391 weeks remaining....

So it has been a very productive last two weeks.  I started an "RV Boondockers" group on Facebook and it has almost 70 members so far. Since I hope to boondock more often than not, this will be a great resource.

In a couple of weeks I will be heading out on a two week trip up the California coast and then to the Eastern Sierras.  Hoping to find a few new boondocking spots and hit a few favorites including Benton Hot Springs.

Also I have been reviewing how much it will cost to fulltime.  I'm hoping $35,000 a year will be sufficient and that the stock market will not crash as soon as I put my life savings in the market.  Also healthcare will be changing a lot in the next few years and hope that it too will work in our favor.  I have also been looking at the CARE program from Escapees and am very impressed and feel comforted in the fact that it is there when/if I need it.

So for now I am excited again and ready to get out there, but I need to be patient and wait until the finances are right.  Continue to follow me and see where this goes; you never know how awesome it will be.

394 weeks remaining....

Well at 394 weeks we are basically in the same boat. Looking to rid ourselves of belongings and really think through the reality of giving up our home and lifestyle. Saving money is getting a little easier, but still is challenging.  It will be much easier when we don't have a place to put all the crap we buy. Looks like we want to move up the date but I'm a little scared to go too early and be without a job for too many years before being eligible for Social Security.  But so far we are on track.

Encouraging comments welcome.
