The BOSS forbids me to ever go to another sales pitch presentation. She says I make an ***** of myself. I try to stay calm but as their Bull****(capital B) keeps rolling, I can't control my distaste.
They promise the world with a fence around it. I keep asking about the fine print and they try to do an end around on me and I keep trying to pin them down. The more this happens the madder I get. The last 1 we went to, the salesman asked me why I even came to the "meeting". I said I came to get my $100 prize. So they gave me instead a photo copied voucher for 3 days/2 nights in Orlando. I asked where is the accommodation and who is paying to get me there? They wouldn't tell me where I was staying and that transportation costs are my responsibility!
I shredded that paper into the tiniest pieces I could make and handed it back to them and told them that they could go in my place!
I'm a Good Sam and Passport America member. Some years I break even or a little better and some years I don't. Just depends on whether I stay at public parks more or private parks.
From what I know(very little) about membership parks, if you work the system and stay at the different parks within their system, you will have to use them anywhere from 250-300 nights a year to make them pay for themselves. I can only camp maybe 20 nights a year now, so a membership would not be financially feasible for me.
I may have it wrong(been wrong once a long time ago
) and I can stand to be corrected.
