Request for a subforum
#1
Would it be possible to add a subforum somewhere that deals with getting ready to go on the road, and/or physically making the transition?

I see this topic come up often in several different places, so it might be handy to centralize this information.

Not about building the vehicle, but the process of downsizing, de-cluttering, retiring, informing loved ones, financial preparations, relocating, etc. The entire 'background' logistical process of changing your life from home-based, sticks-and-bricks existence, to life on the road.

Issues, problems, setbacks, delays, processes, plans, dreams...all of that...in one sub-forum?

Some name suggestions:
  • Making the Transition

  • Moving Out, Moving Up

  • Goodbye Sticks and Bricks
Something along those lines.

Feedback? Yes? No?

Go jump in a river?

I know that there can't be a forum for everything but it seems that there are many posts on health issues that might be better served in a separate sub than in the 'off topic'. Just $0.02.

Sorry for the parallel topic.

I don't think anyone that is not living in a van should post anything. Smile

I think that's an excellent idea tx2sturgis. There's so many mechanical, how to subforms, and yes we definitely need them. But the transition, it gets scattered all over. Does it belong in heart to heat? Off topic? Topics that don't relate to van dwelling? It would be a good idea to have them in a centralized location.

So I guess everyone living in their car/rv/travel trailer/fifth wheel/etc. should just deactivate their account and move on to another forum???

Weight: the wonderful thing abt this forum is that most of the time there is no one telling me how I should run my life according to their expectations.

I felt like a outsider until I was reminded that the forum is called Cheap RV living. Tongue

I do agree that it sure would be nice to hear from more on the road.
