Thumbs up Hi there!

We are Keith and Jill Sharkey and just bought a 99 25' Safari from a very nice couple in western Washington. We have lived in Port Angeles since 1997. Prior to that we were in Richmond Beach, a north Seattle suburb for about 25 years. We raised a family there while Keith worked for Pacific Northwest Bell, which became US WEST and later Qwest.

We plan to use our trailer for snowbirding in Arizona during Washington's "monsoon" season. We owned a 1977 30' Argosy trailer in the early 1980's so we feel like we are coming back.

We are interested in the Wally Byam Caravan Club, but don't know much about it. We would appreciate those of you who might be members of the Washington club dropping us a note. Our email is

Welcome to the forums and congratulations on the "new" trailer.

You should also check out the Four Corners Unit of the WBCCI since you will be spending some time in Arizona. We have a couple of great rallies planned for this winter and you are always welcome to join us.

Keith and Jill, welcome from Edmonds! Keep an eye out for info on forums rallies in the Northwest area (mostly in Spring/Summer, although we just had a rally at Beverly Beach, OR at the end of September). Congrats on the "new" Safari!

Welcome. Congratulations on your new purchase. You live in a beautiful area of the country.

The Four Corners Unit is holding a New Years event in AZ if you are in that area around that time.

The PNW has a ton of Forums members who are very active and a lot of fun.

There is also very active WBCCI clubs in the same areas.

Hope to see you out camping. We hit the Deception Pass area and along the WA/OR coasts from time to time.

Welcome to the forums. I'm still looking for my first trailer. It's a little more difficult than I first thought but I'm confident. Hope to come visit the pacific north west sometime in the future.
