Wow It's been two years since I started this and well posted anything. I would like to get back to my planning. We are still looking to the future of FullTime or at least extended time RVing. My Financial plans are still in order. I would love to say we are gaining on things but the best I can say is we aren't further in a hole. Had almost 10,000 in vehicle repairs in 2015 and yeah that hurts. The good news is because my pay down plans we should come out even for the year or maybe even a bit better. Jeesh sometimes!!!

We went out to Hershey again this year and once again had a great time. Hubby is more on board this time and I think if we were in a different place financially He would have us getting ready to head out. It's like something really clicked for him. This has been my dream forever and Paul has played along (there was a period he wasn't interested anymore) But something about this trip and some heartfelt conversations between us has giving him the "bug."  We talked over a weekend about just what FullTime RVing meant to me. What I imagined our lives would be like and that I think helped him. He had gotten the idea that when I said Rving it would mean travel travel travel. But no that is not at all what I want to do. To me ideally we will be in a financial position to be able to live on our pensions and SS and volunteer at the many National Parks. And with this I mean get a position with one for several months, a season or heck even a year. Explore to our hearts content the surrounding area and then Find the next destination and do it again. If we cannot secure a position at a park then do Workamping at a Campground for a period of time. I want to stay put in each place for at least a couple of months.

So with Paul on board, we have started to play with the information on Workamper News (http://www.workamper.com/) Great site by the way if this is the lifestyle you are looking into. They have exercises, questions and courses geared to help you make the right decisions and learn what you need to know before you start as well as an avenue to find positions once you are on the road. 

So on with the planning!!!
