Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.

We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

not sure

mark first off welcome to the forum!!!!!

Have you thought about... Flea markets........Workamper......Auto detailing......craft fairs and such for additional income?

as far as fuel .....800 miles is an average 12 to 14 hour drive, to do that you would miss everything in between... a good days drive is 250 miles then find a place to park .....boondock .....campground... and stay a few days, find what is available to make a few dollars and enjoy the new spot!

After a little trial and error you will find your niche.........then you can plan your point a to point b schedule and enjoy the trip

As far as budgeting that is something you will learn quick or you will learn the hard way........I have a basic needs budget of 1200 dollars a month...it covers a tank of fuel , food ,phone & Internet and a couple nites of campground,,,anything above that I find work for, and anything not spent out of that 1200 stays within that account and it builds up for emergencies......

Now that being said...I am very frugal with my money, if it is not going to make me more money I dont spend it.....I boondock alot , I have several ways of making an honest dollar on the road....

Disability wise this is a choice you have to make......the national park service , army corp of engineers., fish game and wildlife all offer drastic discounts to disabled pass holders and obtaining a pass is a simple procedure ,,

you are on the west coast and boondocking areas are all over the place so your cost can be kept down if its what you want.

good luck
