You see, it actually all started a few years back when we started to realize we just had too much stuff. We think that stuff not only takes up space in your home, but also in your heart and mind. Ever open up a cluttered drawer and feel stressed? That's how we felt about our whole home! Everywhere we went there were things... especially since we had kids. Children are like professional thing relocators. I felt like I was spending just way too much time relocating all of the mislocated items... so stressful! When we moved to Florida a year ago we had been trying to live with a little less. We got rid of a bunch of stuff, but seriously.... we still had so so so much, 99.5% of which went completely unused most of the time.
Last spring after our landlord decided to raise our rent, we decided it might be time to move on. We had always loved the idea of seeing more of the US, so why not just spend a year doing just that??? We bought a truck and a trailer and voila!...we are now nomads!
