Thought I'd introduce myself a bit more here since I've been reading everyone else story and getting inspired!
I am in my late 20's and have dreamed of having and living in an airstream travel trailer for a few years now. The freedom to find a new campground, beachside location, or land for rent has always enticed me and I have always lived somewhat minimally. Around a year ago I started game planning more seriously for my lifestyle and didn't tell anyone (to include my family or girlfriend) because I wanted to learn as much as I could to shoot down all the "what about...?" questions from my friends and family.
Roughly three months ago I made the decision that I wasn't getting any younger and there was no better time than now!!! After many hours of searching these forums and the dark corners of the internet I found the perfect 1965
Overlander to suit my needs and was lucky enough to have been able to purchase it from a fantastic couple who have helped me get my feet under me with the purchase.
Before 5 days ago I had never hitched or towed a vehicle in my personal life. Ever. Not even once.
Before 5 days ago I had never seen the interior or an airstream myself. Ever. Not even once.
Before 5 days ago I had a house I was renting, monthly bills, and a somewhat regular life.
Now I own one and am figuring it out as I go along.
Over the next couple months I will be minimizing all my belongings (anyone need a 72" TV?!) until I can move into the Airstream full time around November.
It has been an adventure already, just the way I wanted it. And I'm sure it will continue to be one in the future. But I've always believed in the old maxim that you have to attack life and keep it against the ropes, because no matter what it's going to kill you in the end.
So here I go. Into a new life and a crazy choice that I probably am not prepared for but hey, if not now, when?
Any and all advice or recommendations are appreciated! Take care and happy travels.
