I'm sure they are I've seen some on RV shows on the travel channel.
But do you know how much these cost.
Not to mention a second vehicle to tow and a big gasoline bill

Well, I more or less agree with this, but when a one letter difference makes a whole different word, with a completely different meaning, and especially when it is used in a typically boastful, arrogant sentence, I think we have ignorance showing, not misspellings.

Anyhow, Pinhead, I appreciate your help.

I have traveled in RVs and had relatives who were permanent RV gypsies.
Different strokes I guess..........

Hey don't drag me into this spelling bee!

Seriously, I'm dyslexic, no really, my posts should be all the proof I need. Apologize for my butchery of the English language, I'm thinking about downloading that spell checker.

Thanks for the excerpt and link, Martha -- this is exactly the kind of thing I'm considering a little way "down the road" -- no pun intended.

I can't wait to look in the mirror,
cause I get better lookin' each day.

Some folks think that I'm egotistical.
Hell, I don't even know what that means.
But I think it has something to do with the way
that I fill out my skintight blue jeans.

Re: many paths to ER (or, in the retirement house there are many rooms)

I think that it would be fun to try that lifestyle for awhile and see the country and meet some great people. I'm not sure how long I would want to do it for though. Who knows, maybe the RV'ing bug would hit and it would be my dream retirement or maybe I would tire of it quickly. That is one of the reasons that I would like to retire. There are so many places to see and so many things to try!!!
