I try to remember two rules: Don't sweat the petty stuff. Don't pet the sweaty stuff.

I always consider those coments as conversation starters. I'm retired, know it all, and have time to tell you all about it!

It's probably the same people that burn their tires running around trying to find a place they can save $.10 a gal for gas. I have found it's not difficult to improve milage by 10/15% or more just by the way I drive. That's $.40/$.60 a gal the way I figure it.

I'm trying to implement a new, personal strategy for inner peace and tranquility......

Talk less

Listen more

Ignore even more

Safe and enjoyable travels to all.

"You are an idiot, therefore your comment/opinion is invalid." Or, "Tell us how you really feel!" I am a member of a couple of Motorcycle forums. These especially have some silly people for some reason.

When I'm gasing up and someone asks what milage I get, I tell them about 28, don't tell them its the toad I'm pulling. I always get a funny look;
after that they just walk away shaking their heads.

I still spend less for gas and propane each month than I used to spend for Natural Gas and Electric.. at least moth months, May will be an exception (800 mile hike) but at the end of the year, I have mroe money than if I had a stick house.

They may not pay as much for gas as we do but if they were to go antwhere out of town they have to pay for a motel room. At the end of the day we both pay the same amount of money but we have our whole house with us and don't have to worry about who slept in the bed before us.

Of course, I get shellacked with replies like,

"Just how big is your RV's gas tank again ?!?! That one's gonna hurt"

"Good thinkin on the RV"

etc., etc.

Really people ? Are those remarks truly necessary ??

Wretched excess is just barely enough.

It is also likely your RV produced some jobs here. Nothing against the Japanese since December 7, 1941 of course. But that is a different story.
