Total newbie here

I am going through a divorce and in dividing things up he is keeping our home of 28 years and I am changing over to a full time RV lifestyle. I am scared silly but excited beyond words at the same time. Camping has always been apart of my life but this is a whole nother way of living, I know. As I walk around the home I have shared with my soon to be ex, I look at everything with a new set of eyes and wonder, how in the world did I accumulate so much "stuff"? And how much do I really need of it? Much of it will stay with the house. I have sent things home with my grown kids every time they come to visit. With everything else that is going on in the divorce process; finding a travel trailer I like and can afford, finding a vehicle that will pull it and finding a place to park it for a few months to get oriented, I don't want to be burdened with trying to sell what's neither of us want or need. My divorce is amicable and he is willing to let me leave stuff in the house with the understanding that if I find I need or want it, I can come get it. I do not want to start this new life loaded down with "stuff". Maybe in a few months I'll have a heck of a garage sale!

The destination is only a small part of a journey.
