Now that we are retired, the big challenge is to arrange the maximum amount of travel for the minimum amount of money. We did a pretty good job last year, taking advantage of deals to arrange a few almost-free trips to Vegas, and also road-tripping to Reno and Santa Barbara. Some generous friends purchased a vacation home on Molokai and invited us to join them, not once, but twice last year. And another big-hearted family included us in their escape to a luxury vacation-club villa on the Big Island of Hawaii. We enjoyed the jet-setting life on a Priceline budget.
