Can't wait for the kids spring break coming soon. Our plan is to Leave from Denver head to Carlsbad NM then over to San Antonio to Austin then up through Amarillo then back to Denver. About 2000 miles in all.

That sounds great, I'm glad I'm not the only one planning a trip with the fuel price prediction. I live in Virginia and we are planning a trip to California and then to Oregon. Taking the southern route out to Cal. and the the northern route back to Virginia. I only get about 11 to 12 miles per gal towing so we are watching the price now, hope things get back down a little, would be alot easier on the pocket book.

About fuel I think of it this way. This trip will cost roughly $800 in Diesel. What would I spend on lodging for 7 days for a family of 5? Plus other expenses. We have our own bed no one else has ever slept in which is huge. We can go as far or as short as we want each day. We can take a side road and explore something new.

Of course there are the opponents that say well you spent xxx amount of dollars an a RV. My response is - this is my vacation home on wheels. I'd rather have the choice to drive anywhere we want rather than a vacation home/cabin that never moves.

Ditto that tater!

We are not saving money overall, but the intangibles are many and hard to put a price on!

We'll be driving to Florida this summer and it's I think it's about 4k miles round trip. I'd much rather drive out RV than fly! Plus we get to pick up a couple cousins along the way...the kids are going to have a blast!

Heading To FL in a few weeks two couples. As we drive the 1300 miles down, we intend to stop at various sites along the way. Airfares for the same dates will cost us 350 round trip per ticket...AROUND 1400 for the four, oh and baggage and lest me forget the little pup that will be joining us. Add lodging ...I think we still are making out on the deal.

Its the life we choose.

I wouldn't expect the price of gas to go down in California. According to the local news here expect the price to be close to $5 per gallon by Memorial Day or summer.

Yesterday it was $4.15 at Costco and $4.39 at the station I usually go to. Gas prices jumped 10 cents (or more) over night less than a week ago.

As long as I can afford to camp I will be using my travel trailer. On my modest income things add up fast but usually are still do-able with planning. I'm putting my budget back on a diet again.
