Looking Forward to Full-Timing
At age 59 I am looking forward to collecting my SS when I am 62. Life is too short and you don't hear of too many people on their deathbeds saying, "gee, I wish I had spent more of my life at work".
I am as poor as poor can be, but if I retire and don't work, half of my SS will go toward supporting my home--rent, utilities, insurance. For less than half of that amount I can hit the road in a small travel trailer and go where I like.
It's just me and my life and needs are simple so I can go and do as I like. So I will spend the next few years preparing and the years between 62-65 to prepare and make the transition. No, I won't have the financial wherewithal to do the cushy senior citizen RVing experience, but I will enjoy the lifestyle of a voluntary homeless tumbleweed.
