Why RV

  • I love to travel but I don't have enough vacation to go to all the places I want to go each year.
  • My travel priorities have always been to visit my parents and siblings over the holidays. An office job with limited vacation days leaves little time for other travel.
  • Over the past few years, my siblings, nieces and nephews and their children have relocated all over the United States making it more challenging to visit them.  
  • Full-time RV living will let me work from "home" and travel at the same time.
  • After 6 weeks walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain, I realized how much I really loved living in a place and meeting people. I don't want this to be a once in a lifetime experience.
  • I am too impatient to wait until I retire at age 67 to travel as much as I want. (That's almost ten years away!)
  • I worry that as I get older I won't physically be able to do the things I want to do by the time I actually retire.
  • I love camping and nature. My family's favorite trips have been when we went camping together.
  • As a genealogist, I can travel in my RV to courthouses, archives, churches and other sites to find the records of people's ancestors. 
  • As a Young Living consultant, I can use therapeutic grade A oils to help keep my RV free of toxins and help others who live full-time in their RV to do the same.


I need to remember the "Be Brave" pledge I made as I left my stone at foot of the cross at Cruz de Ferro in Spain during my Camino.

(Can you find my stone in the photo?)

So, why not?
  • Can I really afford to do this? "I am working harder to grow my Young Living business"
  • What will people think of me? "I am trying to stop worrying about this"
  • Is it safe? "Other women who do this full time say it is if you stay aware"
  • Will I be lonely? "Probably sometimes, so I will need to be more outgoing"
  • Will I mess up the legal requirements of a domicile? I'm a new Floridian and they love me"
  • Who will take the valuable family items? "My siblings, nieces and nephews did"
  • What if I hate it and can't get another good job? "I am highly qualified, no problem"
