Living the Dream!!
After the Summer RTR was over, Cheri and I have set up camp in the Sierra NF near the little town of Shaver Lake, CA (Steve went back to WA to take care of some business, he will be back in August). We have a beautiful, secluded campsite with an incredible view down into the valley. Neither of us can believe we have this wonderful life. I’m in town now using the internet and it is packed with people escaping the city, the heat, and their boring lives for the weekend. BUT, we get to be up here for as long as we want. WOW, how lucky are we!?
And we owe it all to being vandwellers. We both live on next to no money because we don’t live in a house. Cheri is in a high-top Ford cargo van that looks like a mansion inside. I am in my 6×10 converted cargo trailer that I love. Cheri lives on $630 a month Social Security pension. I have more coming in a month, but living as cheaply as we do, we both are able to SAVE money every month, even with that little income. My whole life I was never able to save as much as I do now, even though I earned 3 times as much.
I am happier than I have ever been, have no stress in my life and I go camping 365 days a year. Does that sound like something you might be interested in? If so you have come to the right place. In this blog, just like my websites and forum, I have two goals:
- Inspire you to take a chance, follow your dreams and move into a vehicle, whether it is a car, van or RV.
- Educate you how to make it happen comfortably and economically.
Of course since this is a blog, I also hope to entertain you, but that remains to be seen!, So whether you are a long-time vandweller, a newbie to the life, or just a dreamer. follow us along our journey and hopefully be entertained, inspired, and educated. Bob
