In CA now some stations have the price of Diesel less than the price of regular. It's still high ($3.91) but cheaper than a gasser. When we get to Summer, Diesel will go back up because the demand for Regular goes up.

Being a Canadian, I could go on about the rules and regulations
limiting our travel.
Love to travel and waited until retirement to be able to spend
winters in a warm climate.

Fuel prices in Canada are a big reason to park the MH for the
six months at home.

having idiot neighbors who asked why did you buy that big thing? Then after i traveled around the US they asked me how long was my rig going to be parked in front of my house? We have a 72 hr rule. I have since moved. In response to he question I finally said to her "when you decide to mind your own business" The expression was priceless. They finally moved before I sold my house. Bust she was known as the neighborhood busy body. Oh and those dam bugs!

Diesel has been about $4.00 per gallon for several years, so I have come to terms with it. As a full timer, I do have the luxury of no schedule, so my personal rule is keep the driving to a minimum. I traveled the west coast 2 years ago from Chula Vista in southern Cali to Seattle in 3 1/2 months driving less than 150 miles per week! It was the best trip I ever did.

That said, I am currently in Albuquerque and drove it in 3 weeks from Daytona Beach.

barking dogs

Bekken6 and anyone else who has problems with barking dogs (whether your own or neighbors). I've used these over the years from puppy on up. Works great. From my perspective (on our 3rd lab), it does not take the place of proper training but will give you some respite from all the yapping.

Grouchy neighbors.... Seriously if you don't like dogs or children you need to find a 55 and older campgrounds that prohibits pets. I agree that some families are more vocal than others however most of the time they are just having a good time. Isn't that what camping is all about? I think it's a wonderful way for both young and old families to spend quality time together and thus I overlook the minor disruptions as they are few and far between. Needless to say...I would not put dogs and kids at the top of my worst list.

Gas prices are the worst but 90% of our camping is withing 200 miles of home so it's not so bad.

Barking, yappy dogs. Main reason we camp/boondock as far from others as we can. Would never consider going to a RV park unless the destination was the reason or we needed a place for overnight when traveling.

Pulling back into the driveway at the S&B. Oh yes, and the time we drove through LA, those roads are the worst I've ever driven... never again.
