If one of these five descriptions fits, this book was written for you.
1. Do you love to travel? First Class in the air and five-star hotels on the ground are great, especially when you are old and have plenty of disposable income—as I currently do. But never that way when I was young. In those years I often traveled with little or no money at all. I slept in barns, cars, on the floor in a stranger’s home (50 cents a night), and sometime just in a sleeping bad along a country road. Our early years of marriage were in a 27-ft travel trailer and when I traveled in sales work, I slept under a homemade camper top in the back of an old pickup.
In more recent years I’ve slept in old airstreams, fiberglass “eggs”, fifth-wheel trailers and converted cargo trailers. If you like to travel cheap, and perhaps on the QT as well, this book is for you. I even include the details of a special highway trip that you just must take before you die!
2. Would you like to stop paying rent? If so, this book will show you how to do it, especially if you are single! You don’t need to travel to live in a van, a truck, a trailer or a motorhome. In fact, more than once, I discuss someone who lives in a truck or trailer very close to their work, thus eliminating a long commute. Let’s say your rent plus unities comes to $800 a month. You buy an old box van for $5000 and you live in it for three years, then sell it for $2500. Do the math. (Mathematically challenged? You’ll end up saving $26,300.00.)
3. Do you need to “get away” once in awhile? If so, camping in a federal forest or alongside a gurgling brook will charge your batteries better than any other way I know (short of sailing on the open sea). Ah, solitude! As Anne Morrow Lindbergh wrote, in her book Gift from the Sea, “Certain springs are tapped only when we are alone. The artist knows he must be alone to create; the writer, to work out his thoughts; the musician, to compose; the saint, to pray.”
4. Looking for a hobby or to make a little money? One of my fun projects some years back was to find a used cargo trailer on Craigslist, fix it up for camping, use it myself, and then sell it. The same could be done with vans, trucks, or even old motorhomes.
5. Are you preparing to get outta Dodge? What if a worldwide financial meltdown is getting closer every day? What if a cyber attack takes down the electrical grid—how long you gonna last in a city? No better time than right now to select your vehicle and make your plans!
