I've done an RV and hated it.  And I would not do an RV for Yellowstone, because many of the coolest places in the park are not accessible by RV.   Just not enough room on the old roads, which were paved in the 1880s to 1920s.  We just got back from Yellowstone.  Extremely cool and wonderful, and very, very crowded.

1. Any exciting plans for the day or the week?

My sister-in-law and her family arrive this weekend, so my plans are to clean and make room.

2. Cleaning. Do you have a set schedule (Mondays laundry, Tuesday bathrooms, etc) or do you have another system? 

"Clean it when it looks like it needs it."

3. Pets. Who is/was your favorite pet and why?

The angora cat that I had from about 1993 to 2003--she was my sidekick. After that it would be the dog my parents got when they got married, and she lived till I was a teenager. Best.Dog.Ever. She was half German Shepherd and half Spitz. After that it would have to be Newman, the rat I accidentally adopted about 18 years ago and who lived to the very old age of 3.

4. Beach or mountains?

Beach, because I live near them. Mountains are gorgeous and I would definitely vacation near or on one. Now if I lived on Maui, I'd have both.

5. Garage sale or Goodwill?

Both, depending on what I need and what I'm in the mood for.

1. No.

2, Friday night is laundry night.  DH usually does the lawn work on weekends. No schedule for anything else.

3.  Red, our golden retreiver  who passed last year.   Had him the longest of any pet so became more attached.

4. Beach.  have  not really spent much time in the mountains.

5. A local charity.

We rented a motorhome years ago & went around our state, with 2 kid & it was fun.  However i rented  a motorhome recently to drive less than 100 miles and camp with some girls. The cost to drive those measly 93 miles was $50.  So that's a factor, how much gas will cost along the way.  Any vacation is expensive though & it's just one of the costs to factor into the costs.

1. Any exciting plans for the day or the week?

Not particularly.  

2. Cleaning. Do you have a set schedule (Mondays laundry, Tuesday bathrooms, etc) or do you have another system? 

I don't really have a system.  DS is taking over most of the housecleaning duties, since he's at home all day and I'm not, and he has a schedule.  It's so funny now, I hear him say things like, "I feel like all I ever do is vacuum and wipe countertops..."  Really???  I can't imagine. ROFL.  

3. Pets. Who is/was your favorite pet and why?

I can't pick favorites.  It would be one of the cats, probably, simply because I prefer cats to dogs...but of those I've had, I really can't play favorites.  The one we have is pretty cool.  

4. Beach or mountains? Why?

Either is fine.  Mountains are easier for us at this point in our lives...beaches are completely impossible with Joel.  I'd love to go to the beach sometime by myself, but I've not been able to work that in over the past 15 years or so.  

5. Garage sale or Goodwill?

Goodwill.  Garage sales are a HUGE waste of time.  So much easier just to dump the stuff off.

4. Beach or mountains? Why? I live in the mountains (kind of), so beach for vacation.
