I tend to think retiring and traveling and so forth is waaauy different than living in a trailer, working and waiting for a house to be built. Depending on the state of the economy and everything else in the future, I was wanting to check out being a campground host somewhere in the southeast doing stays at different national forests and state parks.
We built a house last year and the waiting is the hardest part especially toward the end of the process. I will tell you one thing. I love the mountains. Born and raised in Florida and decided to quit my job, buy a business and move to the Smokies. Living here in a house is nice, dont get me wrong but it is waaay different than coming here on vacation. Part of me is jaded by it all. I have work to do, kids have stuff and the idea of just camping all the time, going hiking every weekend and so forth is just that...an idea. Life happens. I wish I could do those things more often, especially camp and hike. I wonder if that is the case when one retires...we have an idea in our head and then there is reality.
