Tom & Me
My fiance and I just completed a 16-day trip from Maryland to Florida in a 31' Winnebago Minnie generously loaned to us by my longest friends. We had a wonderful time and now I am really itching to fulfill the Number One item on my personal
Bucket List -- that being to get this little farm sold so I can HIT THE ROAD!
I divorced in 2007 following a long-term marriage. Thanks to my attorney, I was able to get this farm free and clear and for the longest time, I thought I would just stay here until I get too old to take care of it anymore. Well, I'm looking at my 59th birthday in a little over a month, and while I'm not too old, I'm just TIRED OF ALL THE WORK AND UPKEEP it requires. Despite the downturn in real estate sales, I'm looking to get out from under it. In the meantime, I am researching different types of RVs and travel trailers.
On our recent trip, we looked at every possible combination and class of RV and trailer...and I was FLOORED at the level of luxury (and prices) of those "big bus type" RVs. Heck, they are nicer than MY HOUSE...but I surely don't require anything that big or that luxurious.
Tom is a little less enamored of the idea of going full-time at this than I am, but we have agreed that if it's something I really want to do, he will find a small place close to where he works and come visit me when I get somewhere I like and plan to stick for awhile. He will also take care of my two cats. I plan to board my lovely Tennessee Walking Horse for a year; then if I decide to settle somewhere, I will have her moved out to wherever I am.
Any stories of how you got started and what you learned along the way would be particularly helpful to me. I have lots of questions and will continue reading here in order to glean as much information as possible.
Thanks in advance for your kind responses!
