I'm amongst the babies of the bunch around here.
I'm 47 (48 in August). I sold my house in Chicago last summer, bought Homer (my 2006 Sunseeker Class C, 32 ft) as a birthday present for myself last August, hit the road in mid-October '06 working as a remote employee for my job. Quit said job right before Christmas and haven't worked for the last 3.5 months. My COBRA insurance ends in 8 days. I am living off the proceeds from the sale of my house and what monies I had in savings. (enough but by NO means wealthy).
Currently my recurring expenses are as follows:
Monthly park rental
Cell phone & wireless aircard
I have no permanent debt other than the balance on Homer. My 99' Durango (Gladys) is paid off. Insurance on Homer is paid up thru Sept '07 and Gladys thru June '07.
My biggest other expense is the monthly payment here at the RV park outside of Houston. I have been here since Christmas Eve. Before that, I was parked in my sister's driveway in Atlanta for 6 weeks, a week in an RV park in Nashville before that and a week at a Salvation Army camp in middle Missouri before that.
I am not doing a lot of driving of Homer, although that will change in a couple of weeks when I head back to Nashville for a few weeks and then off on a road trip to the western states.
My expenses are about $2000/month. I eat 90% of my meals in Homer, and when I do eat out, it's typically a fast food joint. I do VERY little shopping, except to purchase food and the various and sundry items that I didn't know I'd need when I started out on this journey, like a small fan, step cover, step stool, dust buster, etc.
I will have to eventually decide how to bring some money in, but for right now, I had planned to go about 6 months before I went back to work again in some capacity.
