The Plan 1.0

Like the title says, the plan for the future is to Explore with Beth. A little more specific is that Beth and I plan to wind up things here and go on the road full-time RVing as soon as we can. As you might guess that is a lot easier said than done, but we are on our way. There are two main efforts we have begun.

1) Divesting
After 40 years of married life and over 20 in this one spot we have collected a lot of stuff. I freely admit I love stuff and have quite a collection. In order to go on the road all this stuff has to be either sold or packed up and stored. So far it seems most of my stuff has been identified as junk and will be sold off, while most of Beth’s stuff has been designated honored treasures that must be carefully packed and stored away. We have made some progress, but it will take a while longer.

2) Full-time RV prep
While we have a wonderful little travel trailer, it is just not big enough to live out of for any length of time, so we need a bigger one. In order to pull a bigger trailer we need a bigger tow vehicle (TV in RV speak). Fortunately, with the help of a good friend we located and purchased a new (to us) TV, a 2007 Ford F-150 pickup truck. Now we need to sell my Toyota 4Runner and our current Coachman Clipper travel trailer and pick out a new, bigger one.

While there are a thousand other things that need to be done, these are the two we are focusing on right now, along with trying to enjoy the holiday season.

While adventure is surely out there, it takes a little time and energy to get to it.  But we are getting closer!
