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.
I'm kind of a numbers freak and we are thinking of using the $3000 a month budget in 8.5 years with average inflation that would have to be about $3,630 a month. We are figuring on staying a parks for monthly rates a lot. Frankly, our budget will most likely be whatever our monthly income turns out to be - and the budget will still demand savings which we have not figured in yet. Mark from Missouri.ReplyDelete
