If the trailer is appropriate size and you mostly desire the parks and such hey wagons hooo and enjoy the trips. If you want to also do city type stuff with museums and such perhaps a B or Cmini may be your cup of cocoa.



Pining for stuff well makes it sweeter when it arrives, just having stuff given to ya, never happened to me but makes me feel that the stuff is generally not valued as much and therefore not enjoyed as much. There is a dimension of satisfaction that gets attached to things when they were worked towards and achieved, could be my envious streak or could be real dunno!



Travel in comfort and carefully, get a good tow hitch set up, anti sway weights all correct etc. In these days of camera's make it such that you can see what ya need to see for backing up and such, will make things much easier.


In my heavy boating days, peak season etc, I had a tow ball put on the front bumper to ease the launching and retrieval of the boat, cannot tell you how much easier and faster it made the process. Kept the rear engine higher and dryer on the ramp too! Though the trailer did have a tongue extension we stopped needing to use it most of the time.


As stated by the above post, the nitty gritty of the hobby are an important aspect to consider for better enjoyment and budgeting evaluations. As they say the God is in the details of how stuff is done, and the devil easy to spot in that area.

Wanting my ex husband was unimaginably more fun than having him.

So if you see a guy looking around wondering why his ears are burning ask him if he knows a Nancy.

Wanting to retire and go full time is not more fun now, than it will be when I can do it.

outdoorplay, not sure if you still follow this thread, but where were you that rented you out that mountain bike? Sweet GT. I used to have a GT Avalanche (put front suspension on it only). I also had a kilerV900 which I polished out the frame and had a buddy paint the rockshox, and got new stickers. I would constantly get asked about my blue shocks back in the day of the gold rockshox.

I wanted to get back into mountain biking, especially when I am full timing but bikes go for a LOT of money now. My Killer V and avalance were $700 each back in the early 90s. Came with good Shimano gear LX/XT mostly.

It's all about how you see life. Commitments are self-made prisons.

There is only one thing in life that you have to look forward to and that is you're going to die.

Enjoy your lives!

What? Well, here I was just now looking forward to a good night's sleep but you say I'm going to die instead? Kind of puts a damper on the weekend.

Think I'll follow a rather more upbeat philosophy. Just sitting around waiting to die doesn't sound like much fun to me, but you go ahead.
