New to RVing, I've never been out over Halloween. However, at home for 30 years I have developed a form of insurance which has stood me in good stead.

I buy $2.50 to $3.00 goodies for the few kids that live within several houses of me, and $1.00 candy bars for everyone else. It costs me about $20 a year. Now think about it.

Kids have grown up appreciative of that nice man who lives on the corner, gone through their teens, and off to college thinking I'm a great guy.

Their parents think I'm super, too, smile and wave, and I can't think of anything I could do which would pay higher dividends.

Older kids? They get 'em too, as long as they last. Seem to understand.

At a buck a candy bar the park I spend half my summer at you'd spend about 1,000 on candy. Different parks, different amounts.

I know the one year we passed out candy I had 5 pound bags and a big bowl my wife sat next to and I was dumping bags in the bowl dang near fast as I could open them.

Check with park management as to how many kids to expect and buy your candy at the bulk stores, Sams, Costco or Gordon Foods.
Home is where I park it!
