Hope you used the opportunity to tell them about the law of supply and demand, ie the supply glut during Covid when fewer were traveling, and the now larger demands. 


Actually the plague caused huge sales.  People didn't want to be in hotels and restaurants.   Manufacturers can't keep up.  Great time to sell.   Anyone looking at the political landscape honestly would ridding themselves of campers and motor homes.

Re: So Turdy, Sam?

Why?   When I want to use my motorhome myself.   You can’t just go out and rent a ride like mine.   And, they just keep getting more expensive.

I can have my “vacation” house anywhere I want it to be.   And right now, it is safe and out of the weather in my shop.

If you plan on dying within the next 5-10 years you should be fine. 

Beyond that, listen to what your party says.

Re: So Turdy, Sam?

who wants an old motorhome? everyone wants farmland, an appreciating asset that gives you income every year. No comparison.

Re: So Turdy, Sam?

I don’t want farm land.   Been there - done that.   I’m enjoying my retirement.   I’ve never been sorry that we sold the farm.   NEVER.   I gave my kids the chance to farm before we sold it.   And they all said no. 

You're looking at farming through your eyes - and saying that’s what everyone wants.   It’s not true.   Not everyone wants to work till they say they die.   And I’m one of them.

Lots of people, terrible waste of money imo, but to each there own.   Personally I'll stick with my tent.  But not really interested in camping places that are accessible to big motor homes.

Hope that helps.

Re: So Turdy, Sam?

Sam, I have both. Nice tents, and a big fifth wheel camper, too, with room for the whole clan. But I didn't sell the farm to buy either.

Life well planned. I think that is a copyrighted slogan of one of the investment companies.

Re: So Turdy, Sam?

Rental - sure.   I have rented out lots of things in my life, from farm equipment to airplanes.    No worries.    I rented out a farmhouse I had for a year.   Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, drove me more crazy than having a “renter”.   I know people that have rental houses - not me.   I don’t need that headache.   

As far as the farmland goes, it’s much the same to me as renting a house.   We didn’t - and don’t live on the property we farmed.   It was 3 hours from where I lived and worked.   We discussed building on the farm, and moving there.   We looked at it actually for a long time - years - knowing I was going to have to retire from Air Traffic Control at 56.   The deal was sealed with my heart problems at 52.   I could no longer do the farm work.   I like where we are living.   There is “no” mud.   I have a great house.    I have a great shop.   

If I don’t want to do anything on a given day, I don’t.   I have my gardens, and I can quit them anytime.

You Trump Bass Tards seem to think that I woke up one morning, and said, “ I’m going to sell the farm today!”   Selling my farm was years, literally years in the making.   I offered to help my kids build a house on the farm, farm with me for a few years, and then they would have the option to take it over in the future.   They all said, “NO!”.    You Trump Bass Tards seem to think, that I never consulted my kids on selling the farm, and what THEY would like to see done.   

These “kids” hadn’t been on the farm since they were 6 and 8 years old.   They had no clue what running an 800 acre farm entailed.   And it wasn’t something that I was going to be able to teach them overnight.

You Trump Bass Tards see everything as so easy, so cut and dried.    What works for you, works for everybody.   Well, guess what?   Like the Bass tard Trump found out, things are not as “easy” as he said they were.   Neither was my choice to sell the farm.   

My selling MY farm, was a good choice.   It WAS the right choice.   And I could give a f—- what you think or don’t think.   Because, I know that most of you Trump Bass Tards don’t think - or you still wouldn’t be supporting that Bass tard.
