and comparing "aluminum beauties." We look forward to campfires and evenings of sharing experiences, travel stories and must see sites. We are in the process of re-upholstering the interior of our AS. Then we'll always have something different to show folks that come by and wish to see our AS. We don't want ours to look like all other Ocean Breezes. Hope to see you "down the road."

The DW and I just enjoy resting, bicycling, lounging on the beach, eating at local restaurants and touring the local sites especially when in Topsail State Park in Florida.

What we enjoy is waking up when we feel like it, walking and visiting with the other RV'ers. During the summer we enjoy the pool and hot tub. Basically, just doing a lot of nothing but enjoying our AS.

Now, if we are on our annual 3 month outting with the AS we have a different agenda but we still have our down time.

As you get some experience cooking over a fire you'll hardly want to cook over a propane stove again. The key is to have a good spread of hot coals to cook over, all the flame does is blacken your pots and all. I believe using cast iron is best, it's always been my favorite to use, cast iron skillet and a dutch oven is the way to go.

Setting around the fire at the end of the day is my favorite part of camping. It takes me back to when I was a boy setting around with my dad and friends. It's almost a religious experince for me, like as though I'm in Church.
