    Hi
    When full timing what do you do all day?? Become an alcoholic? Sex addict? Build model planes? End up going postal?

    I will be going full time, sort off... I'm still going to work, my plan is to park up somewhere and go to work then stay in it at the night time, i will keep moving the home so as not to raise too much attention to myself, i also have a company car so it will have to go on an A frame.

    I might rent a barn if i can find a cheap enough rent, then i have a sort of base, i hope to save money and certainly not spend anywhere near the £1600 a month mentioned on here!!:Eeek:

    Do you think i will succeed??? :RollEyes:

    Perhaps but if you are working in the same area all the time then try to find a friendly CL/CS owner or two who will let you stay 28 days at a time.

    It is much nicer coming home from work to a proper base on a campsite/field and it would be much cheaper than renting a barn - probably around 50 squid a week ish.

    This is what we do, we work for a while then travel for a while. Unfortunately we haven't travelled much in the last year as we are saving for a bigger van but when we get it, try stopping us!

    Good luck >:)

    EDIT: P.S. Welcome to the forums!

    Hi

    That all depends on ones idea of what escaping the rat race is, we presently live full time and both of us are working..

    The difference is we work because we want to, not to fuel a bloated mortgage.
    If we dont like where we are working we simply move on and find something else a luxury very few of the people we work alongside can afford.

    at present we are working to save for a trip to the states to buy our next RV when we have enough we will take a couple of years out. how many people living in bricks and mortar can afford that luxury..

    In our opinion we have escaped the rat race because we work when we want to not because we have to..

    Hmmm, at the risk of going off topic, snow chains, bike padlock and luggage straps just don't do it for me. However, did once have a pair of red furry handcuffs but they weren't duel purpose for the motorhome so just had to go ... ha ha ha :Rofl1:
