"I'd like to buy a really nice van, like a Toyota Sienna, and just drive wherever I wanted to, stay in nice hotels and eat at good restaurants. I am over traveling on the cheap. I did quite a bit of it when I was young. At this point in my life if I have to travel cheaply I'd just as soon stay home. "


None of those things requires you to be "wealthy" or win a lottery.

They do require judicious decisions made at various times in your life -
and going back in time is unfortunately not a valid option. But really
living well just does not require tremendous multi-million dollar net
worth or several hundred dollar a year income.

I have not seen any indication that past Presidents had to watch their spending
after they were no longer President.
I have seen some past-governors put in jail - but Presidents?
