" After David passed away "
Sorry for your lost.  Thanks for sharing your story.
" 90+F heat "  Thats why the SnowBird life intriques me.

" When it broke down a few friends pooled together a loan 
and I got a "conversion van" "
Friends are like gold.

" Food banks " yes I have to look into this more.

" get a job any job "
For me I've been workin for the last 25 yrs
so I could do with a 9-16 mos vacation. 

Like Chris Penn says paraphrased: 
 Life is about experiences not working 9-5   , 40 + hrs / wk til ur decrepit ,
have no interesting stories to tell & too disabled to accomplish your dreams.

" be kind to others and they will be kind to you. "
it doesnt always happen like this.
Its human to get irritated when people wrong you.

Oh I got that post from reddit & after the quotes put
my own story in.

" Perhaps Silver should have made it clearer that this topic was copied from Reddit. "
BC Guy is wise .

I can read. The post/link said it was from reddit (whatever that is). My assumption is that you were (or someone you knew was) in a similar situation (either all or some) and wanted info based on the story. The biggest thing for going fulltime is to be debt free. Even if you are staying long term in one area, you need to be debt free. You need a savings fund. For the emergency repair or similar. You will need tires. But I look at it like a house. There was always something that needed repaired on any of the houses we owned (or they owned us). No different with the bus (or your vans).

But I have little patience for those who will not take a lower paying job yet still complain about their lack of job. When I start my next job, I will be taking a pay cut of about $4 per hour and about half the hours. Stuff happens. I will use the extra time to do other things, like get the bus ready to move again and build up inventory for the jewelry business. Sometimes you just need more eggs in more baskets. And maybe some apples and peaches too.

Did you hear about that man who was director for Jim Carey,
bought 5 mil $ house it didnt make him happy.
so he sold it & moved into a mobile home park !

" We live, we die, and like the grass and trees, 
renew ourselves from the soft earth of the grave.

 Stones crumble and decay, 
faiths grow old and they are forgotten,
 but new beliefs are born.

 The faith of the villages is dust now... but it will grow again... like the trees. "

I just learned this.  So powerful !

" Hold on to what is good,
Even if it's a handful of earth.

Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it's a tree that stands by itself.

SUPPORTHold on to what you must do,
Even if it's a long way from here.

Hold on to your life,
Even if it's easier to let go.

Hold on to my hand,
Even if someday I'll be gone away from you. "
