Can't Wait to Fulltime

Can't Wait to Fulltime

My husband and I are trying to sell our house in the shuswap, it's taking a while. We already have a truck on hold and a Fifth wheel in mind. We can't wait to test if we are going to like this lifestyle. We love to travel and see new places. We have already talked about where we would like to go first. We would appreciate any information anyone could give us. The thought of being out of debt is liberating! Having a house with a line of credit, and all the trappings of a house is suffocating! My husband is retired and we have an income coming in and have already talked about budgeting and find that we will be able to do this. We will most likely put our furniture and things in storage. Has anyone done this and had trepidations? Any info would be appreciated, thanks!

Full Time??

We did this a few years ago. I'm including my suite101 link and you can read a bit about our life on wheels.

Enjoy your life on wheels.

House Empty TT in Driveway! :)
by: Calud

I just finished selling off the last of my furniture, like your husband I am retired 5 years ago in January and wanted to do this as soon as I hit the retired rolls I am 46 years old, retired early but I got married and life got in the way.

Now I am single and sold all my furniture and have sold my house FINALLY!! (one of the lucky ones) and in April I will hit the road officially in my Uhaul ct-13 TT and my Jeep wrangler tow vehicle!.

I have gone on a couple of multi-state runs and have learned that there is a lot of "retirees" doing this lifestyle and its great! everyone is friendly and helpful.

I cant wait to be free on closing in April! to hit the road where my jeep takes me!
