My husband and I live in a camper on a 50 acre farm we bought last winter in the area we grew up...rural SC. I had a difficult year selling the house up in MD while my hubby took a job 80 miles away to do what he always wanted to do but it never paid enough money to support a family of 5.
When I sold the home we bought a new camper and with a lot of trouble finally got to move on our property. We moved from a large home in MD to this small camper(has a large living area), one bedroom. Our kitchen is my problem. I never have room to cook properly or have the tools. We have been in it now for a year. We are started to think of building, but, still havent done so...maybe next year.
I found myself bored during the winter but as soon as it got warmer, I am taming this wild land that hadnt been touched by human hands for many years. Taking it one step at a time here. We now have a beautiful garden full of vegs and a few flowers. My life has changed so much. Hubby has now fully retired and we are enjoying taking one day at a time. We both have good health.
I have found during this year how unimportant having stuff is? I love my life here without the stress of a full time job in real estate. If it were not for special occasions, and no room to cook, I'd live in this for the rest of my life. I was thinking it would be nice to touch bases with others that feel this way. This is not a forced way of living, rather by choice...Grandmom ruby
