Are you really happy as a nomad?

16 months now and loving it. Going back to a permanent dwelling would feel like being put in jail.

I've lived about 3 years in two RV's but at the same campground.  I did so in part to save money when I separated from my wife and also to try out an RV lifestyle.   I love it for the kind of people that do this and for the simplicity of it.  

In a few years, I will be quitting my job and taking my small business on the road for income while I live as a nomad in a travel trailer.   I can't wait.   It will be about 3 and a half years before my gf's youngest finishes high school, then we are leaving the matrix to be free.  :-)

Once you hit the road and get out of that RV park you may wonder why you waited so long.

Living in an RV park    VS..   Living off grid as a nomad on the road. Traveling from BLM to national forest to BLM again with the changing weather.
Is nothing like an RV park.


Step one;
turn the key.
And just do it!

Step two;
park in the desert at least a 1/4 mile or more from another camper.

Step three;
step outside at 2 am on a clear night and look up.

No doubt!!  I can't wait, but deconstruction of my old life is in the works (prepping and selling a house, finishing a divorce, helping the kids move into their new lives as they both just got their career positions as paramedics, and the gf's son who first needs to finish high school, then we hit the road).

My gf and I are going to be taking practice runs over the next couple years.   She has a truck and a T@B camper that I'm putting solar on now.  Her son is going to Africa this summer for a couple months so we will hit the road for a few weeks.

Yes;
I completely understand. I was 5 years in trailer parks, after my second divorce. "thank you Lord"

It takes a little time to tie up all the loose ends and start a new life... Been there.

Sounds like you got a good plan going.

I started doing it because my partner left me and I've been too depressed to work. If we lived in a country that took care of its citizens I would be happy to have a tiny home somewhere. I really just do this because if I live on nothing I can't be hurt too bad by people abandoning me

Sorry to hear that. See thread below for some encouraging words given to another that you may gain some benefit from.
