432 Weeks remaining...

The wife and I will be selling the house, packing up all we can take and selling the rest to get started on our dream life "Full Time RVing". We have an 8 year plan to achieve this goal. This blog will chronicle our life over the next 8 years while we prepare our lives and finances for this great adventure. I invite you to join us on this adventure by subscribing to this blog. The date is set: April 1, 2022

The genesis of our story must start with the one thing that will make it all possible: a refinance on our home. Doing this refi will enable us to pay off almost all our debt and allow us to save the money necessary to live a life style that is stress free and exciting. We will be debt free in 55 months from this January, leaving us 41 months to stash away all the money we can to realize our dream.

We have decided on the 5th wheel we want, a Montana 3850FL or the equivalent available trailer in the year 2021. Who knows what there will be in 7 years. An RV hovercraft?? I'm sure some pretty exciting features will be available by then. http://www.keystonerv.com/montana/ I'm sure this will be comfortable home.

We also have decided to make our maiden voyage a 3 month trip to Alaska starting off in Spokane, WA after a short visit to my wife's father. 30 days to get there, 30 days seeing all the sights we can and 30 days to get back to Spokane, WA. Expected departure date will be May 1, 2022, returning back to the Los Angeles area late Oct 2022.

If you are full timing now or have tips or suggestions please comment below.

Stay tuned for our family's progress.

  1. Just found this blog. We are also about 8 years out from fulltime RVing. Hope to find we are going through many of the same thought processes. Mark from Missouri

    1. Forgot to mention we refinanced about six months ago and applied the savings to the monthly principal payments. Will cut out three years on our house loan. Have been also paying down debt and putting extra cash towards each loan, starting with the fastest one to pay off. Mark from Missouri

  2. Just found your blog too. We're planning a 'working retirement' and hope to be one road in a couple of years. You can follow our adventures at www.rnrontheroad.blogspot.com. Best of luck as you maneuver toward your FT goal!
