So excited to see this 'tribe'. Aimee, I have followed your blog for a few months...amazing!
A few years ago, one of my friends sold her house and traveled with her husband and three daughters. At the time, I thought...wow...cool, but craaaaaaazy, right?! And I never really considered it again. We were living 'the dream'. I have a great photography business, DH has a great job. We have the house the car two kids, a cat...you get the idea.
Fast forward to last year and my husband, who is a union electrician, becomes an economic statistic and is blessed with a 6 month layoff. I casually, jokingly mentioned that we should sell the house, buy a motorhome and travel off the grid. He laughed. I laughed. I never mentioned it again.
A few days later, he gives me the "you know...I was thinking...". And it was a sealed deal. It's amazing how lots of time together and lack of money can change your perspective on what's truly important.
He is back to work now, temporarily and we are working to pay off everything and sell the house. We have an 38' motorhome that we are renovating to better suit us. His next layoff will be at the end of next month, but he has union night class obligations
for a few more months.
We are planning to get a seasonal spot on a local lake for this year so I can continue my heart-work here. Then we will travel during the off season.
We LOVE the east coast, but we have never been to the west coast, so we are thinking about starting there, staying as close to the ocean and warm sunlight as possible. Any tips?
Oh, and my 1 year old son's birthmama is pregnant and has asked us to be the parents!
She is due in August, so that could put a little twist in this plan. Such is life! Always exciting!
