    Re: Does anyone own an RV?

    I'm not even sure of my business plan, either.

    But, I do think that to continue growing my business that I need to spend more time at the stadiums. Right now, staying in hotels simply doesn't make that feasible for periods of time that I believe would be necessary to keep things growing the way I'd like. If I can spend 3-4 weeks with a team, and I understand they won't be home every day while I'm "in town", but if I plan well, maybe they will be for 20 of the 30 days, that over the course of enough time, assuming there's no catastrophic issue, this will pay for itself. While my car certainly seems very reliable (it is a 2015), there's nothing really stopping it from also having some catastrophic failure. Sure, it's not nearly as likely because it is new and has 32,000 miles on it - but things do happen like that to cars like mine from time-to-time.

    Maintenance costs are something I'm a little unsure of. I *think*, however, that short of big time issues like a transmission or something major with an engine, that I could handle something like that as long as it's not something that pops up on every single trip. Insurance is something that I do need to look into, though. I'm hoping my age and perfect driving record help out there.

    Networking exists, but it's done at the fields. My business doesn't generally rely in products or services - I've never once had a meeting with someone that wasn't at a ballpark or at a restaurant as it relates to my business. Maybe that will change one day, but it's tough for me to see right now. However, if "Bob" and I have some ideas we'd like to discuss, there's always an Applebees somewhere.

    My trip to Arizona last spring cost me nearly $1000. And that meant I was able to stay for five days. If I can stay for 3-4 weeks for $1500, that's a slam dunk for me business wise, assuming there are no problems along the way.

    And just to clear up any confusion - I do this baseball thing full time now. It's been my full time job for years.
