Why Wait?

Life is too short and the world is wide. Why wait until you retire to do the things you want to do? And this is if you're lucky enough to make it to retirement age AND if you survive RIGHT after you retire. Do you know how many people I've heard of who retired, looking forward to their time off, to finally be able to do what they want to do, only to die shortly after? Um . . . quite a few. 

Not us.

The hubster and I see things differently and so do others who have done what we're working towards and embarking upon. 

Where there's a will, there's a way.

For sure.

I've never been materialistic. Maybe because I was basically on my own at the age of 16 and had $30.00--if that--to live on for a week. I'd go to the grocery store with only $10.00 to spend. I lived off of a pound of hamburger, Ramen noodles, and frozen burritos. Sometimes I was forced to go to a food bank. I know how to survive on very little and so does Kevin (hubster). He was in a similar situation. 

It sucked.


It made us stronger, resilient, and resourceful.

We'll never ever forget what it was like to be poor, and frankly, I'll do whatever I can to avoid that situation again.

So Kevin and I have experience in being dirt poor. We also have the experience of owning a nice house, classic car . . . basically what society has drilled into everyone as the American dream. 

We were in debt.

On the outside to others we had it made.


Kevin's job was a stress pit.

If he died, he'd be replaced with a snap of a finger.

Fuck that.

We're not waiting to live the life we want.

I'm a planner.

And I'm not afraid to admit, I need security.

Finacial security.

So we wait.

We renovate the RV.

Make it our own which will be vintage/hippie/boho style.

Make sure it's mechanically sound.

Get the solar panels on so we can have free energy.

I love free energy.

Save, Save. Save.

Sell our house.

In the meantime, I find ways to make money online through my books, freelance writing, Etsy store, and so forth.

I'm not going to lie, I wish we can leave now, but I'm a planner. 

Did I say that already?

We need to do this right.

Oh, and I just bought a camera so we can start filming our documentary. However, I won't upload it to Youtube until we go, that way everything will be seamless and flow together. 


We're going to start filming soon.

How exciting is that?


Anyway, I'll keep you updated on our progress and the progress of book 2 to Legends of Deceit. 




  1. Thanks for sharing this! What an inspiration! I want to do the same for my partner and I. I'm a planner as well. There is just more to life than working 9-5!! I plan to seek out as much as I can for as long as I can and enjoy every minute!

    Can't wait to follow your journey!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, and I agree with you. Life is more than working 9-5. We weren't born to just pay bills and die. :) I'm looking forward to sharing my journey with you and everyone else. Once the snow melts and the weather warms up, we're going to start renovating the RV. I'll take pictures and share them on here. The videos won't be posted on our YouTube Channel until we leave. I'll post here when they're up and ready to watch. :D
