I am a 35 year old single woman. My life has always been slightly crazy (probably has to do with me being a little crazy) and I have always wanted to see the country. However life always made it difficult to do too much traveling due to little vacation time.
I have recently been dislocated from my job but I have some money saved up. I am seriously considering taking the money and going on the road.
I have found an '87 Winnebago Elandan that I am probably going to buy and hit the road in. She's not pretty on the outside but nothing physically wrong with her.
For work I am going to try to work through a national temp agency and start back to sewing and selling dresses either online or out of the RV.
My only concern is... I have never really stayed in an RV. I am currently living in an 8 x 10 bedroom so I think I can deal with minimal space. Matter of fact the RV has more room than I currently have. The maintenance part kind of scares me. Since I am going at this alone I am trying to prepare myself as much as possible. I am unsure what "Basic Needs" kind of stuff I will need: Extension cords, hoses, etc.
I know it kind of crazy to want to do this on my own. But I think it would be a great experience and now I won't have the "I wish I had..." feeling when I get older. I am still young(ish), I want to have fun, see the world, and hopefully not have to go home with my tale between my legs. What suggestions can y'all give me? Any? (Please don't say "don't go!") I am trying to read up on the experience but I'm almost at a lose as to where to start.
Also, what do you do for internet? That is one thing I really don't want to give up. I have a ton of questions but I am afraid there are questions I should be asking and I don't know to ask them.
Ok, so perhaps this isn't a story yet, but I am hoping it will be soon. I am very excited to start this quest and to meet all the amazing people that are out there in the world.
