The Next Chapter

img_0243

I have gone and done it…I have purchased a run down travel trailer with the intent of creating something exceptional to live in for many years to come. I have my work cut out for me. The roof has had leaks, the floor is spongey, everything except the air conditioner (which works!) is probably from 1976. The trailer cost $1,400 as is. I am paying more than that to have a new roof put on it. Then I shall take possession and get to work removing the dirty, moldy mess. While I am waiting on the roof, I will scout out a proper home for it for the next year or so…and find a friend with a pick-up to move it for me.

Is not every traveler excited and trepidatious as the journey begins? What adventures await? Stay tuned!

    Oh, I WISH I could get away with doing that! But with 5 kids and 3 cats… I don’t think it would turn out very well. I look forward to seeing what you do with the place. Maybe it will inspire me enough to take the plunge!

    Your readers have, no doubt, great faith in your abilities — at least I do! So, this sounds like such a grand adventure & how lovely you’re taking the rest of us along with you, vicariously though it may be!

    Oh the excitement!

    We are looking at yachts for longer trips around northern Europe (about 3-6 mths at a time) in the next year or two, but not for permanent living… love the limited space options lol. It needs to be handy for a dog, too, but the cat gets to stay home… fun fun fun!!
