It's easier for me to consolidate most of what I have, and gift or throw away unnecessary items. Meaning it would cost more to ship it than to throw or gift it away. If I obtain the bike through Kiwanis bike program I can always bring it back to be recycled. Obviously I wouldn't bring it back on the plane or cruise ship. The tent/awning could be taken back with me, and that was my first intention, but I thought if someone wants to use it after I'm gone, so be it. Unlike a lot of people, I'm an extreme cheapskate. I don't like paying more for something than I have to and I would like for items to have extended usage. Meaning I gift a lot of my personal items on a regular basis, that's who I am. If I have it, and I am able to give it to others, I do. Some people think I'm too generous. I think I get it from my family. They give homeless people the clothes off their back. Oh, by the way, I read most of the posts about tents and shade structures, but I don't have enough room to transport decent ones. I wish I lived out on the west coast, things would be so much easier.

I'm very independent, but it seems like I will have to reconsider his offer. And yes, there are other camps to join. I'm just weary of a bad experience. I don't want to experience a clash of personalities close to where I lay my head down at night.... I'll keep a positive attitude though.

Yeah, what Trilobyte said. Sure wish I had thought of that.
As for "love", I believe that's a chain of truck-stops -- "Love's Travel Centers" or some such.
