A Touch of Crazy

As we discussed our plans to purchase a house with those in our lives that deeply care about us, we sensed an overall concern. They were excited and would support us, but they weren't sure if it was the best time and/or place. We looked at several houses, one that we really like, but was uncomfortably high in price. The rest of them didn't work. They were decent, just not what we had imagined.

Unsure if we really wanted to buy a house here, now, we decided to wait a bit to look at any more houses.

Then we got an idea. Wouldn't it be simply fantastic if we could purchase a cheap, yet reliable, motor home and travel around the country for six months.

We began to think about the people we know around the united states that we could visit, and the costs of doing such a crazy thing. With Tony's unique job, he would still be able to work as long as he has internet, so we would live off of his income. The more we thought about it, the less crazy and the more exciting it became.

The funniest thing is that those same people that weren't sure if it would be the wisest time to buy a house are the ones who are fully supporting this idea and think it would be an awesome adventure, and this is the perfect time in our lives to do something a little unexpected.

So, we are planning and hoping. Our current plan is to start in August of 08. My brother is getting married in South Carolina, and we figure that is the best time to start, and will give us ample time to prepare and save. We plan on visiting the west for the majority of the time. We have no definite journey route yet, but we have a list of people to contact that we would want to stay with for a day or so, and we have also found tons of information online about the RVing lifestyle.

If you want to help us out and know of anyone who has a motor home that they want to get rid of, feel free to let us know. Or if you know anyone in a neat location that might be able to let us park a rig on their driveway for a day or so let us know.

We plan on taking lots of pictures, video, and are very excited to see how this unfolds.
