I basically copied and added to my profile. I'm curious what kinda "you dang fool" comments I'll receive. I have to move cause of emphysema plus the Black Hole of local health care scares me. Im not so bad but the high and low extremes take my breath away and inevitably I get pneumonia at least once a year. I do have a bad leg but it doesn't slow me much. I attended the train wreck called Woodstock 25th! An endurance test, from end to end. I saw younger than I go down! I've researched until finding that Northern California has a temperate mild climate 50-80 degrees year round. I plan to move there Spring '14 from MO, alone, disabled, and from what I can learn.... a fifth wheel travel trailer is what I want & need! Of course I'll have it parked 99.9% of the time but... I've been living in a small room of a tri-level I received in a divorce 11 yrs ago. I've been living this way the entire 11 years. Just me. After this real property burden for a total of 21 yrs... I welcome compact. I have my digital interests plus some explorer left in me! I've researched costs involved and the electric's an unknown but as one author wrote.... "with the costs involved one might as well look at small apartments." I agree... but who wants one? I keep researching online, every detail. But here's the kicker. I've never been near an RV! I know I should. I know I "gotta" but I have no means. I know no one, have no family. I shoulda made this move years ago but who knew! So I'm looking to sell the house next Spring, re-invest in a nice new-ish fifth wheel, and add 10 years to my life. I'm 52 and pretty darn healthy in all other ways. Plus my emphysema hasn't worsened in 5 years. I know it will but I'm Goin Down Slow... maybe. Realistically I can live in a fifth wheel until something opens up in Disabled housing but ... I may like the RV and stick somewhere with full hookups+! At least until I'm decrepid and need help. Anyway, my plan. Sell next Spring and wave the proceeds around a dealer so they'll know I'm not plumb nuts. I'm actually plumb nuts with a few dollars. Which Dealer is yet to be determined. Hopefully one that'll be patient and maybe even let me spend a few nights in a park. Spending around a Grand rental just to say I tried one seems a waste... but I may have to. Alright. Fire!
