Going full time and so excited

We sold the house everything in it and we are off. Heading to Wilderness RV in Silver Springs, FL for the winter. So lucky to find this beautiful spot, and then we will take to the open road healthy, free and the world before us. I'm sure we will have many questions.

CONGRATULATIONS! A bit of envy here.

Please post your questions AND your experiences.
For the DW and I, full timing has always been in our future... we just never decided how far in the future until this weekend. 12 to 18 months from now we'll be full timing!

Have a great time!


We are doing the same except with a twist. We downsized to a single wide mobile home in WY where my family lives, and plan to buy a wooded lot in the midwest where my wife is from and construct a glorified campsite for our TT. We'll stay at each for a couple of months out of the year, and travel the rest.


Off to AZ in a couple of weeks.

Congratulations! We have stayed at Wilderness several times. They are centrally located and have lots of full time seasonal sites.

They also had a great little restaurant on premises.

Please give us your opinions and experiences there.

Congratulations, we did the same thing last summer. We keep our bigger Jayco in Az all year and have a smaller Surveyor for summer travel in the north.

good luck!
we are selling the house 6-1 and hitting the road. since i have no other property, except my cemetery plots, I'm now thinking about things like TX drivers license address, voter registration, etc...
we set up a mail service over in Big D. dreading having to battle with direct tv--- Mercy!
hope to find a big tree with good shade to park under and think about important stuff, like grandkids
