I am a total wannabe as well. I am no where near ready to make this change, but I want to start researching it and figure out as much as possible as soon as possible. Ya'll would crack up if you saw me sitting on my bed in a bedroom larger than the RV or trailer I'd likely end up with, the floor piled with no fewer than 9 laundry baskets of clean wash waiting to be put away by the laundry putting away fairy that just never shows up for some reason. The happiest moments of my life (kids aside) have been when I've been traveling, living out of a tent or back pack. DH and I have already agreed that this is our retirement plan. He just turned 40 so that is a ways away. Our kids are 4.5 and nearly 7 and are "dual schooled" right now with Clonlara and a magnet school a half hour from home. Most likely we'll transition them out of school next year anyway. Most of what I do could be done anywhere (birth work, fitness, even my adjunct position!). And for sure our biggest expenses would be so much less if we downsized in a major way. Anyone here own a campsite that they stay at seasonally? How does mail work for everyone (I know snail mail is so passe, but there are times I use it!)? If you don't mind me being here, I would love to be able to just soak in this reality, good bad and indifferent. I need some inspiration and some reality checks about now!
