Future solo full-timer

Hello! I'm not an RVer yet, but I'm a solo. I am still researching the right rig. I have two more years before my youngest is out of high school and in with his Dad. Then I plan to live as simple as possible so every dime can go to my down payment and I can buy. I plan on paying it off in 2-3 years and leaving the corporate life behind me.

My initial goal is one full year alone on the road doing workamping and selling my art to feed my Corgi and I. I will start with a small nest egg, but I want to hit the road when it's paid for so my only expenses are maintenance, insurance and misc to cover. After a year, I will decide what's next. Ah, freedom!

Jodi

Thank you all! I am so overwhelmed from reading the forum today. My dream is still intact, but I had no idea how many things can go wrong with a rig! Oh my!

Welcome

Hi there,
I too am a solo traveler from Florida and will be at the Tampa SS. Will be arriving Wednesday and am planning on staying over night. I'll be drooling right along with you and thousands of others. Have a great time and enjoy the show.

Hey Jodi, I too am new (semi) to this sub-culture. It is pretty cool, I have been at for a bout a year, I had rented/leased several times over the last few years. Was pretty syre I wanted to do it, so I bought a class A and am doing it. I was not as brave as you sound, am keeping/have kept the house/home but I put on about 5 thousand miles between last July and present, have cycled (mountain and Road) all over Co. NM. Tx. Ok. and Ar. Kayaked a bunch, ran, and climbed a bunch too. Am having the time of my life, sometimes it's lonely, but you know what...... I like that too! Enjoy, and don't put it off!

MS. Jodi,

Hi and welcome aboard. I'm sure this group can help you find what you're looking for. Just be patient as the search starts. You'll probably make several changes as you go along.
