FMCA membership number: F401147 (we joined in 2008)
Our current motorhome:
A 1994 Fleetwood Bounder 34J
Three words that best describe our motorhome:
Lots of fun
We decided to buy a motorhome because:
We wanted our cat, JJ, to go with us. It’s the truth.
The best thing about our motorhome:
We can go and stop as we like. Having JJ with us.
Other motorhomes we’ve owned:
Nina retired from Dow Brands after 31 years. I (Jim) retired from the U.S. Navy after 20 years. We owned our own truck and hauled cargo in all lower 48 states and Canada.
We have six children, 10 grandchildren and 11 great grand kids.
We travel in our motorhome:
Approximately six to seven months of the year. When we’re not motorhoming, we’re at home doing projects around the house.
Our favorite motorhoming destinations:
We have seen and been to many places. A favorite would be hard to say.
Our all-time favorite motorhome trip or motorhoming memory:
Mount Rushmore always comes up first.
Our “dream” motorhome trip:
Start at home, go south to Florida, get on Interstate 10 and head to California.
Our worst motorhoming experience:
Being stuck after an all-night rain. Coach-Net pulled us out. It rained so hard we felt the coach sinking. The folks at the campground said we had 6 inches of rain overnight.
Our motorhoming pet peeve:
Something about motorhoming that we know now but did NOT know when we started:
We knew nothing about motorhoming, and we are still learning.
When driving a motorhome, the most important thing to remember is:
Our advice for other motorhome owners:
Let your conscience be your guide.
Our hobbies are:
We like to sightsee, and walk if we can sit some.
One of the nicest was Brookville, Ohio, KOA.
When motorhomers visit our state or hometown, they should be sure to see:
Indianapolis Motor Speedway Indianapolis 500 Hall of Fame Museum
Items that we always keep in our motorhome’s refrigerator while traveling:
Water, coke and orange juice. I am diabetic, so OJ is a must.
Behind our motorhome, we tow: A 2009 Saturn Vue
Pets that travel with us: JJ Dachshund, 15 pounds of strong will
