We’re getting an RV! The stay-at-home, don’t-go-out, outdoors-is-icky couple will soon own a Recreational Vehicle. But that’s not the main story… the real news is that this RV is going to be our new home!
Yes, we are downsizing our home by about 96%—if home means the walls around us. If home means where we live, then we’re upsizing by a factor of 2.2 billion from our current 2 acres. The whole of North America will be our home!
When we took an honest look at what we really need in order to be happy, we decided that our big house and belongings accumulated over 14 years were an anchor keeping us from exploring very far or often. For us, the thought of traveling to see and explore all the wonders in the U.S. (and Canada) captured our imaginations. We’ve realized that we have a chance to reboot our lives and take them in a completely new direction!
We’ve wondered if it’s a mid-life crisis. We’ve wondered if we’re crazy. But this isn’t some impulse or whim—we’ve been discussing it for a while, and know we have a lot more research and learning to do before we really take the plunge. But we’re more excited now than we have been about almost anything before, and this just feels right to us!
This isn’t going to be a vacation… it’s going to be life as usual, just with slightly different scenery every week or two.above: home for the past 13 years
