I too am going to back out of this idea of a gathering. We had to fill up on home heating oil and it was over a grand, usually around $600. The good news is we recently got solar power and our electric bill was $65. Some neighbors had $700 to 1100 bills (more than double) and they did nothing different from last year. I might get to the WCHA get together and it’s an opportunity to visit my daughter in Saranac Lake. I’ll be taking the Prius. But I am all in on a trip to the BWCA in September.
