The Gas Price Blues
| As prices approach $4 per gallon we all feel the pain but we have a plan for you. Each RVing season you have only a certain number of days that you can vacation. Why not go on less trips but-- make each trip longer. If instead of going for 6 weekends, you go for 3 mini-vacations of 4 days each your cost of gas is cut in 1/2. You also reduce the miles on your rig so maintenance and wear and tear are also less. You are less rushed, spend less time traveling and you come home more relaxed and ready to really be productive. If you really want to be relaxed treat yourself to a massage at our great Wine Country Day Spa.|
There are also a number of fuel finder computer program that track daily prices that can guide you to the station with the best fuel price. Give this Google Gadget a try or find an app online for your iPhone or Android. RVing is still one of the best travel buys for your buck and you meet the nicest people.
