    I couldn't do this. Being single, I'd be too intimidated plus I'm a cat person and cats don't travel well.

    I have however been watching a lot of You Tube videos regarding this in addition to my tiny house obsession. Really I can drool with jealousy at some of these people. Perhaps it's not for everyone forever but I can see doing it for a year or two. A former co-worker now has her hospital administration license, rented out their house and is living in a trailer and they will go wherever the job takes her for now.

    It is a freedom. There have to be drawbacks.

    Maybe I'm just seriously in need of a trip I have no plans of taking.

    I was so thinking about an RV lifestyle but I recently took 2 weeks to go explore the possibility of staying the Summer, in a friends 5th wheel. It was such a tight squeeze. Not only that, I realized that anything goes wrong with an RV, I am the one to fix it. At my age, I don't want to be a home-owner again, even if the home has wheels. Just too much responsibility.

    I so love the idea of traveling around meeting new people all the time, but I think just taking trips would suffice like Kitty mentions.

    I do love those cute, tiny homes though, and the ones you can pull behind a truck etc. There are so many retired people doing the full-time thing, but as a single woman, I just wouldn't feel secure enough now.

    One thing for sure though, like both you gals, I need a pup or a kitti;)

    I can imagine the gas it would cost. I can't see myself either as a single woman driving around the country in a RV or large van. I still like the idea of it and it can work for some so I'll just keep watching the videos.

    @Denise Happyfeet I hope once settled you get a pet.
