« Big Day For Linda - Huge! | Main | Strange Start To LOW »

Wednesday, August 23, 2006


Hi Howard & Linda, I have an assignment for you. It will be an easy one. As you attend your second LOW, if you and Linda could think about what classes might be most important for an experienced (weedend RVer) but one who has not done a lot of extended travel and who is a wannabe fulltimer. Should both of us attend the sames classes, or should we attend some together and some separate to get the most bang for the buck? I really want to attend some of the repair/maintenance courses which Trudi may not want or need to attend. We are planning to attend the one next July in Idaho. Any helpful suggesstinns will be appreciated. As we get closer to next July I will definitely pick your brains about this subject in more detail. Enjoy the LOW conference.

We are future full-time RVers. It's 3 years away and we can hardly ait.

Stan, which courses to attend is always a tough one. Everyone has such different needs. Plus not all the same courses are offered at every LOW.

With that said, I recommend that ALL attendees attend Fire Safety, Weight Safety, and Tire Safety and that couples attend together. The next set of classes depends on whether you have a full-timing rig already or not. If not, obviously take the classes on the basics of RVs and choosing an RV. If you have a rig, you can concentrate more on lifestyle classes.

As for taking classes together or splitting up, Husbands and Wives tend to hear things differently. So it is best if you can attend all the same classes together. But there are so many classes that folks want to take, it's almost impossible to do that unless you have the time to attend 2 or 3 LOWs.

We can talk more specifically as the time gets closer and the schedules are finalized. :)
