Why O' Why !?!?!

For those of us who have to work for a living... And for those of us who live in a climate which requires us to "tuck" our RV's in for the winter...

How badly does it suck that gas prices are below $2 and we can't take advantage...

If it weren't snowing out, with salt all over the road... I'd be driving my RV back-n-forth to work... Just cause I could with gas prices so low...

Oh well... Here's to hoping these prices hold thru the summer

I did drive my RV to work for years, but it as a 17' Type B MH with a 460 engine and back in 1988-97 when we traded it.

You missed the point, Tony, He works and doesn't have vacation time right now when the prices for gasoline are so low....and he would have to drive through a few snowy states taking 2-3 times as long to get to those sunny southern states... which all but parts of Arizona (not night times either...cold there at night) and southernmost tip of Florida I hear aren't as toasty as most would like. He is in Wisconsin... Northern state... drive through at least 4-5 states before he's even found non freezing, non snowy roads so he could drive normal speeds...

Everybody selects where they want to live and where and who they work for [except children, a spouse and soldiers] . One can move, get a better job, and go back to school.

Trust me, if mine wasn't in warranty repair hock and it wasn't in our semi perpetual rainy season I'd pull mine to the local forest every other weekend, and that's with a diesel truck.

Never imagined I'd celebrate sub $3.00 diesel.

Oh, I'm happy where I'm at... I like the seasons... Although, waking up to sub zero temperatures the past couple days isn't my most favorite part of WI.. I LOVE our State Park Campgrounds... The lakefront of Milwaukee.. the festivals.. and too many more to list off..

So, I'm happy with my location.. just wish the timing of low gas prices was better...

That's just priceless! Driving the rv to work, " just because I could".
I love that kind of stuff!
