[RC] gas price impact - Paddi

It will have a big influence on me. I had planned on traveling far from home and taking in rides in Man,Sask,BC and the US.
With the higher gas prices I will probably pick 2 multiday rides , the championship in Manitoba and then ride in Alberta for the most part.
I am selling my 3/4 gas truck and driving my husbands diesel instead which helps. (Anyone want to buy a 1997 3/4ton extended cab with 410 rear end for pulling in good shape)
I am also selling my camper and 3 horse slant steel trailer (heck the whole rig) and have ordered a custom aluminum gooseneck  lighter and more suitable for also carrying my stock for my vendor booth. (anyone need a complete rig)
There is usually someone willing to come along and share expenses so that helps but with the gooseneck I am buying unfinished  living quarters. I won't be able to offer the luxury the camper offered with shower , toilet hotwater tank ect. Back to roughing it again...lol 
Plan on buying a small car for just driving around in.
