That's 8 months of 12. The next 4 maybe someplace away from cities and tourist area's - we shall see.

Great! Sounds like an excellent plan...

Are you going to hire someone to help you load/unload the trailer each time you move? As someone who has moved a lot, I'm recalling how tough the move part was each time. Perhaps you are really scaling down your household items that you plan to move each time?

less stuff, more time

(49, married; DH 53. I am fully retired as of 2015 (well ok, I still work part-time but only because I love the job and have complete freedom to call off if I want to travel with hubby for work), DH hopes to fully retire 2018 when he turns 55 to access 401K penalty-free...although he may decide to do part-time consulting)

Truly the experience of our lifetimes to date.
I'd be interested in these recommendations - start a thread or add here or arrange to email - your choice.

Kindest regards.
