The incredible shrinking home

Just noticed an interesting change in our daily living habits. We have unconsciously reduced the space we are living in to be about equivalent to the space we will have in our RV. We have stopped using our offices  and other spaces for the most part and mostly hang out in about the 400 square feet we will soon be living in full time. It's plenty of space. It's just part of the whole preparation process, along with shrinking the amount of our possessions, such as clothing, papers, CD's, books, photos, furniture. Every day we find a way to give away, sell, throw away, scan or copy something.

Another Big Step

Our house is now on the market. It's just a matter of waiting, and cleaning every day. We're sitting in a puddle of melting snow - not the best appearance for the moment. But that will pass soon. Anyone want a lovely home swimming in the suburbs of Chicago?

Happy Valentines Day!

Rick and I gave each other folding kayaks for Valentines Day. They will take up less room in the basement of the 5th wheel. Here they are assembled in the basement.

First BIG step

We ordered our new home. It will be a combination 38RESB3 and 38TKSB3 Mobile Suite by DRV. That's a fifth wheel trailer, pulled by a truck. Here is their website: drvsuites.com
Next we will order the new pickup truck to pull the DRV.
