Will Your Economic Stimulus Check Help Pay for a Timeshare Vacation?
Monday, May 12, 2008
“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do, than by the ones you did.” -Mark Twain
Sam Clemens, a.k.a., Mark Twain loved to travel. He traveled by ship to South America at the age of 21 and later piloted a riverboat along the Mississippi River. He also traveled in some of the roughest territory of Nevada and California, as well as living in cities including San Francisco and New York. Some of his earliest travel writing included 4 months spent in Hawaii writing about the Sandwich Islands, and his great literary works that center around travel, like Innocents Abroad and Following the Equator. The point is, Mark Twain loved to travel and explore both the US and around the world.
Considering how much Mark Twain loved to travel, I can’t help but wonder if he had a piece of the $168-billion stimulus package coming back to him from the US Treasury, would he use some of it to take a vacation? Maybe he would buy a timeshare resale to make traveling easier and to lock-in the price of his accommodations. Perhaps he’d even become part of a timeshare vacation club, that included exchange privileges for a riverboat cruise.
We can only guess at how Twain would live his life in the modern world, but we don’t have to speculate on his philosophy of existence. He made that pretty clear: Live life without regrets.
Americans May Be Using Checks for Travel and Timeshares
Los Angeles Times staff writer, Hugo Martin, thinks that many people will be using all or part of their stimulus checks to take some much needed vacation time, and in his L A Times online post from May 11, he even suggests a few locations. But he brings up an interesting point:
While your stimulus check was meant to boost the economy, it wasn’t meant to boost a foreign economy. Martin points out that, in his opinion, it would be much more patriotic of Americans to spend their checks on American soil.
