And...here we go!
by Barbara O'Brien
Our goal for 2016 is to be full timing by January 1st. This is something we have planned and talked about for the last 30 years.
We started tent camping in 1978. Several years and 3 children later, we moved to a pop up tent trailer. We had many great family trips in that rig.
In 2000 as our children became college age, we traded the tent trailer for a 25 foot Terry Lite 5th Wheel. 15 years of awesome trips and adventures under our belt and we are ready! I retired from teaching in 2015. My husband will retire from full time work in April 2016 and will then do contract work (he is an electrical engineer in the nuclear industry).
We have purchased a 2015 34 ft Open Range Roamer 5th wheel and a 2016 Ford F-250 tow vehicle. Our house will go on the market by November 1st.
Now, we are selling all our stuff, handing items off to our children and getting our living as minimalist as possible! So excited to be working closer to our goal!
