I was just thinking of all the stuff that needs done around our seasonal site when I read your post. I'm going to put the tools away and go play frisbee with the kids.

Wow, quite a sobering thread to read this morning. I think almost everyone can relate to these stories. My MIL died of lung cancer at 51, a year later my mom was killed in a car wreck at 56. One of the owners of a small company I worked for years ago died in his recliner at 38. One of my coworkers and his brother were killed in a car wreck before they were to attend a Tennessee football game.

It seems so unfair that there is only one way into this world and a million ways out. That is why I try to walk the fine line between spending it all now and having nothing if I make it to retirement and saving it all now and then not making it to retirement. I got my first camper on Memorial Day weekend last year and traded it for a bigger one a few weeks ago. I want to enjoy whatever life I have left. Even though I am a Christian and know where I will be once I am gone, I am not in a hurry to get there. I have a lot of things I would like to see and do here first but I know once I get to the other side, it won't matter whether I did any of them.

Ok, last minute edit here. I just remembered that I know of two people killed in golf cart accidents. One was my bosses, boss' wife who must have been around 40. She fell out on a paved path. Another was a young guy (31 maybe) with two young children. He turned over his cart while playing golf. I know a lot of campers have golf carts so be safe out there.
