Well, we just got an offer on our home and accepted so we are officially in contract. In 30 days we will be 'homeless' and traveling FT in our 5th wheel. We are excited and a little nervous.
We will be setting up a mailbox address in South Dakota to become citizens for drivers license, mailing address, vehicle registration etc.
Any pearls of wisdom for the FT lifestyle are welcome!
Congrats! Not homeless, just houseless.
I think the biggest mistake I see is new full-timers treating it like a constant vacation and pursuing time-consuming and stressful schedules to run around the country seeing everything they can as fast as they can. Kinda like kids in a candy store. Usually, it leads to burnout. Also makes them travel tired so mistakes happen easier and more often souring them on the full-timing. Successful ones tend to take their time and even spent months of the year in one or two locations.
This is good advice that we have been working on since we retired. When we were working we tried to pack too much into a short vacation. Now we need to slow down and take our time.
