I have been thinking about this for some time and I'm relatively young. I've always wanted to give it a go. There are a ton of free camping sites and pay sites in beautiful places for as little as 10 a night or 300 a month. I'd have at least some internet connection usually due to expanding cellular networks and hotspot technology when I need it. I run small business with little overhead and it's been quite profitable for me. It just requires I have access to a post office, most of the items are purchased used from craigslist. I've been averaging about 2,000 USD a month, which would cover lodging, gas and food easy. I don't really have to tend to it unless I run low on money since I use another site for sales. I only say that since not all areas are going to have easy access to a post office or the internet. I wouldn't be able to afford an RV, but I'm thinking a conversion van with a bed in it would work, along with a tent and essentials of course. I've always wanted to travel, write and be nomadic at least for some period of time to try it out, rubber tramping as some people call it. I'm sure some of you will think that's crazy but I'm the kind of person that really doesn't like to see the same thing every single day. I've always been really into traveling, the outdoors and whatnot (I'm going with friends to PA tomorrow to kayak). I did get out of a pretty lengthy relationship a year ago and I'm not really tied down with family (I don't have kids, etc) so I think now would be a better time than any. I can afford to take some time away from college and return. I'd like to use the time to reflect, write and generally find new experiences. I've lived a minimalist lifestyle over the past year and have parsed my belongings down to pretty essential stuff in an attempt to disconnect consumerism and self worth. I put more pride in my intellectual capacity and ability to take care of my body. The few belongings I do have I make the most out of. I managed to learn how to live out of a bag in boot camp while still keeping everything organized. Most of these camp sites have places to shower and running water. I think it's a pretty feasible idea. I have a substantial sum of money saved should anything go wrong. Any thoughts?
