Vickifool -- thinking about the RV, myownself Mrs. Goofy and I bought a used RV in 2000, it was a 1996 and we paid about half the "new" price. A 36 foot diesel pusher. Here's a pic: http://members.aol.com/goofyhoofy/TheBus1.jpgWe have not used it as much as we thought we would, but that is mostly because Mrs. Goofy got bored sitting around with me and went back to work.We did do a 5 month coast to coast (east to west) coast to coast (north to south) cross country trip which was FABULOUS, and we have done several shorter versions - one touring the South for 6 weeks (MI, AL, AR, FL, etc.) and others, but now we only get out for a couple weeks each summer, one week at Thanksgiving to go to PA to the folks house, and maybe a weekend or two.Still, we wouldn't give it up for anything. It is an expensive hobby, however. We figure $7,000 a year in depreciation, $50/mo for "storage", and another $1,000 a year for maintenance - and that doesn't include campground fees, food, etc.But it's great fun, and it's how we choose to do it. Different strokes, and all that. I know some friends have a money-pit they call "a boat" (maybe I have that vice versa) and that's what they like, so what the hey!
