I’m not the kind of guy (at least I’d like to think) that would blatantly flaunt it. I think the changes I’d make would be major in lifestyle, but relatively modest in terms of materialism…if that makes any sense.
First and foremost, I’d set my parents up so that my Dad can retire. He got burned a few years back when his construction company went under. He’s in his early 50’s now and working as a Superintendent for a General Contractor. The money’s good, but not nearly as good as it was. Their original plan was to retire early and travel. They love RV'ing. My Mom has M.S., so they want to travel as much as they could while my Mom is able to do so. I'd hook them up with a top of the line Montana 5th wheel and a [url=://haulerworld.com/yahoo_site_admin/assets/images/trucks1207_013.339132156_std.jpg&imgrefurl=:&tbnh=107&tbnw=143&ei=SaitSIqIJJ2kiAGo0p2kDg&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dgmc%2B4500%2Bhauler%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26rls%3DSUNA,,:p1pchqr0] GMC 4500 Hauler and tell 'em to get the hell outta town.

I just want to live somewhere with trees and creeks and lakes where I could buy a butt-load of land and build a [url=,%20co.] custom log home where there’s nobody withinin earshot to bug me. 70-100 acres sounds about right.
My girls like horses, so I’d build a nice raised center isle barn and riding arena for them. That’d be cool. Myself? I’d like to build an [url=http://www.fs.fed.us/r8/gwj/northriver/recreation/shooting_ranges/images/west_side_rifle_range6w.
