    What does your opening post have to do with "Political news and Current events?"

    Nothing.

    But it sure is Trumpian, another "all about ME" post.

    :)

    Piss off with your trolling. The adults were having a nice discussion.

    Indeed. Continually bitter and angry about life in general. Typical liberal woman.

    Why do you care, in the first place? And second... are you saying YOU never made a top post that had nothing to do with "Political news and Current events?"

    ROTFLMAO... you, of all people. Hilarious.

    I understand what you're saying, Connie.. luckily, though, we each have our own fears, phobias, likes and dislikes.

    I'm more troubled by the idea of germs and possibly dirty linens from hundreds, if not thousands, of strangers than I am of being murdered in my sleep... :D

    Works both ways, too, when you think about it. The people who invite us into their homes are trusting souls, too... WE could murder THEM just as easily, lol. Also, we could trash their homes, rob them blind, and otherwise harm them.

    It all comes down to trust. I don't trust hotels to be clean, you don't trust people with your life. It's all good (or bad, LOL)...

    I don't trust hotels to be clean either. I just mitigate that by bringing my own stuff including my own cleaning supplies. And if a person is renting out their house, it may not be clean either. For instance hotel linens ( when they are washed) must be washed at a certain temp. The vast majority of home machines don't even get near to the temp to sanitize and actually kill germs. So you may be sleeping on sheets that only 30 people have slept on, but they may have never actually been washed in hot water. So they may "look" clean.

    I am cool with the concept of AirBNB and all. But, its just not my cup of tea. Nor is having roommates in general though. I don't like other people in my space. It would actually piss me off to have someone not family cooking dinner in my house with my stuff. Even when its family it pisses me off - if it isn't my immediate family.

    When you think about it, the camper concept is best for both of us... LOL. PS... Airbnb OR hotel, I ALWAYS bring my own pillows... sanitizer cloths.... and definitely slippers, because I NEVER walk barefoot anywhere but home... :rolleyes::D

    I miss ours. We would just book campgrounds near places we otherwise wanted to visit. Not only did we have all our own stuff - our own beds, our own linens our own clean bathroom but the kids had lots of outdoors times when we weren't sight seeing or whatever else we were there to do. We would take it down to my brother's beach house and stay in the camper in their driveway so that the kids could play together but we would have privacy. We would do the same thing with friends in Jersey that we would visit. I keep trying to talk my husband into another but he has soured on it a little bit because despite all his loving care, keeping it covered, properly tilted, waxing and coating the roof, it still got a small roof leak.

    My youngest child has one in her driveway that was used A LOT when her kids were younger... we went with them several times, and I really enjoyed it! Nowadays, with the kids older and busy with baseball, horse shows, other school activities with friends, it pretty much just sits in the driveway... shame. She might as well sell it... especially with the boy going off to college in the fall. I can't see them getting much use out of it any more. Too bad...

    We probably sold ours prematurely but we had intended to upgrade. so, we sold ours - to get the downpayment on the new one. But, we had another opportunity come up and instead of sinking 100K in a new truck and 5th wheel, we bought another property. It was a better financial move but still I miss the camping. We had two families we would go with a lot and it was a lot of fun. One of them moved this past fall.. :( I keep telling DH we just need to get a small hybrid. We don't go for anything longer than 2 or 3 nights anyway, and it would be fun to just be able to go for a quick weekend here or there and let the kids take a friend or two. But withour friends gone, he is less motivated to do it for just us. We would probably only use it 4 or 5 times a year.

    A smaller one with fold-out 'rooms' like my daughter's had is probably better. Easier to tow, easier to park, and still plenty of room... hers sleeps 6 easily, has all the comforts of home, but you can tow it with a Ford Explorer or something like that, and just a trailer hitch. They also just usually used it over a weekend or at most 4 or 5 days, it was definitely a lot of fun. But.... all good things must come to an end, right?

    Happiness never comes from external sources . Its all about perspective.

    Those posts of mine you linked are ALL either "Political news or current events."
    Your opening post belongs in another forum.

    I can understand that you want to avoid talking about political news and current events since Trump fired 5 people today, some wre even escorted out of the WH.
    Correction, Trump didn't actually fire them, ordered an underling to do it. And that is hilarious because you Trumpies were conned by "The Apprentice" where Trump said, "You're fired!".....and you all swooned that Trump was so manly, yet in practice the man is as cowardly as they come. What's it feel like to be conned? Does it make you feel smart?
    LOL

    Used it in Barcelona last time. It was splendid and saved me from the usual hotel experience.
