We are a couple of simple people who have worked hard their entire lives so far with the only results being car payments, mortgage and so on. It never seems to end. Who are we working for was the final question we came up with together?? We just bought our first RV in spring 2016 and came to the realization that we love the lifestyle. After doing a lot of searching and investigating we have realized that it is more than possible to do this but very attainable!
Originally we decided on spring 2020 to make the jump but the way life is and never knowing if you have a tomorrow we have pushed up our date to October 2017. That’s right, we are heading out just after thanksgiving here in Canada. Early spring this year the house goes up for sale and we will take the time until closing to fully downsize.
Then comes the fun! We can’t just afford to drive around the rest of our lives (Though that would be nice) so our plan is to join the many thousands of others and find workamping jobs in the summer somewhere in Canada then during the off season find a suitable location in the U.S. To volunteer for the winter at a state park.
To help offset our income loss we are hoping to document our journey on video through our You Tube channel with our show titled “Taking Chances : An RV Revolution”. Our first episode will air early in 2017 with an introduction to us and then our first practice journey out west. Check out our channel and subscribe, thanks.
The both of us will also be writing full time blogs on our journey and keeping up a facebook page and twitter account for the site. (Colleen will do that as I have never twitted yet!) You will see the odd ad on our site as well, I apologize now for that but we are hoping that this too will help offset our bruised income.
I also have been a stock photographer for some time (on the side) and have been working on a site area where I will sell the images as royalty free images for magazines, web sites etc. Check it out if you like HERE
We hope you join us on our journey wherever it takes us. Feel free to contact us with any suggestion for improvement. If you are from a park our site and are looking for workampers, please feel free to contact us and we can send you our resume. Let the journey begin!
