I do not know what has happened, but America has changed. Could it be because more than 1 in 10 Americans is currently taking psychoactive drugs? And those are just the "legal" ones with a prescription. I dunno. "Strange Days, Indeed".
Know what you mean, pulling out of a campground today I stopped at the exit to throw trash in the dumpster. The knucklehead behind me beeps his horn and says hurry up, I have to be somewhere!

I see people driving like idiots every day. Two days ago I was sitting at a red light. When it turned green I crossed the intersection and proceeded. The line in the oncoming left turn lane was long. So some woman decided that she wasn't going to wait in that long line. crossed the double yellow and proceeded to drive down the wrong side of the road and make her own "left turn lane".

Since I was driving the car I was able to squeeze by her. Had I been driving the MH she would have met 8 tons of "you shouldn't have done that".

As it was, she and her passenger thought it was a big joke. They were just laughing away. I see this kind of driving every single day. Maybe it is just the South?

Got a new one. TODAY I saw a guy riding a liquorcycle (No license, No Plates, No Insurance required. Max speed MAYBE 40-45 mph) on the INTERSTATE.

Am I still on the same planet that I was born on?

We fit into the grey hair club( I do Linda not). I am not sure what your visitor meant but the most important thing is you have time with your family and can take them places that a lot of families will never get to see.
I would not waste a moment of thought on the visitor, I would enjoy what and who I have the time to spend with.

When DW and I got our first A about 7 years ago we to did so at the sake of upgrading our brick & sticks home. Heck, we were always looking for some way to get out of Dodge as often as possible anyways and we thought the MH would make a nice compromise. My son says to me "What, Don't you and Barb, DW, ever want to retire"! At this time I was 50. Since my dad dropped dead at 46 bowling, I know to well that life can be too too short, which is what I told him. Neither of us have regretted getting into the lifestyle and can only look forward to expanding our horizons, getting to retirement, and possibly join the full time crowd. This country is to damn big and beautiful not to want to travel and explore as many destinations as possible.

Well, Congratulations!!! I think it is wonderful that young family's travel together and spend really quality time together( whatever you choose to travel in). We travel with our children when we were young or should I say when they were young,only had a auto back then, now we have a house on wheels and the family never has time to go with us. So you go and enjoy yourself and best of luck to you !!

I didn't really know what to say... I mustered something about easier to travel with the kids... etc. Luckily my son came running over to show me a giant caterpillar he "captured" and I was able to duck off from this guy.

I thought about his comments all day after that... can't really figure out what he was trying to say.

Things that make you go.. [moderator edit]
Say: "I worked darn hard for it. How did you get yours?"

Hopefully, He will the realize that it is NONE of his business.
