    Default Not Renewing

    Y'all ... I'll not be renewing my membership here. It's a simple matter of econmics although some might think the few extra $$$ is nothing but frankly, the CAD/US exchange rate right now is ridiculously high and now that we're retired, corners have to be shaved everywhere. Our 6 & 1/2 month "adventure" in the USA with our 5th wheel blew the budget. We're not broke but that trip left us with wayyyy less savings than we ever anticipated all because of the exchange rate.

    Y'all can still communicate with us on facebook or my personal email which is rickyerex at gmail dot com

    I can understand the downsizing thing, it's an age thing I think, maybe it's got to do with bald heads and grey hairs.
    Gonna miss ya though.
    It's nice to be the same
    But
    It's great to be different!

    I thought the exchange rate was at a 22 % added hit..or .78 cents U.S. Has it changed that much since yesterday?

    If you hadn't traded trucks, would you have still busted your budget?

    Actually, if I had stayed with the F350, it would have cost us more as I can sell this diesel for almost what I paid for it.

    Good choice Rick. About $15 a year is not going to impact your financial situation in any appreciable way. Besides you would miss us.

    Ya, I bet if you cut your drinking habit by 1% you would probably easily cover our club dues.

    Does that mean we are a 1% motorcycle club?
