Good morning Michael

Sorry I just saw your friend request.

Pleasure discussing your new proposed adventure, with you. Motorhome / trailer, enabling you to travel, explore without the time constraints of getting to airports, hotels or back "home" will open up paths you might have never known. May these paths bring you to unfound wonders.
