Unfortunately the RV's in 'storage.' Costs about 75 cents per mile (on average) to drive that huge hunk of rolling Condo.
Did some serious thinking about driving over to Jellystone Park and spending a couple of weeks fishing/sight seeing/etc. Got close to the time to go date last September and did some $$$$$ calculations and I would have spent somewhere around $1,500 to $1,700 just for Petrol
. Plus RV Park fees, etc., and etc.
Self said to Self .... for that kind of money you've got a hell of a lot of 'Boy Toy' options. One was a 8wt Gary Anderson (ACR) spey rod (Salmon fishing) and a (GOD I ALWAYS WANTED ONE OF THESE!) 'Mt. Rainier' anti-reverse reels (line/et. al.) Found both of what I wanted on the SpeyPages 'classifieds.' $610'ish for both. That amount of $$ (gas tank to Jellystone) wouldn't have even gotten me there.
Monies already 'allocated,' hell ... at 70 .... what do you really "need?" Well, continued good health would be OK by me.
Me thinks 'closing up the house' and going over to Brookings, Oregon for all of December/January has a good ring to same. Hummm, maybe November (their Salmon run) and December (first of the Winter run Steelhead) might be a better option.
Time to pull out the note pad and take/make notes/research.... me thinks.
