At vacation time many of us will travel seeking new adventures or a well-deserved reprieve from life in the fast lane. One way to reach those destinations is by motorhome, even with the high price of gasoline. Just ask Grass Valley's Mark and Judi Christensen.

The Christensens purchased their used motorhome last fall on eBay, then flew to Arizona to inspect the vehicle before closing the sale and driving it home. After arriving in Grass Valley, the motorhome underwent a few minor maintenance repairs and alterations.

In spite of today's rising cost of gasoline, Mark says their motorhome is still a vacation value. "The motorhome's an enjoyable way to go. It's actually more comfortable than riding in the car. You have all the room you need; my hotel's right here."

Judi keeps the motorhome stocked and ready to go at a moment's notice.
