Octogenarian widows need tickets too, apparently. They even rang the bucket list bell…

I saw that, and just sort of agreed that they have a legitimate reason to get all bucket list on us...
I have never played the widow card. Okay, very seldom.

Yeah, but the truth is I have one up my sleeve as well.


Um...

What I meant to say...but the truth is I have one down my pant leg as well.

It better be okay to laugh sometimes, because that one was really good.

I don't think I can do a link on my phone, but how about the guy who got his ticket cancelled for trying to scalp it for $60 over face? Wah! They cancelled my ticket.

And this one: we paid WAY over face value on SH, and now just want to recoup the $$ we shelled out. So please buy our $1200/each tickets??!!!

I have an RV Soul Mate. Well, its actually sort of a love triangle. I don't like either one of them very much alone. But, when they are together- they really rock my world!
And honestly, I love the whole family!

Your RV soul mates - are they fun loving, free, laid back, and like to party? I don't think so.

Okay, points for the death thing, but can't he use his dead campmate's ticket?

(And while I'm at it, "twin flame"? EEep. Sounds like some sort of soft core movie...)

Need 2 tickets and am willing to pay for them! (plus the "camp mate died" card) - maybe the ticket is in will-call??

Yeah, doesn't he know that he doesn't need the second ticket to transport a body as it's just cargo?

Maybe he's raffling the second ticket to pay for the funeral.

Okay... I think I'll only have a long purgatory since I didn't put that in the thread itself.
