Newbie Introducing myself

Been full timing since November 2012. We were kinda forced into it due to unfortunate circumstances but now I wished we had done this sooner. If life throws you a lemon - make lemonade...

Anyways, what started this all was being laid off. After 6 months off work and exhausting our savings we decided to buy an RV, pack up and sell everything else that we couldn't take with us. Within a few months my girlfriend will finish her schooling at Steno Type Institute then were off! For now we were invited to live off the land that a family member owns with full hookup. All we pay is the electric. It's given us time to get our feet wet with the new lifestyle and to also do repairs on the coach and get her ready for wherever we end up next.

Who knows what the next chapter brings...
