I don't have anything to say.

What do you want to know?

How much time are you spending at home base as compared to traveling?

Hmmm...what's your favorite color?

That's an average of 50 a month (despite your recent sabbatical). Quite impressive.

(After further consideration... I have averaged 80. It must be the quality that has made all the difference.)

I don't have any firm numbers but I would estimate - 5 months traveling and 7 at home. The again I broke my collar bone twice. since 2006.

I did not know when I retired how much I would like the RV lifestyle. I never did it before.

Knowing what I know now, I would have bought a slightly larger RV (for my equipent) and rented an apartment. Or I may have stored my stuff for awhile. AND, I would have bought the winning Lotto ticket.

If, the housing market was still increasing I would be happy with my decision to buy a town home.

I think the lesson is for those thinking about ER is not to commit yourself for awhile.

Fortunately, the buy/rent issue is not a deal breaker for me. I'm happy with where and what I have.

Read the 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" There is a discussion about a dialogue of Socrates. There is discussion about if a key word should be interrpertated as 'Quality' or 'Beauty'. I try for Quality - in many cases, what is needed, not what is wanted.

Sometimes, we need to focus on not what is presented but what is not presented.

I still like it. It is said that when a man grows or takes off a beard he is going through a significant change of some sort. Maybe that same thing applies to avatars.

Maybe.

It is also said that an avatar is an expression of one's attitude toward the world.

Perhaps you should think seriously about growing a beard... :)

Now if you could elaborate on the concepts of Shibui vs Shibumi. For those that never heard of the them. :) Food for thought.

Open ended question for you: Tell us more about the full-timing lifestyle... do you stay in campgrounds... boondocking... stay in one place a while... I'd like to know more.
