Making Plans

With a lot of luck and a little planning my sweetie and I hope to spend our retired years in a small, cozy house on wheels. Ideally we'd like to live in an RV year-round. A few years ago we visited the Grand Canyon for the first time. It was breath taking and I was a little sad that it took me 35-ish years to see it.

Some people dream of traveling the world. Seeing different countries and cultures. I just want to see the mountains of Colorado or the green of Central Park. I don't want to see it by way of airports. I want to see the small towns of my own country. Back roads with no destination in mind and no set time to be anywhere. The idea of sharing it with my best friend makes me giddy.  He's traveled much more than I have and he is excited to share places that will be new to me. Maybe we'll discover new places together. I want to find the not so tourist-y places that are tucked into out of the way villages and towns. I expect to visit National Parks too but I'm more eager to discover our own places.

It's a lofty dream. It's more than a few years off but we're confident that we can make it happen. I probably should start pinching pennies pretty soon, I understand the fuel tanks on tiny houses with wheels are pretty big and expensive to fill.


  1. I want to do the same thing! Jason wants to live by the water with a boat. Sigh.

    I firmly believe that the journey is sometimes better than the destination, and what better way to live than have every day be part of the journey? I think you've got the right idea.

  2. Sounds nice until you two get completely sick of one another! I guess keep the dueling laptops :)
