the time has finally arrived
I saw an airstream trailer on the cover of an old record album, [Ry Cooder] and I have been leaning in this direction for the last 4 years. Had plans on getting out from under the child support when the boys grew up and then selling the house to purchase a mid-sized AS and start the adventure.
Then came the unforseen stuff and the eventual short sale of the house. Living with my son and planning my new attack on how to pursue the dream has had mostly sad days, where I knew not to look at trailers that cost a certain amount and was relegated by reality to look at options that required a lot of work and cash. I did continue to look at the ones that were out of my reach. Don't we all?
Then, out of the blue, I find that I can pursue the dream.
Definitely on the down-low. I have been reading and following the sport around here for months. All in all, a good group of folks. I will not be looking at newer units and not able to spend the time on a restoration. I think that if I read between the lines correctly, even nice trayla's need a helping hand. I have experience with boats and one of the secrets was to find the part you needed at an RV place and save the cost of the "Marine" moniker.
So, bear with me now. I plan on being a solo with a dog and an occaisional friend. I have stripped down my life and could probably go to prison, as long as there is room for a couple of guitars. I am not one of those Jim Rockford, sportcoat wearing, private dectective, kind of guys.
My plan is to move slowly and discover the seldom seen. My only thoughts are northerly in the summer and southerly in the winter. I just might find a home in between and stay there permanently. No Idea.
I am also one of the "got to have a part time job" kind of guys. My initial dream is centered around a college town, kind of atmosphere, with it's music and vibe. And then moving on, 6 months later to another special place that holds some of the same qualities. Do not get me wrong,,,If I can find a free spot, near a decent pacific break. I am not moving.
I have been reading here a lot and I would appreciate any pointers that might seem pertinent. I look forward to any tips on buying a 25 - 27 , center bath. I have decided that center bath is the way I should go.
So kind folks, anything and everything is what I ask for. Links to info is just as good as the info.
Thanks in advance,,
