And launch date is moved up a tad…

For those following this rather lengthy blog and insanity that we call our world, WELCOME… Lynda and I have been living in our RV for about 6 months trying to get everything lined up for taking off on our road trip for a lifetime.. And with that, had to come up with a way to earn a living while traveling, and to get health insurance as well.

These were our last two items and we suspected it would take until 2015 to pull that off.. Hmmm as Gomer Pyle used to put it..

Surprise

Turns out that her friend Trish Claussen has a connection with a firm that just happened to be interested in Lynda’s services as a business coach. And our friend and financial advisor, Barry Todd (shameless advertising for his firm, BDT and Associates) needed her services as well. So the way things are looking, she may have her 10 clients by June. No later than October. And I am looking into health insurance coverage for us both, out of Florida. And that is going very well..

Now, tie in the process getting our vehicles registered in Florida, and it is looking pretty damn good to be on the road a year earlier than we expected. We still have a few bumps to get over, but all in all, it is looking VERY good for the home team. And with that, when the time comes, I will put forth a proposal to my current employer that I would be thrilled to work for them remotely at a much reduced rate, lower than what contractors normally charge, and less than what a fulltime employee would make.. An offer that I hope will be hard to refuse. If not, I will give my boss, Cathy Young, all the advanced notice I can, as she has been incredible to work for.

So the energy is ramping up, and the Carpenters are preparing to launch… and we are SOOooooooo ready.

Stay tuned, this is gonna be a RIDE!

  1. following a spur of the moment decision, we too are planning a momentous roadtrip now – on a tandem tricycle, around the world, for charity, and we aim to leave at the start of June! Gulp.
    and we are not returning when it’s finished! time for a new home too.
    I am so pleased your plans are coming forward…can’t wait to read about your adventures.

  2. Hi there! Congratulations on your big adventure. We just discovered your blog on WordPress — what a hoot . . . because we’re doing the exact same thing, starting a week from today when we drive from FL in our SUV to pick up our just-repainted coach at Newmar in Nappanee, IN. We’ve been RVing off and on for several years now (and publishing a blog during that time,too) but now we’ve decided to sell our Gulf-front condo and make it happen 12 months a year. We’re consultants (advertising and marketing) and have clients around the country . . . although we’ve purposely backed off the business a bit so we have more time for ourselves. We’ll be watching your adventures carefully on your blog, and in the meantime you can check out what we’re doing — and have done — on our blog, Ramblin’ On, here https://ramblinon.wordpress.com. Good luck on the road! Lisa & Joe

  3. Hooray.. awesome news, and congrats an all the fabulous stuff.
