Back in the day when I owned a house and worked at my job as an 8th grade counselor and teacher, I used to inspire my students by giving them what I considered to be the ten most important two letter words for having a dream life.
I would present these magical words by way of a game of hangman so they could “discover” them for themselves. After 13 years of teaching over 5,000 students, I decided it was time I granted myself permission to take on the power of the words: “If it is to be, it is up to me” in living my own dream life.
The dream life for me: living in a motor home aka recreational vehicle (RV), working at jobs around the country, and experiencing a never-ending journey of adventure and discovery via the open road. It entailed selling my house and furniture, walking away from my career, and in short, learning a brand new way of life.
All that was over four years ago. Today I am still living my dream life but not without initially going through immeasurable difficulties and countless mistakes.
As I travel across America I meet so many people who want to know about living in a home on wheels and making a living while they’re at it. Hence, the idea for this blog.
