Welcome To The RV-Dreams Journal!
This page is the portal to get you to very detailed information about our full-timing lifestyle.
Click here for our daily RV-Dreams Journal. This will take you to a daily account of our adventures since we hit the road on August 3, 2005. Hope you join us for a daily read! :)
Below you will find links to Journal entries made from January 1, 2005 to August 2, 2005. These entries were done every few days and take you back to what it was like for us as we eased ourselves into the full-timing lifestyle. "Eased" is not exactly the word we would use on some days. :)
Finally, Our Decision is a detailed account of the last 6 months of 2004 that ultimately led us to our full-timing decision.
Journal Entries Prior To Departure (Covering January 1, 2005 - August 2, 2005)
Prior to our departure, we did Journal entries every few days to update our progress from the time we made our decision up until our departure date. There is some good information (and some pretty funny moments) in those entries which include 1) making the decision, 2) buying a rig, 3)selling our house, 4) dispersing our stuff, 5) our first experience pulling an RV and camping in one, 6) moving into the RV, 7) trudging through the last days of work, and 8) our last week before the adventure began.
