Yes it's a new experience for you I know. But the longer you do it the more natural it will feel. We fear the unknown. I'm 70 and been doing this for 9 yrs. Find a few friends to camp with. You'll meet a few on the road. Enjoy your journey.Greetings!
Introducing myself feels a bit strange lol but here I go!
I am a 64 year old woman who because of mobility issues and then still recovering from the quarantine decided I had to make changes and get out of my house. My husband is a stay at home introvert who is encouraging me to step out of my rut, or comfort zone. When I say get out of my house I mean I have only left my home because of Drs appointments. I needed a big change.
We purchased a used high top Van and my husband and son insulated it, put in a fan on roof, along with RV AC ( for when I am at full hook ups) I have a full size bed and a counter with drawers for a kitchen. I also invested in solar so I can have lights and a fridge. ((My solar WILL NOT run the AC, just lights and fan and fridge)) compared to some of the YouTube videos I consider my build very basic. We concentrated on insulation and sleeping and cooking not fancy wood work or as my son calls it fru fru lol.
So far I have only camped out on our property, to test my strengths and ability to get things accomplished. So far so good! I am leaving this Saturday for a trip to visit my cousin in Arkansas. I will consider that trip my true test run.
I have been reading a lot of the old posts and that’s why I joined, as I wander around I like this forum as a resource! Of course in my planning stage I have devoured hundreds of YouTube videos including Bob Wells. Who knew I would one day step out into the world around me haha.
