Leaving cal in an RV

Forced to sell my home, I am out of this state soon, and will live in a nice RV until I settle....wherever.
Seems to be a common story.
Not even interested in political discussions as to why.
If it needs explaining at this point, I don't know what to say.

Anyway, I lived in an RV many years ago.

A POS.

This one is super nice.
At 60, this is no party.
But I am going to make the best of it.

Best of luck on your new life adventure. There's a whole lot of country to explore for finding your next place to live. One thing full timing in our RV has taught us, is when we finally settle down, we won't need a big place. We've been comfortable in 400 sq-ft for two years now. We aren't sure where we are going to end up either.

Like any lifestyle there's plus and minuses.

Thanks. I did long haul trucking for a few years, so I know the country pretty well.
I just need to sort out things like, which discount clubs to join, what to carry with me(ebike), and getting to know the RV inside and out.
Should be an interesting summer.

The best bang for the buck RV club by far is Passport America which gives you 50% off at participating RV parks for only about $45 per year (they are always running deals, like get an extra 6 months for free, etc.). In my experience most Passport America participating rv parks, are either a bit older and trying to attract people, or they are brand new, or under new management and trying to draw in customers. In my region they are typically around $30-$35 per night regular rate, so $15-$18 PPA rate. The kicker is you have to look up each park individually either in the printed guide or on the web site as they same to each write their own restrictions, some require reservations to get the PPA rate, some only allow PPA on walk-up, some are off season only, some are weeknight only. Most are 1 night at PPA rate, but I have seen up to 3-4 nights at PPA rate allowed. Still at 50% off it pays for itself rather quickly, though note the number of participating PPA campgrounds varies considerably state to state with some states only having a handful if any at all, and others seeming to have one every 15-20 miles.

Don't give up your right to vote. Even transients have that right.

Good luck in your journey. Lots of nice places out there, I hope you find one. Come back with any questions you have. We have a lot of experience and like to share our knowledge with others. When we run out of that, we have some of the most believable wag's you've ever heard. Someone will set you right though.

A lot of people in CA envy your position. Hope you make the best of it. The road ahead of you cannot be worse than the road you are leaving behind.
