I will tell you if you like wonderful sites, the Corp has some of the best. Unfortunately they are not everywhere but many are in the winter warm south.
This is only a beginning, there are more opportunities in other classes of parks.
I just wanted to say that I really appreciate and enjoy reading all of your posts. I tend to think that when one gets determined enough, they can do anything. When I worked at the RV manufacturer, we had an 80 year old gentleman who bought a smaller 5th wheel because he wanted to travel as a carpenter donating his time to religious organizations that would give me a free camping spot. His children were horrified but he got his trailer, picked it up and we heard from him now and then. He did once call because he had jammed his slide, opened it into a high area of dirt, but the tech walked him through it. Thank you for the encouragement, helpful hints, etc. that you pass on at the forum as I know the dedication and time that it takes.
