How about new luggage and traveling clothes?

 

LOL, not really, my answer, like others,  is a new car and a house.

    I would get a website and sell a book entitled, "How To Win The Mega Millions In Four Easy Steps."

    Step One. Decide if you want to play. If you do...

    Step Two.  Go buy a ticket.

    Step Three.  Keep your fingers crossed.

    Step Four.  Cash your winning ticket.

    Disclaimer. I have not yet won with this method and neither may you.

    The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

    Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

      Thanks JJ that's mighty nice and generous of you. Just make sure your gift's value is $14,000 or less so no one has to pay taxes on it.

      I can't speak for others, but my 1996 Toyota Tacoma just died. The head gasket went at 469,807 miles. 

      I would do the same for those I know on LP when I win!

      Party

      I know lust and envy are wrong but...how did you manage to get 469,000 miles out of your vehicle?

      I have a 15 year old vehicle with not nearly as many miles.  I have never managed to keep a vehicle past 15 years but I plan on keeping this one until at least 2020.

        Of course pinball machines.

        Well, that's pure logic.  Why of course, pinball machines!  Who wouldn't?  Doh

          I would buy a plane and travel to other countries and to transport food to children in poverty... I would give it away... It's ok, my goal will be to hit again. :0)

          I'm glad you stated you would hit again MD.  I was beginning to worry!

              I have a 15 year old vehicle with not nearly as many miles.  I have never managed to keep a vehicle past 15 years but I plan on keeping this one until at least 2020.

              When I bought it, in 2006, the truck had 175,000 miles.

              At 200k, it needed bearings

              at 240k ball joints

              Then it was clear sailing till it needed a radiator last may. But, somehow the cooling lines for the transmission allowed coolant to leak into the transmission at 455,555 miles and that was $1800 to replace on top of the $500 for the radiator.

              Then, with all that behind me, the head gasket went at 469,807

              I was driving about 240 miles / week until my job changed and then it was 1300 miles / week for a few years. I was doing about 400 - 600 miles / week up until it quit on me.

              I did not do jack-rabbit starts or jam on the brakes stopping. I always made sure that the fluid levels were topped off. I would get about 100k miles per set of tires. Gentile driving pays off!

                  naturally I'd follow will Rogers advice and fold it so it doubles !:)

                  Then I'd invest in research to manufacture common sense! I got an insiders tip that it's at an all time low :)

                        A new mini van to replace the existing minivan.

                        Have not decided on the model yet - Sienna and Odyssey are at the top of the list at the moment.

                        To me, a minivan is the most comfortable vehicle for long trips with family :)
