Richard, good for you and the wife! Yes, many of us purchased ETI builds because we want to go-go-go! I know I don't make any terrific memories sitting on the coach. Oh the future places you'll see and memories you'll make once you're an owner.
I too would like to pay it forward. But, if you want to check things out yourself... I think you could spend days on the "It's Friday" thread. Great explanations, beautiful pictures and you can just feel the owners excitement.
