Know what you mean. The way things seem to be going nowadays, it might be better that way. Don't get me started, I could rant!

I find your suggestions inspiring, as I'm redoing an old trillium these days. Don't wait to win the lotto to do cool things!

Get professional help doing the repairs to my trailer. Then go places and enjoy it. Lots of places.

I like what I do for a living but would not mind being able to take on the projects I want to do, work for a few months, finish the project then take off and go to dog agility trials around the country exploring the area around each one before moving on to the next.

Might find a good home for my 13 footer and move up to a 16 ft. unit.

I did not see Alf's boler project in there ...

Back to the lottery, I'd like to find something a little smaller than Alf's garage to start with. Plus a home with a bit more space for the dog's to run outside, and the parents to live inside.

Once that was done. I think that we would both look at our reduced work options while we plan our "round the continent" trip.

There are so many people and places that we'd like to visit locally (North America) before we meet up with ill health. If we can make it through our first big trip, then we will definately look at other continents. We have trouble enough keeping up with the friends we have me here on FGRV and bolerama.

Thank you all!

we'd take an exotic trip somewhere hot, just for a couple of weeks, to plan our future. then, we'd go to australia and new zealand (tops on my bucket list)...buy a rig for the adventures down there and sell it--or hell, just give it away!!!---before we came home. then we'd get in our little Osokozy and travel north america from top to bottom....
isn't dreaming wonderful? we've spent whole travel days doing exactly this--spending lotto funds! great way to dream....

Services! House cleaning, Nanny, Accountant, Mechanic, Tutor, Spa, (for my wife and girls), Lessons, (music, dance, judo, archery...).

Pay off the house and do some renovations. Buy the cottage on Manitoulin Island in Ontario from my dad, but let him live there in the summer just like he does now.

And of course, gas, food, campground fees, and time on the road with my family in the Limo with our Trillium, (life support).

Maybe just a couple of million would do.

* Pay off the house
* pay off the wife's student loan
* Make my father take some money
* Help the relatives in college

Quit my job and take 1 year off to travel North America with my egg.

Buy a large rural acreage property and setup a Dog-centered vacation area/campground.

Retire early, buy an egg camper and spend all day messing around with it. Oh wait, that's what I did.
