Funky Fresh RV FOR SALE!

It's true, Frank the Fifth Wheel is looking for new owners. We're moving to Maine and he's not winterized. We have spent so much time and energy renovating Frank over the last year... we like to think he has been reborn.

Interested in the RV?

Do you have a friend (anywhere in America!) who's interested in Tiny Living? Frank is a much lower initial investment than a traditional Tiny Home. And cute to boot!

We can help with transport and we'll give his new owners a class on how to operate and maintain Frank. Bonus: Frank has a home office!

Interested in Ash & Mike?

You may be wondering, "why the heck are they moving again?" Good question, it's one we've been asked MANY times this summer. Some people peg it on our generations of so called Millennials. Apparently we're prone to spontaneous wandering. But actually, this plan has been developing for years.

For us, college graduation also triggered student loan payments. Both of us were itching to exercise our post-graduation freedom, but there is very little freedom under a cloud of debt. So we worked. HARD. We're still paying off loans, but we also saved enough to live without jobs for an extended period of time.

It's not that we don't want to work, I don't think either of us are capable of laziness. It's more that we don't want to be so stressed about having to earn. We don't own property, we don't have kids, and we want to do some adventuring! We want to be able to ski, ride bikes, or do yoga every day. We want time to enjoy the outdoors, each other, and our families.

So for about two years, we were incredibly frugal. We bought both of our cars with cash. They cost $10,000 combined. We stopped paying rent and moved into an RV. We stopped buying things "because we deserved it." We focused on our long-term plan: very low cost of living with medium to high earnings. And it worked!*

In three weeks, we move to the Maine mountains. Mike quit his high-pressure job. He wants to work as a lift operator or mechanic on the ski lifts this season. I completed all my stressful projects and will now take small projects that get me excited. Maybe I'll also babysit, office manage, teach exercise classes... the possibilities are endless!

We hope to travel like this for about two years. We have some ideas of what will come after our winter in Maine... but that's for us to know and you to find out :) Stay tuned!

And finally, Aunty Carole's biweekly social media summary :)

 Many states have new energy codes. It means big change for the construction industry... πŸ› Things like this spray foam insulation in order to get a vaulted ceiling! πŸ˜ƒ It's so worth it. This apartment will look amazing when it's done... Also, doesn't it look like backwards snow?? ❄️
