3 years was an initial projection for how long I could travel in a bus, sans mortgage/rent, utilities, etc., with what I had in the bank. So far, even with the crazy spending(toys/gadgets/electronics) I am still on track for 3 years. I am looking at a sailboat also, and I do miss working, so who knows how long it will last, but so far I am having the time of my life.

I figured, and glad to hear that it was not something sinister like a terminal illness.

Well there isn't saying you can't stop and work along the way. I have been watching a lot of sailing channels, as that was the very first idea we had for tiny living and I have been looking for inspiration. One of the things I see with a lot of them is that 2-3 year projection of traveling before depleting funds, then getting a paying gig stockpiling for a bit and heading out again. The SV Delos sailing channel on youtube had an 8 part clip series of a chat they did in Copenhagen, after I watched it I thought sounds kind of like what I would do. A good boat aint cheap (and a cheap boat will take a lot of work) and makes our skoolie projects seem super simple.

Any who been enjoying the videos keep them coming as they are definitely worth watching. I would ask if you develop any tips on finding camping to please share.

Visited the Rain Forests of Olympic, and I am still wet.







Lots of water in the woods and the beaches
