I started this post "Cold Feet " one month ago, well things have changed since then-- today we put a deposit down and ordered a 2014 30FT Flying Cloud. Since this is our first RV of any kind I would say after looking for many a year and reading this forum, the time was right and we are in. As my spouse said it was time to start a new adventure.

The BBC in the UK had a TV show some years back titled, Things I wish I'd known when I was twenty. Older, in their 60's and up, people were talking about their lives and what they had learned and wanted to pass on.

One thing that stuck out was that the older the person was, the more often they said "Take more risks" or "I wish I'd taken more risks".

That has always stuck with me. We're still younger, but I am already kicking myself for not having started this adventure earlier in life.

That makes absolutely no sense to me! At this stage in my life, I'm amazed that I survived all the risks I took back then!

If I could give advice to my younger self, it would be: "Make sure you get the rewards commensurate with the risks you take." In other words, take risks in pursuit of a goal, not just risks for the sake of thrill-seeking.
