A sunny hello to all!

As a new member & new A/S owner, I wanted to say hello and thank all of those who make this site possible. I've just bought an 1986 Sovereign 29' after years as a winniebagan. The TT's in good shape mechanically but the interior looked like it was Never cleaned. I yanked out the carpet and pad and scrubbed everything with SHOCK! cleaner. I sealed the floor with Kilz and will start laying pergo tomorrow.

The last few days have been distracting as I watched Hurricane John blow across our place in Loreto, Baja Sur. All seems to have turned out well and the area needed (some) rain. Attached is a pix from the Zaragosa side of the southern Loreto arroyo... nearly full BEFORE the hurricane hit! Our place is in the trees to the right.

Home base is in Reno NV USA. Would enjoy hearing from nearby members or those in Baja.
