Is 'Frugal Retirement' Our New Buzz Phrase?
Of the tips given in this article, two of which I do not subscribe. They suggest renting an RV, which makes sense if you only use an RV a few weeks a year. We own an RV , a 22 foot trailer which we have parked permanently at a family-owned recreational property near a navigable river and we have kayaks and a john boat which we use often.
So our boat isn't the expensive cabin cruiser type, but we have picnics/pleasure trips often. The suggestion that "boats are things that friends own" seems to me to be encouraging freeloading!
It adds a lot of pleasure to our life and as everything is paid for and we don't have to pay any fees....it is free.
