I had my 80th birthday on 4/4 and a stroke on 4/12 so I have sold my camper. I was at the hosp.in 30 min and CT immediately to insure no brain bleed then the anti stroke meds 2 days in ICU to monitor bleeding and am fully recovered except finger tips on right hand are tingling and a small section of my lower lip is also. That is all I have left from a total right side stroke. God is good. I will still look around once and a while but I am done camping. Thanks for a good forum.

Sorry you had to sell your camper due to your stroke. There is life after a stroke. I had a full left side stroke about 4 years ago about 5 in the morning. My wife recognized it immediately, gave me an aspirin to chew, and called 911. EMS was there in about 15 minutes and transported me to the hospital. By the time we arrived at the hospital, I was feeling normal. Dr. could find nothing wrong at all except brain scan showed a small area. There were no after effects at all. You are right. God is good!

I am 82 now and have given up traveling via RV but still use our rig at a family owned campground. Gave up because it was becoming too much effort to set up, take down etc. We have had many, many years traveling via RVs of different sorts and am thankful for the opportunities we have had. One side benefit of stopping traveling and pulling the trailer is that I no longer needed the big CTD truck in my signature. Now I tool around in a beautiful 2019 Ram 1500 Limited with the 5.7L Hemi and full air ride suspension. I love this truck almost as much as the last one! [emoticon]

Very glad to hear the positive outcomes for both of you.

ret usn, fair winds and following seas shipmate!

Barney, you have been a wealth of information, as well as font of wisdom, not to mention a great example of decorum.

You guys are perfect examples of what draws me here. Happy Camping!

Oh yeah, on edit: Barney, very nice ride!!

Good to hear you recovered quickly from your stroke and will continue to enjoy life!
We also had to make the same decision for similar reasons, but like Barney S we will still be able to enjoy our rig parked in Florida. Now on to the next chapters of our lives!

Sorry to hear that.
BUT.....
Your RVing experience is still valuable to the website. No reason to leave.

First off, Thank you for your service to our country. I'm glad you had no serious lasting affects from the stroke and you are doing well.
As mentioned earlier, I hope you stick around and offer your experience to the newbies that are still discovering the RV world.
I know that over the last 12 years I have learned so much from you guys and I have shared a lot of what I've learned with friends and strangers we've met at the campgrounds.
Best of luck for the next chapter.
