Thread: Am I crazy???

    Default On the Road

    I am seriously considering selling everything I own and packing up my girls, (ages 6 & 9) in an RV and becoming an American nomad. I know I must sound like some kind of crazy hippie to even think about this, but I feel trapped by the material lifestyle I am living. I am a secondary school English teacher with a Masters in Education, and have MANY other skills, including crafting, sewing and cooking. I also have a Colorado Business license... (if I wanted to be a roadside peddler, would I need some kind of interstate commerce license?) I guess you could say that the only thing holding me back at this point is trying to work out the logistics of such a transient lifestyle. How does one make money on the road? Are there others out there that I can hookup with to pool resources or barter with for food and supplies? Are there others out there who are doing this? Or am I REALLY nuts? If there is anyone out there with any answers at all to my questions, please reply!

    I am seriously considering selling everything I own and packing up my girls, (ages 6 & 9) in an RV and becoming an American nomad for a while. I know I must sound like some kind of crazy hippie to even think about this, but I feel trapped by the material lifestyle I am living. I need a break!

    Rachel,

    There are a number of resources that will make the transition from where you are now to living (and prospering!) on the road. This site, (www.roadtripamerica.com) is full of them. One of the sites you should check out is www.escapees.com Also take a look at some of the guides for making $$ on the road found elsewhere in the site.

    Default Go for it:

    I guess whether you are crazy or not depends on how long "a while" is. I say spend a little time researching and planning, buy lots of coloring books and crayons, and go for it. Just don't be afraid to stop when YOUR advneture starts to wear or YOUR children.
