    You can trade work for a camping spot if you want, or not. It's not just national parks, but RV resorts as well that offer workamping opportunities. They give you a spot and a few bucks, and you give them x-hours per week. They all prefer older workers who are going to be responsible and mature. For a retired couple, this to me is an ideal situation.

    We are looking at Northern Idaho (Sandpointe to Coeur d'Alene area) and if we do it, we won't regret it.

    My grandparents on my bio-Dad's side lived in Coeur d'Alene when I was a kid. My memory is that it was pretty nice, but this was 40 years ago.

    I came out a decent fit. The issue will be if the better half would fall into that category. I think I'll be able to convince her to give it a shot in 2019, when she retires.

    Rent an RV and go on a few trips. See if it's right for you. There's no law that says you have to go whole hog with it right off the bat.

    I'm on a few Facebook groups for RVers, including a full time group. Lots of post saying how people would love to do it. Then you have the people that have decided to full time travel and are panicking about going from a 2K sqft home into a motorhome. Decluttering isn't for the faint of heart. Many respond to the people on the fence that they wished they had done it sooner.

    I always tell people it isn't for everyone.

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?

    Too many things I WONT get rid of to do something like that. ( Primarily things that go bang )

    I've managed a work around for that same issue.

    But you're coming along so well!

    I'm a minimalist at heart and not sentimental about my belongings. Downsizing into the motorhome was EZPZ for me.

    I got "good fit". Foxhound will like this answer...it's a far cry from the first we heard of you all doing this. I was like NO WAY. EVER. Like in NEVER.

    *sigh* There are a lot of details that would need to be worked out first, but I really could see myself doing this on at least a part time basis. Maybe one day!
