Mega Yard Sale

I wanted to share some photos of our Mega Yard Sale.

The sale was a huge success. The sale was planned for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

We sold over 90% of everything on Friday and the other 10% on Saturday; we didn’t even need to have the sale on Sunday.

Our neighbors are the best…
For two weeks we filled both sides of our garage completely full with everything you could imagine.

We bought a Coach

Wow, we have looked at a lot of junky RVs in the last couple of months!!
We were looking primarily for a diesel rig but we decided to keep all of our options on the table when all the diesel coaches we looked at in our price range were either too small or too old.  It feels weird calling it a coach when our entire life we’ve always called them motorhomes or RVs. We have learned a lot about RVs in the last couple of months. It's obvious some people have much different ideas of "clean and in great shape" then we do. This RV (I guess I should start calling it a coach) was the cleanest of all we looked at. Check it out.  It's BEAUTIFUL !!

We have sold our Motor Home

We’ve done all of our research and have educated ourselves about the advantages and disadvantages of each type of Motorhome.

These are motor homes types that were rejected 

Fifth Wheels - Two reasons; the expense of buying a heavy duty pickup truck and a fifth wheel would be far too expensive. Reason #2, Laurie would never pull a trailer.  She has pulled the jet ski behind our pickup truck and complained she didn’t like it at all, not to mention I don’t care for it myself.
Travel Trailers - Same 2 reasons as listed with the Fifth wheels.
Class C - Our first RV was a class C and we liked it very much except the limited storage space, not to mention these are way too small to live in full time.
Class B - These were not even a consideration as they are way too small to live in full time.

We’ve decided to stick with the class A style Motorhome.

Emotions in planning

Emotions in planning Full Time RVing

Sadness, fear, and uncertainty are some of the emotions we have felt in planning our full time RVing adventure. The emotions are not so much sadness, but fear and uncertainty. What are we doing? Are we crazy? Second thoughts creep in every couple of days, what if this is a mistake?

Rising Fuel costs:

The challenges we face seem to be a little different than the challenges of the people that have done this before us. The economy we live in today is filled with so much more doubt and fear of the future than in the past. Even as fuel prices keep going up every day, today’s economy will not keep us from following our dreams.

Obstacles & Budget

Full Time RVing Obstacles

We believe most people never pursue their dreams because they are trapped in a vicious cycle of living beyond their means. Why do we need to have the latest electronic gadgets, the big house, the nice car, and all of the other crap we really don’t need? So many people are living from check to check and are just one unexpected event away from losing everything. Just one unexpected illness, injury or accident could leave most people with nothing. It’s hard to admit but we are probably one of those people, as are 80-90 percent of people in today’s economy. We all get caught up in the day to day grind.a free campsite, usually with utilities included and some additional wages.

Sell the house and Everything

We've made the decision to sell everything, It’s not a decision that was made easily. The furniture and all of our personal belongings will have to go. We are not even considering a storage unit. I'm sure there will be a few family heirlooms that can/will to go to a family members home for safe keeping. We will both have to agree on what that will be, it can't be much.
