  1. Nice to see others going thru the same plans as us! We don’t have a blog yet ….we are in Central Florida in case you ever come this way…we live in a modest 55+ community called The Woodlands at Church Lake, which we think we will hold onto and winter in Florida. We have our Rig, now just working on getting it and the truck paid off! We also bought a 1.5 acre RV lot in the N GA mountains, called Ridgebrook at Blue Ridge, if you guys like to hike it is a really neat spot. Let us know once you are on the road, and maybe we can meet there for a few days of amazing hiking!


  2. We have reached almost five years on the road and I wouldn’t trade one minute of it. I hope we can have many more years on the road. Good luck to you guys.


  3. We did it! We traveled 7 years with our 31 ft 5th Wheel. Loved it! Sold everything except 3 footlockers with our yearbooks and other personal items. Those were stored at my sisters. It’s a great country out there. “Mosey”ed more than “zoomed” around. Got to 37 states. It is hard to believe that we have been “off the road” 9 years already. Dan retired at 57. It is an economical way to live if you have some memberships or lots like you mentioned.
    Good luck on the planning. Wished I had been more of a birdwatcher back then.


  4. Keep the goal in mind. We did and ended up on the road full time way sooner than we thought we would. Been full-timing for two years and love it.


  5. We have been SnowBirds for 3 winters now in a affordabe Class A Gas Bounder motorhome. Life has been great! If you love the outdoors, people, travelling and more then this may be the life for you! Keep your eyes on the Goal and just make it happen! We downsized our home after our 2nd year and decided to stay in real estate so that we have a nest egg if we ever have to quit RVing. This year we are doing the circumference of the USA, having come from western Canada where we reside in the summers. RVing can be as expensive or cheap as you make it. Coming from where we live we find it quite affordable if we stay away for the 5+ Star resorts. Gas is likely our biggest expense but parking in one spot for a while off sets that. Boondocking on BLM Lands and utilizing the odd Wal-Mart or Casino parking lot can help too if you are on a tight budget. There are always ways to make things work if you want them bad enough and I would encourage you to do research. You can follow our mistakes, antics and fun on our Blog at: http://boundingtheborders.blogspot.com/ Cheers!


  6. Best wishes for you to achieve your goal! Hubby still works full time and will do so for about ten more years, but we are already enjoying a paid-off home and a “new to us” Class A motor home as of 2 1/2 years ago. it is a great way to take affordable vacations, and we also get to take our four-legged pals that we adore along with us, as well as a family member or two from time to time. You will love it. Hang onto the dream and it will be yours before you know it!


  7. Stumbled across you on a comment you made to another post. Sounds like we have a lot in common. We had the same dream and kind of jumped in with both feet. Still trying to figure out WordPress. Anyway, check us out at wow.wherervtoday.com

    See you down the road!!


  8. Robin was 52 and I “just 40″ when we were able to go full-time. No regrets. We have made (and still do make) lots of mistakes. ha ha laugh and learn.

    speaking of learning. I am really new to blogging. It looks like you know how to do “pages”, or “menus”, or whatever it is called to have the topics at the top of the page and be organized/topics/categories under them. . . . . . can you help me?
    I am happy to share phone and email for contact. http://wp.me/P4i0ae-x

    I have read the help pages and they do not help. my page looks like baked oatmeal is the most important thing in my life. see? I wanted it to say “interests” then have recipes/books/crafts/etc under that . .


  9. Hello Kevin and Janet. I like your about page and your blog. Your husband’s line of work is very close to what mine was before I retired. I was the superintendent of water distribution in my city before retiring. It is nice to meet you. Thank you for visiting my blog, LifeInLorain, and best wishes with your goals. -Mark


  10. Thanks for viewing my blog and leading me to your site! It is always a pleasure to meet other people that enjoy the same type of activities. I look forward to reading about your adventures!!


  11. Hi

    Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for deciding to follow my blog. I appreciate the support. Am glad that I discovered yours, love what you have been up to. I will be checking it out again


  12. Always good to find someone in the RV world who does genealogy too! Good luck in your journey. It was a rough year for us, but we did it. In our case, my work was moving to Chicago and I had no desire to go nor did hubby. So we put the house on the market living in the RV we had bought. Paid off bills to get down to just the RV payment. While we actually have a few more bills than that, we are learning to live with the little bit of retirement we get and pay against them and not go out of budget. Stick to your plan and you will get there!


  13. We are also in the infancy of planning to leave it all behind and go do what we both said we would when we graduated HS…you know back in the days when God was a boy :) I am amazed at how many folks do this! Good Luck.


  14. Our nest is empty and we are having the time of our lives!! The hubs and I enjoy day trips, nature and photograpy!! Thanks for visiting Its All About Purple, have a wonderful Sunday!!
