Yeah i have a crap memory and reading isn't one of my best subjects .. well not reading but comprehention. although i do enjoy it from time to time so i do intend on at least picking up a few books to kill time out there. keep my mind off things.. but i do think about this stuff a lot. and ill check out those links you posted. also its a nice thing to read that i'm not the only one who thinks about this. And youre right.. i guess most of my worry is about having that sense of community. growing up i've always been a part of a social community and i don't want to lose that just because i want to choose a different path in my life. i have a feeling when i get out on the road i'll be working on "gatherings" a lot. in different places that i travel. also the post about just waiting for it to come to you.. i guess we differ in that. I believe if you want something, even a relationship that yo uhave to grab it. i know people always say just be patient and wait and once you stop looking , that something will find you... well.. not if youre 2000 miles away in the middle of the woods by yourself... LOL.. i believe we have to go out and get what we want and id like to do that (hence me even being here in the first place trying to get into the lifestyle of van dwelling)

I agree with Willy--My dog is my best buddy, but i guess if you aren't an animal person that would be a problem....
   I think once you get things going you'll see that it doesn't have to be a lonely journey. Campgrounds, campsites, small towns always have great bars and grills, it's all about new things and discovery.  I've only run into 2 people that were turds in my 25ish years tent camping.  idk, hope that helps?

You know I used to be a lot more social. The last big thing I did was swing dancing. That kept me out at least 4 nights a week, not counting major events, and/or parties for one reason or another. It's not that I don't enjoy mixing it up with a crowd any longer, but I've really come to value my alone time. I guess I'm just over it really. 

When the day comes to leave. I've stockpiled quite a few books on my kindle to help pass the time. I plan on getting another dog where me and my beagle will be busy training the new pup. Hunting for rabbits and other assorted small game will also keep us busy/feed the dogs. I'm thinking of writing a book so the research for it will take up some time. 

The dogs will keep me company, and I'm pretty sure I'll get my convo on when stopping for gas or groceries. Mostly I intend to get that need filled at meets or visiting family and friends.

Yes, I am!  My husband is in a nursing home and I visit him every day.  He is the love of my life and I am not in the market.  Just making a light comment.  Sorry it was misinterpreted.

I've been extremely fortunate to have the same travelling companion since 1973; married since 1979. But she's one of a kind.  I couldnt be happy with anyone else.

If you decide to get a pet of some kind, I think you should name it 'Glory'.  'Gutz and Glory', get it?    You could put that on your van, too.
