I've always wanted to do that too, CG. Whenever my daughters and I are out on a road trip and we see folks in motor homes or pulling travel trailers, I dream of being able to just take off and go....pull into campsites wherever and whenever, or just off road. But I would have to be home to see my grandson's baseball games too, so unless I clone myself it will only be a dream. LOL

My traveling days are over. Having crossed the country a few times, taken side trips to see parts of America most folks never get to see, I am now content to stay at home surrounded by my children. I have one grandchild in particular that I really want to see grow up. He is my last grandchild. From here on in, it will be all great grandchildren. I already have six greats, but the family is getting ready to explode the population again. There are more than five grandkids that are at marriageable age. I find it hard to believe that I have created so many off-springs from just five children. Time for me to rest and relax.

THAT is what I would love to do!
If I could just get Mister K on board...
My ideal is either a View Profile or and R-Pod
Travel around the country in the RV and see as much as we can, while we can!
We're not on the this Earth forever, I want to make the most of out time, especially with our good health still entact.

Yupper, me too, but, and that's a big butt...
the price is WOW! WAY up there!
The depreciation on this is minimal, even
buying it used is an arm & a leg! unless of course
you buy used, and I mean very old RV, almost 10 years old.
The technology in the past 5 years or less makes the units
so much better and efficient, but HOWDY DOWDY!
We could buy a condo at the beach for that kinda moolah
