Going FT earlier than planned


This summer I posted about my plans to start full-timing in the Spring 2020.  (https://rv-dreams.activeboard.com/t65659181/class-of-2020/)  My dad had recently passed and my brother and I would need to finish settling/disposing of his assets.  

 

Well, his three teenage kids (one in 9th grade and the twins in 10th grade) have moved in with us and he's in the process of getting full custody.  (There were removed from an abusive situation.)  So he and they will be here at least through this school year, and maybe through their high school careers.  

 

I sold my 36' Winnie DP and bought a 29' Winnebago Aspect (Class C).  I also got an enclosed trailer to haul my Can-Am Spyder and my Smart Car.  

 

So with the crowd here, I've decided to move my travel schedule up.  I'll leave a couple days after Christmas and head south.  I'll finish winter in Tucson and then get to the RV Dreamers rally in eastern Tennessee.  That will give me through April to make a plan for after that.  So I'm trying to get things done here before I leave - like doctor appointments, vaccinations for my dog, hair cut, eye exam and new lenses, etc., etc.  I have already changed my domicile to Texas and am set up with Escapee's for my mail.  

 

The nice thing is that I don't have to finish purging my stuff until late Spring or later.  So, these first few months will be an education and I can still pull from my "stuff" at home if I need to.

Purging your stuff takes the right attitude. Have to be "cold hearted!" lol

Congratulations on the good news.  I don’t think you will ever regret leaving early on your adventure.  I would count it as huge blessing in life. ENJOY!!!!
