Hi, knjobrien5,

I was a paramedic for 10 years in south GA, so I know where you're coming from. Welcome to the forums. This is a tough hobby and interest on a FF/paramedic's salary, so I wish you the best.

Welcome. My Argosy is from New Mexico, so sort of feel a connection there. I'm an R.N. so there's another. Don't know when you would have time to write, but try to when you can. We also love pictures here on the forum.

What an incredibly warm welcome.

I have been snooping around the forum since this summer when Our trailer was gifted to us by God in a very neat way.

Within a month of getting it we had her up and moving down the road to nearby Arizona and Utah. Most everything is original and worked with just a little bit of cleaning and tinkering.

The next big project is replacing all the plumbing rather than having all the repairs that were done over the years.

This Forum has been a wealth of information so far.

I have posted some pictures and will be putting more up as time permits.

Thanks again everyone.
