The Open Roads Are Calling ME!!!

September 24th, 2009 at 07:55 pm



Are you guys watching the PBS series on the US's National Parks? Watched an episode or two last night about it and the lodges that are in them and am re-inspired for more land travel. As discussed in a previous post about having a houseboat I mentioned that I'd like to one day own a small Toyota type RV and I stated that this desire/goal was going unfunded.

Today while I was out on the web looking around rate shopping (still have money sitting in Money Market account earning diddly that needs moving) I looked at my ING account. You know I had a big hoo-ha with ING at one time, BUT, I've been having $12 a month autodrafted into there for a while now and it didn't really have a goal. So, today I went in and gave it a new nickname and goal - RV Land Travel.

Current balance is $140.99. It's earning 1.30% APY. Meaning about .15 a month right now. Ehhh, well. It now has a reason for being!

Going over to the sidebar to set up a new tracking section for it. I am ready to hit the National Parks trail.

Unfortunately my wallet isn't quite as ready as I am! Oh, and have you noticed? All my current goals have to do with travel or motion of some type? I, being gypsy-hearted like to go go go, yet Hubster could care less if he ever gets out of the yard!

    Good for you! I use to have a mutual fund that I named my RV fund and I put $50 a month in it. However, once I actually HAD to live in a travel trailer for 15 months (building our new house), I lost all my desire to RV! Sounds like fun for you!

    Yes, the PBS special on the nat'l parks had the same effect on me... i have been dying to travel for quite some time now, and visiting all the nat'l parks is even in my sidebar! and that show just really made the urge more powerful., altho i'm not going anywhere anytime soon.

    DH's dream is to retire and get an RV to travel around the states. He's hoping all 5 kids settle in different areas so we have a good excuse to travel. We've recently started geocaching, so that could be an added incentive.

    You go, Ms. Toad. (Wind in the Willows reference) Toot! Toot!

    There have really been some deals out there on boats/RVs and all rec things because of the economy. You never know what your $140 might get you! Smile
