Came across this new board while thumbing through the 'Best of...' as I do almost daily. My congrats to the originator.....I like the idea and what I have read here so far. I hope that this will be a place where retirees present and soon-to-be can exchange information without a lot of partisan political baggage. I appreciate that I can generate a lot of the latter without breathing hard, but I will try to reserve that for PA. I see that a lot of old friends are already posting here.

I have followed the time-share and RV conversation with great interest. I have never really considered purchasing a time-share. I think that there are plenty of reasonable 2-4 week rentals in various places to keep me interested for a very long time. Seems more cost effective to me. Then again, I have a fairly short attention span.

Of all the continents in the world that I have seen the least of, my own United States tops the list. Most everywhere in the US I've been, I've enjoyed. When Deb and I have a couple of weeks to spare (granted infrequently), it has been our practice to buy a plane ticket to somewhere we haven't been, rent a car and head off into the wild blue yonder. We have never failed to have great vacations utilizing this method. As a matter of fact, it is a favored way of seeing most anywhere in the world.

Anyways, I've always wanted to buy a land-yacht and to go cruising the blue highways of my native land for months on end. This, however, does not much appeal to the Little Woman. Her take on the whole matter is as follows: 'You can buy an RV if you want, but you know how it pisses you off to be stuck behind one of those 'geezer morons' on a winding two-lane road..... You can have an RV if you want, and I'll even agree to travel with you in this harebrained manner as long as we can stay in a nice clean motel every night'. !

My sainted mother might have thought more or less the same way.


Hey Jimbo!
Very glad to see you here!
