Am I Crazy?

I am 55 and wife is 50. I can retire in five to ten years (worst case). Parents have a house in Lakeland Florida. Been going there for years.

Been thinking about buying a house in MT Olive Shores with an RV garage. Plan to live in it during winter and RV during summer.

We also have a family home on the beach near St Pete. So, some time spent on the beach, some spent in Central Florida, and some spent seeing the USA.

Tell me how crazy this sounds...

If you were expecting this group to tell you you are crazy then you came to the wrong place.

Sounds like a plan a lot here would get involved in.

Good Luck! and Welcome to the Forum!
