Moving from a bricks-n-sticks to a fairly small motorhome will require some lifestyle adjustments. Smaller space means of course fewer belongings. To this end, I’m gradually getting rid of all unnecessary stuff and learning to live with less. Changes in water, electric and waste management must also be considered. So, I’m reducing my use of water and electric, and trying to be conscious of how I use them.
My preferred method of travel and camping will be the far places which means running to the store will not be convenient. To remedy this, the pantry is being reduced to essential staples with an emphasis on dry goods, and the cupboard is being limited to pans, dishes and utensils that are used regularly. Cooking and eating at home will need to be increased. Living alone is my excuse for eating out far too often. But, that is a luxury I will need to control after retirement. And, it will mesh well with my continuing effort to eat healthier.
I have also attended a few RV campouts to meet those living the life and to become familiar with the issues they face. These are some of the things I’m doing to make the transition to RV living. The changes feel good to me and I’m looking forward to the day it happens.
