We run into a lot of people who waited to retire before hitting the road. They always say, "We wish we'd done this sooner!" So, don't let that pension hold you back. There are literally thousands of ways to earn enough as you travel. These RV lifestyle resources will help you think about how to make working from the road work for you.
Finding your community on the road becomes easier when you volunteer side-by-side with others who share your values and passions. Volunteering and doing work-trade from the comfort of our own little camper is one of the best gifts we've given ourselves.

"Is that camper vintage or retro?" "Way to keep it classic!" " Where can I buy one?" " I traveled across the country with my grandparents in a camper just like that in 1962!" "How long did it take you to restore it?" "You look like a postcard rolling down the road!"
The list of comments and questions we get on a regular basis is quite entertaining! We always say Hamlet makes easier friends than we do.
