When your home moves. Huh?

What might gypsys, veterans who have seen and done to much, retirees, homeless families, just tired of responsibilities, fixing your plumbing, mowing your yard, high property taxes, and high neighbors have in common? They may just share in common with many of us (me) a deep felt desire to get away from it all. Is it okay to feel this way, to shed the normal have a job, house, life and get a van or rv and live in it full time? Would that make us a dirty hobo or street person and does anybody really do that if they don't have to?
Wake up folks, there are lots of people that live in vans and cars because the want to or they have to.
This blog post is to introduce you to a worldwide tribe of people that proudly live on their own terms as best society will let them. Click  if you are curious. (you know you want to look).
You see this little old trailer? Thats my baby, when she gets road worthy, watch my tail lights. I'm the one tired of responsibility and high taxes and I'm going off in search of adventure and I don't care who knows. I don't care who  asks if I'm trying to reclaim my youth either. 
To steal a quote from a blogger friend Steve at   
"Omani Okablaya"  so, until we meet "travel freely" my friends.

Thanks for the quote/mention D!

Perhaps not trying to re-capture youth, but rather stave off old age, and bring forward all the tools we have learned to live a life worth living.

Some will say "dirty hoboes," some will say "useless, homeless," but it makes no difference. The rejection of the slaveholder's grasp is a personal journey that only the enlightened will understand.

"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."

- Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken

The poem, I remember being captivated by it when I was young.
Thankyou readers for the comments.

Oh Amen to all the comments above... In the end, what matters is we had a good time here during our lives. If people honestly feel that it was worth all that heartache and personal sacrifice to make all that money so they can impress their friends and family, well more power to them.

But really, when I am on my deathbed, I don't want to think I used up a major portion of my life doing things I did not want to do. We have such short lives when you look at the march of history and geological time. Those of us on here realize it's not worth wasting what little we have over trivial matters such as prestige and societal image. In the end, all you will ever get is a gold casket that is useless to your rotting body.

It's great to have the
Trailers for a traveler or who actually loves the adventure. I often go out with my RV to take a long trip.
