Off toward the adventure...

Greetings everyone from Patrick & Donna!

We have come to that 'familiar place' many of you arrived at years ago--in that the traditional "stuff" centered worldview has lost its charm. no

Our circumstance may begin a bit differently (or not) as 5th wheeling is being seen as a housing solution for what may be several years of being "disaster gypsies' working reservist roles with FEMA.  At least that is the intent.  Even without such needs, the entire idea of full-time travel has been fomenting for some time.  At some point thinking must take the form of action--and we are there!  At our ages putting it off until 'later' likely means that the RV would be a casket pulled by a hearse.  No fun at all--so time to get doing...

Right now, we are in the heavy research stages.  Pragmatic things such as home base logistics, finances, healthcare, and most certainly--a rig that is configurable for living and work--and the steel horse to move it around.  I look forward to reading the content here, and sorting things out in a seasoned community.

You will find the information and research done by Howard and Linda as a great tool to work through the questions you have. We studied and followed this site for over a year before beginning our adventure. We have loved our RV/travel/Mexico lifestyle for the last 4 1/2 years and we hope your adventure is as awesome as ours has been.

Enjoy the planning and research as you move forward, it's all part of RV life.
