RV-on-FIRE 13h
I’m getting ready to do my last two work assignments before our vacation break. It’s starting to hit home that we only have one more day at home and 6 on the road with our son before he is away on his own. This might be tougher than I thought. 😢

I’m always camping in my head.

A tent and free camping on public land next to a stream for water. The rest will buy you food and sunscreen. BAM!!!

Most of the bad financial advice I’ve received in my life was from “expert" financial advisors. We chose to move on but sadly people in my family stayed with them out of loyalty and it cost them. There is no such thing as loyalty when it comes to finances IMO.

Despite far from ideal economic conditions we have persevered with our long term plans and this week I finish work. Scary stuff leaving the comfort and security of my corporate job but looking forward to stepping into the unknown.

Look on RV trader or there are also some Facebook groups for private sales. Avoid camping world at all costs. They are shady and overpriced. Good luck. Hope you find a great one!

I don’t really know a lot about them. People seem to like the R-Pods and pop up campers. They would both fit in a garage. I usually recommend buying used, although we didn’t, because used RV’s have already had the bugs worked out. New ones tend to have a lot of issues.

Is it just me or are the last few days of work before taking a vacation the slowest and most annoying days?

Yeah I think I’ll give up my 7 figure portfolio so I can go into debt and work for unappreciative corporate douche bags until i’m laid off off unceremoniously to make room for younger douche bags. That would be an amazing life!

I’m always at a loss to understand why people are anti FIRE. Who wouldn’t want to strive for financial freedom, personal responsibility and living life on your own terms? So is their idea of happiness working for someone 5 days a week and maybe getting 10 years of leisure time?

Motorhome with a tow vehicle. I’m not one to pull a trailer or a 5er. I can back our 40 ft. No problem. If it was a trailer or 5er I would probably hit everything in my path. Just not comfortable with them.

It depends. Having an RV affords a lot more comfort and amenities. That also comes with a price and continuous maintenance. If you are willing to make that trade then I say go for it. I would always recommend renting an RV first to make sure you are comfortable with driving it.

5 more days until we hit the road for a month long journey. The last leg with our son followed by the first leg of our future as empty nesters.

This was the situation we found ourselves in. We always piled money in our 401k’s and now that we want to retire early we are focused on cash and accessible investment accounts. You have to bridge the gap to 59 1/2 or even later if possible.
