We will be on the road! Life is too short. Don't know how many years we have left! We will cut back on other items if need be. Maybe not eat out, maybe not buy new clothes, maybe not buy more stuff for house or grandkids. There are lots of things we can do without, but traveling is first on our bucket list!

The last time fuel prices went up I freely took my little / used / paid for /, Travel Trailer out to the campgounds (That were mostly empty) and waved at all the campers/people that were staying at home because they could only afford the payments and not the gas to go anywhere.

I may stay closer to home but, I have no plans to make any big changes. Extra bucks for gas it a drag but, not a deal breaker for me. I will cut back on something else first.

For gods sake, I spend 150 bucks a month on satellite TV and hardly ever watch it ! I will find a cheaper way to get TV before I give up on camping.

maybe the bright side of high gas prices is that it will be easier to get a camping spot!!!!

My philosophy, which has worked well is "never start a hobby you can't afford in the long term".


This, exactly. I'm hoping for more spots available.

I went down to FL already this year and just today came back from a week in Myrtle Beach. When I reached Myrtle diesel was $4.76, I filled up. During the week it went up to $4.96 and was $4.85 when I left today. I will keep going as its what I do.

I was checking prices on Gas Buddy yesterday for the Bushnell, FL area. Most stations were in the $4.19-$4.29 range for regular, but checking again this morning most of the same stations are down to $3.91-$3.99.

If you are coming to California stop at the last fuel station before entering the state and top off to the max.

We are getting ready to leave for a month long trip through Utah, Arizona and points beyond in under 2 weeks. My wife asked if we were still going with the gas prices being what they are. I told her that it only adds a couple of hundred dollars to the trip. If I can't afford that, it is time to hand up the truck keys and sell the TT.
