Downsizing nearly drove me insane – until I met a woman who knows how to kick downsizing's ass.
If there's one thing I've actually, finally learned in my 5+ decades of life it's that big changes of any kind very often take longer than we'd like. After we told everyone our plan to live in an RV and go wherever, people constantly asked when we were going to leave. It was a source… Continue reading RV Life, Phase One: The comfort zone
An e-mail here, a phone call there and BOOM – we sold the house and found a cool place to land. We're not leading a charmed life (because #RV), but it feels damn close.
