I'd love to get a boat someday but getting a truck to pull it, trailer, boat, boards and tubes, and maintenance costs without going into debt is difficult to obtain in the short term for a young family.
What have you found to bring your family together/build traditions and memories that made a difference that the average family can pull off without debt?
