Craigslist Trolling

More fun with Craigslist. This time, I only picked items selling for more than $5,000 (except for the cruise one, which I feel compelled to list for some reason. :) Many of the cars and boats were purchased very recently, which is an indication of how sudden the bursting of the bubble feels to these guys. At least they're trying to do the right thing...

Yeah, I get the feeling there's a lot of student interest in the blogs. Oh, how I envy the kids and their so-called "Spring Break." :)

Only rumors so far. I'm waiting to hear back from some sources...

Interesting transfer of blame there. He's not stupid for buying a toy too expensive for his mortgage, it's the mortgage that's stupid.

seems like the person selling the Nomad Lite should keep it, and dump the house.

No kidding. Given that FEMA dumped a ton of travel trailers on the market in the last couple of years, I imagine that the price they get will really be like giving it away.
