    • Never heard of the tree house.¬† I wonder who wrote the ins policy on that one?
    • Makes sense now! I was looking for who you were referencing! I love good self deprecating humor, thanks for that! (Even if you had to explain it to one who sees less fun here than we used to have) ¬† ¬† ¬†
    • Like others have said, stay longer and drive less.¬† 4000 miles a month is 200 miles a¬†day, assuming you take weekends off to catch up on laundry and housework.¬† It's being behind the wheel¬†4 hours a¬†day at an average speed of¬†50 MPH, a reasonable estimate if you¬†include¬†fuel and rest stops.¬† Add an hour at each end to check into a campground, make and break camp and you're approaching the equivalent of a full time job just getting from one place to another. If I wanted to spend that much time driving¬†I'd look at becoming an over the road trucker and let the company¬†cover¬†the fuel costs and pay¬†me a little for my time. Back in the 1990s I worked at a job that required fulltime hours plus being on call 24/7.¬† I negotiated a deal where I would do that for 3¬†months at a time, then take a month off to decompress.¬† No one understood¬†how I could afford to vacation 3 months out of the¬†year¬†until I pointed out living in my RV meant I didn't have a monthly mortgage payment and I was merely trading¬†one¬†expense (RV park rent) for another (free or low cost camping¬†and fuel).¬† I was living in an RV park where the managers were fulltimers¬†taking a hiatus from being on the road so they understood what I was doing.¬† They rented my space to overnighters while I was gone and¬†made sure the¬†space was available when I returned. I didn't RV every time I got the month off, twice I caught the right side of currency fluctuations and at the last minute put the rig into low cost storage and spent the time¬†exploring Australia, living like a king at pauper prices.¬† Then I watched my pennies for the next 3 months while¬†I paid off the credit cards and was ready to take my next month¬†off. Vacation mode is very different than extended mode RVing or fulltiming.
