Well, After pretty much taking a bath x10 on our home .. the wife and I decided that it was just not worth it. I ended up with Cancer and treated for it in January .. so that was also a deciding factor that life is just too damn short to be so stressed about things.
We ended up surrendering the house after years of trying to get the finance company to work with us. That alone is a long story .. but to make it the short version .. we went bankrupt in 2002 .. we tried and tried to reaferm (how do you spell that???? lol)on the house and the finance company refused. All we wanted is for them to show that we where current and in good standing on the credit reports. Come to find out we where one of the illegal loans and thats why they would not work with us. so we told them to stick it and gave it back to them .. they cant do titally squat about it .. as it was under bankruptcy anyway ..
Anyhow .. again after the cancer thing .. it just was not worth the stress and the wife and I decided that we wanted to live life .. so we bought a 2011 Keystone Springdale .. and 2011 Dodge Ram 2500, bought the wife a 2008 Jeep Liberty .. and off to Texas for 2 years .. than we are going to travel from Texas to Utah in the Summer and Utah to Texas for the winter months ..
Wish you all the best in your life adventure! Enjoy and soak it in!

I decided to go go full-timing in December of '10. Did a lot and I mean a lot of research before deciding on a 17' Casita travel trailer and the right tow vehicle for it.
Got the truck (an '01 Dodge Dakota) back in October of last year through Carmax, and found the perfect used Casita at the end of February through Craigslist. One week later it was mine, then I spent the next just over 7 weeks doing some maintenance stuff on it before moving into it at the end of April.
I've been living in it for nearly two weeks so far and am loving it. I won't consider myself a true full-time RVer though until I'm actually traveling in it, that'll be later this year. What an adventure.
If even 'the road less traveled' doesn't work for you, start creating your own
