Hi, Elise!

I am semi-retired [an educator] from MO. DH and I had an RV for a while, but health concerns caused us to downsize to a fifth wheel that stays put in a private RV park in Branson. Within the past year or so, I decided that I might be able to pull a smallish travel trailer so that we could go other places, and I am pretty fair at it, if I do say so myself. However, we have discovered it is best that they are pull thru sites [LOL].

Welcome! This is a great group!

My name is Tammy and I live in SW Missouri.

I too am an ER nurse and house supervisor, now retired, from MN. outside the Twin Cities. I am a winter Texan and am glad to be even though it's been a cool winter here. We love traveling in our RV wherever the path shall go. We have 3 kids and 3 granddaughters.
Glad you are with us and good to know we have another nurse on board!


Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

Welcome Elise! Yep, we do have our share of nurses on this team. I'm a retired RN in North Dakota. My DH and I don't own an RV, just a camping trailer, but they let me play here anyway.

I am stronger than the food.

I am not that person any more.

Good Morning Elise!
Already I see we have something in common - we are both MI residents! My husband and I live in a Manufacture Home Park in Zeeland during our summer months. We are Snowbirds in the winter. Ten years ago my DH had serious heart attack followed by Quadruple bypass surgery. After that, I have no desire to have him shovel snow so we leave around the end of Oct and come back in April. We also have other nurses amongst the team, either still working or retired so I will enjoy your conversations! Welcome to our active little team, we all love it here. So come and post often.
