I noticed the same thing at the campground I stayed at this week. It was full, and nearly every camper there was 20k plus, and the trucks that towed them in were 50k plus trucks. if you took an extremely conservative value of 50k for camper and truck, there were well over 3 million dollars sitting on that small 25 acre campground
In Myrtle taking care of my dad, or at least his grass. I decided this morning that I was going to grab a hotel on the beach for tonight and treat my wife and kids to a night out on the town. We have been here a gazillion times, so we normally staybat dads because my son would rather fish and play in dad's lake.
Opend my BonVoy (Marriott) app this morning, nada. Every Marriott and all affiliates sold out within 30 miles.
Firework store yesterday had a 30 min wait just to get inside. Another 30 min to checkout.
I've been checking prices this week for any last min deals. Areas I'd consider are slap full and prices are up there for the ones that aren't. I did not have my heart set on it, so I was only going if I could find a bargain.
Lots more fireworks have been available the last few years since Hillary Clinton was forced, by the American people’s voting against her, to cancel her celebratory gala. Since then, seems the Dems don’t like to see the sky lit up. Tough!
That's because of the Trump tax cuts. Folks have a little more " disposable" income. I know you don't need me to tell you that. Might help other's gain a little more understanding though. I know 2 couples down there right now. Both are telling me that are having great vacations, without the worry of going broke. I hope to visit Clearwater soon. I'm just being thrifty because my recent move cost a small fortune. We haven't even got the first utility bill yet. I'm waiting to see about what that will cost, along with peeling out Benjamin's that we've already paid out. Guess we will see Monday when the mail comes. 😁
They are loaded with $ so they are on the move. They did the beach Thursday and Friday and hit the Smokies late Friday night. They are making America great again. It's what we Americans do when the government leaves us alone a little bit.
