fortunately not us. I got the notification from an rv forum I am on so thought I would post it for anyone that happened across my blog and maybe is heading in that direction. We won't officially be traveling until June at the earliest as far as taking the rig and such. We do lots of mini day/weekend trips in the car that I think I just sold so those trips will be slowing down for a bit too I am thinking.
