Yeah, I'll take a hard pass on that

Are you thinking of retiring but cannot settle on where? Maybe you want to spend your time traveling the world? 

 Now you can turn this dream into a reality. 

With home prices skyrocketing and cruising increasing in popularity, more people are looking to live out their golden years out on the open seas.

I've got no desire to be packed into a floating city for a week, much less the rest of my life.

    1. Where do your work on your bikes or othe projects? Do the RV parks allow that? Sure, you could pull off the road but that may be sub optimal.

      Also, how do you handle mail? I know there are businesses which do mail handling, but what about packages?

    2. I too am a Full time RVer, summers in Idaho, Oregon or South Dakota, winters in Southern Missouri or Arkansas, sometimes Alabama. If I don't like a place move. Packages and mail are not a problem. I use General Delivery at post offices and insist on email for correspondence.

    3. In South Dakota we have mailing service. You get a physical address and they hold your mail for you. When you get somewhere you call them and they ups/fedex your stuff to you. They love it because South Dakota does not have income tax.

    4. Hey Rick, man there are so many options out there. What I do is called Workamping. Right now where I am in Idaho at this state park I have a two bay shop 16 steps out my door. At all the parks I have worked at shop access is never an issue. Guess that comes from being a nice hard working guy? I was awarded Volunteer of the year 2021 for the entire stature of Idaho. When you are doing anything you really enjoy its really not work. If you want to go deeper into how its done let me know and I will ask Mr. Lane to send you my email. But the short answer is, this is a very easy way to live, well for me it is. Oh I was Cavalry for a long time, we are always on the move, so its in my blood.

    5. I was able to make most everything paperless. Escapees for the mail and my address/drivers license/voting (voting has changed since the last election so you need to look into that) Most every town has some place that will receive packages for me (for a fee) and Amazon has lockers everywhere.
      I'm settled down now but for many things my Escapees address is still my address

  2. The women are circling Cav Guy. Be careful. A man have a good time and fun a woman thinks needs changing.

  4. BE, I avoid wimnez like the plague. I am a very bitter divorcee. I can be very nice but very blunt and rude at the same time. I have no need for any woman in my life. None.

    1. Used to be: the further you are from doctors and lawyers the better off you are...now I add women to that list.

  5. The greatest drawback (read HORROR!) would be that cruise ships tend to be full of the kind of people who go on cruises . . .

  6. RV'ers should join Escapees. Founded by full-time RV'ers, run by RV'ers. Lots of good ideas and support from other folks on the road. We full-timed for 11 years, but were retired then. Lots of people travel and work full-time.

  7. Nothing new about this; I remember reading about this 30 years ago when I was selling nursing home insurance. The pitch then was that health care was available on the ship, as well as daily linen changes, food delivery, etc. and that it would be a better option than a nursing home.

  8. you're making hundreds or thousands of new friends each week," McDaniel said. Fucking asshole. No, you're not. You're meeting maybe a few dozen people a week, that come next week, you won't remember their name, and next month, you won't remember meeting them.
