Howdy and welcome aboard. Glad you joined us. You could post some questions you may have over in the Fulltiming section of the forum. I'm sure you'll get plenty of info there. Hope all works out as I'm sure it will and have a great time traveling and enjoy the lifestyle.

Hi Greendragon, welcome to IRV2. I don't know if there is anyway to avoid the stress. We second guessed ourselves several times before we shut the door on the sticks and bricks for the last time. We had a trip planned cross country to visit family and friends along the way, so we had something to look forward to. We learned so much as we made our way to CA. We are loving the fulltime lifestyle and look forward to doing it for years to come. Good luck and safe travels.

Howdy and welcome! If you haven't already done so, you might check out the Escapees website and forum; it's devoted to full-timing. I understand your wife's concern; I know full-timing would never work for me. Good luck to you.

I can assure you that it will be an adventure.

Keeping this quote in mind has helped keep me sane (and actually quite relaxed)

An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.
