Jimmy and I are in the final planning phase before hitting the road again after a six-month property caretaking position in northeast Washington state.
We continue to explore our desire to live a resilient and meaningful life on the road with a limited income. We have been asked to share insights into our ongoing journey of evaluating each aspect and possession in our lives for the purpose of downsizing and simplifying.
On Saturday, Sept. 24, we are doing an informal presentation (no PowerPoint, just talking and a couple of handouts) on ‘Navigating a life on the road in a bumpy economy.’
