    We have finally burnt our bridges, we have been fulltimimg for 2 years but kept all our furniture in storage which has cost approx £1500 and all kept IN CASE we wanted to go back to bricks and mortor but now we spent the last 2 weeks selling everything we own except for the memories which we have kept a few momentos in daughters loft, so we are homeless except for the MH which is now our home, but we are revelling in the fact that we can move home as and when we decide, loch one week, countryside the next seaside the next wherever we want to go, we can go anywhere,anyone else done this? hubby is retired so doesnt work and we are free as birds what a great feeling, dont regret it yet and dont think we will.:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Everything I own is in the van. So I don't own much. Just enough.

    Slept under a tiled roof last week or rather couldn't sleep. Won't be doing that again in a hurry.

    Enjoy your new freedom.

    Hundreds do it.

    Some don't last long.

    Some last a long time.

    But eventually age will catch up with you and you need a backup plan.

    But until then just live like there's no tomorrow.

    Probably makes you as close to FREE as it's possible to get in this day and age.

    Yes, we did it for three years, got tired of never being settled, always on the move.. nowhere to call 'home', great views and exotic locations didn't compensate for not having our own place.
    As time went on we both realised that it wasn't the dream we thought it would be.. it was exciting, we saw many places ... but without purpose other than to see around the next bend .. it got boring..

    We had no 'exit' plan, so getting back to a house and normality was a lot more difficult than we anticipated ..

    Brian (hilldweller) said, 'you need a back up plan' .. I would call it an end plan.. with that in place you can enjoy the adventure until you decide you've had enough.. or age catches up..

    Now under tiles we will hopefully do long trips and still see far off places .. but won't ever burn bridges again.

    Good luck with your travels, I sincerely hope you have a great time.. :Smile:
