These are the last snow photos you will be seeing on the BCB for a few days, so put 'em in the freezer else they'll be melted by what's coming next. Fire and Water do not mix!A commenter suggested that there is a full-timer trapped in my part-timer's body. I agree to a point, but when you look truth in the eye... few couples can sustain a full-time lifestyle beyond a year or three. Note I said "couples." Singles can push it longer, but eventually most of them throw in the towel because "someone" with a different set of travel plans walks into their life. There are a few notable exceptions to singles staying on the road; Wandrin Lloyd and Boonie come to mind.
But couples always seem to eventually find that place... that picket fence that strums their heartstrings. If you want the truth about how serious a couple is about going on the road forever and ever... after they sell their sticks and bricks and kiss the grandkids goodbye... contradictory tears streaming down smiling faces...
ask them how big their storage unit is.
It's a shortcut question to the subconscious. You see, a ginormous storage unit is both a lie detector and a fortune teller.
If you have one filled to the brim,
it's nothing more than a parachute, a fire escape, a trap door, a secret passageway... how many ways must I say it...
If you are thinking of selling your house and really serious about becoming full-timers... of driving off into the sunset on an eternal roadtrip... but you have a storage unit filled with keepsakes and furniture and nicknacks and heirlooms and antique cars and tools and framed art and so on and so on...
you ain't going to make it five years
Just my opinion...
based on experience.
