Another Chapter Begins..........
(Brandon, Florida, USA)
"That's it! I have had it".........that is sort of how it all started a few months ago. I have been an oncology nurse for 25+ years, and one day just decided that some changes would have to happen if I was to retire young and healthy.
I am 57 years old, and am in good health. I have zero debt other than my Florida home.
With that being said, the only reason that I have to work so hard is to support the house. Soooooooooooooo I started selling off all my possesions a few months ago.........other than my kayak, bike, and my trusty dog,.......those things will come with me........ and when I thought I had sold enough, and packed enough and hauled enough to Good will,(it was easier than I anticipated to let go of 'stuff'....... I put the house on the market on a Thursday and had a contract by Sunday!
So once the bank decides that my house is actually worth the loan the buyers are requesting, I will be buying my RV and readying myself for retirement and adventure.
My 2 biggest concerns are finances, though I have squirreled $$ away, when do you have 'enough'?.........and health insurance.......(the nurse in me!!)
Once I have solved those final hurdles I will be hitting the road.
I will be getting a travel trailer..........just bought a new TUNDRA to pull it, and oh yeah......one more slight problem.......will learn to pull it and back it up!!
(minor detail in the big picture of things!!)
Would love to hear any suggestions etc.
Love that I found this site.........will look forward to hooking up with other independent women living the dream!
