    Yepee saw gas for 3.61 today here in Alabama. Never thought I would be glad to see gas at 3.61 but when thinking 4 dollars will park you 3.61 looks good.

    Thank You, tnarvs. Why do you call yourself a bum? I am glad to know that, if and when I decide to stay in TN, I could have someone that could help me out. Where is Crossville? I have never been thru that area.

    Hollis, are you saying tnarvs is a Nudist? Maybe I should keep clear of him. Nudist are very strange people. I will not say what I really feel about them on here. It would get me abolished for sure.

    You need to "put a pencil to it." For short trips, the RV is gonna cost you. The longer the trip the more you will save with the RV. Three years ago we took a month long trip to South Dakota, gas was $4 per gallon. We burnt $1500 worth! Figure motel fees for that many nights vs campground fees, all meals would be in restaurants, air fares, car rental, etc. We actually saved money going in the RV and seeing more of the USA. Plus, what kind of value can you put in sleeping in your own bed, using your own bathroom and not carrying luggage in and out of motels? When you are figuring the motel cost, don't forget all the fees that don't get advertised with the price, city tax, state tax, occupancy tax, etc. That's usually another $10 to $12 per night!

    Being something that is considered a prime commodity and a resource, just means that price are to jack up without the people having any control over.

    Gone were the days when you would contemplate about buying a ride and going on an RV because it would cost less than an already built house and its maintenance because surely, if you are going RV full time, it would be no easy think to sustain.

    Midone, just trying to figure out if you are a rver or just against rving. Do welcome your opinions. If you are approching rvs as saving money you may be dissapointed. We have rved for 45yrs and we can not place a money value we have enjoyed as a family and now as just me and the better half. It has to be something you enjoy. Yes if I had all the dollars spent on camping I could buy a condo for sure but then I would be in one place or doing the swap thing. Rving is just a way of life each has to decide for themselves.

    I agree with Nash, RVing is a way of life. Not for everyone, but everyone that does are great people.

    Butch I drove 50 miles to get it, around here it is still $3.66 and up. I think it was worth the trip, the grand son like to ride in my truck so we just took a field trip with him.
