Default Interesting blog

Thought some of you might be interested in this blog post called Living vs. Maiking a Living. Currently the author and his wife are out exploring the USA in an Airstream camper. He is young enough to be my son.

Thanks for sharing! My husband wants an Airstream to travel in when we retire.

If I remember right, I think they redid the Airstream themselves.

Default Full circle...

Gailete - I'm honored, thanks for the share! This has definitely gone full circle as I was a regular reader and contributor to this forum for a few years. We used the tips from here and Mr. Money Mustache's forum to push us in our new direction.

We bought the Airstream and spent five months renovating it before quitting our jobs and heading out on our trip last October. We've spent the last nine months pulling it around the US and Canada and experiencing our country. We're currently in Alaska and on the "last leg" of our trip.

If anyone has any questions full time travel, Airstream renovations or successfully living in a 100 sq ft space with your spouse, let me know!

You are very welcome Dan. I read your posts when I have time, but that seems to be a scare commodity at this point in my life.
