I’ve always had a penchant for this wanderlust lifestyle and in recent years really embraced a more minimalistic way of living. Thankfully my family and friends completely understand and support me in this nomadic life.
I grew up in Carrollton, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, and moved away in my twenties to Florida for a short time and then to Ohio for several years before I landed in Seattle, Washington. Besides a couple of short moves for work, I lived there for the last 15 years in the Seattle area.
Several years ago, I lived in a 480-square foot apartment in the downtown Seattle area and fell in love with the minimalistic living. It felt so freeing, relaxed, and simple. Then I decided to purchase my first home just north of Seattle. Literally the day I moved in I was still thinking about when I could RV full-time and continue to dream of that life.
For about five years, prior to traveling full-time in my RV, I had been researching the RV lifestyle in preparation for when the time came to make that transition. The house, at 1,800 square feet, felt claustrophobic, coupled with working remotely in my home, I seemed to never leave it. I yearned for more freedom.
After a year of living in my new home, I decided to sell the home and sell everything in it so I could fulfill this dream of RVing full-time. I was nervous about the learning curve of a completely different lifestyle, maintaining an RV, and where would I sleep each night. I had some fear wrapped up in traveling as a solo female and the safety of being alone on the road.
However, I embraced my fears and dove head first into overcoming this challenge. The reward on the other side of breaking through my fears was this beautiful, engaging, and transformative life.
