I need opinions on selling home- all to travel- serious?
I'm serious about this and needs some opinions and thought.
I'm a single home owner with 10+ acres and 3 horses and retired. I'm not in love with where I live and will never pay off my high mortgage. I'm also sick of all the work for one person to keep the place up.
I'm considering selling home/land, tractor- equipment- all of it in 2015 except for 1/2 horses. I would be staying in my L/Q trailer (15'L/Q, mid tack, 3 h- overall length including truck is 58'L) with my dog and traveling during good weather to different states for camping and ride. I'm a retired truck driver so have a experience of traveling and enjoyed it. I've thought of renting the place out, but that can be a real hassle, in case it I change my mind. I'm in a small community, nearest large city is 70+ miles, so there is no property management companies around to watch the place. I would rent storage for the things I really want to keep and couldn't/wouldn't take with me. I'm thinking of going to State parks and also guest ranches where you can ride your own horse.
What I really want to know has anyone done this for long periods of time? Not just weekend or like a vacation. What problems did you encounter anything and everything. Like finding feed/hay, vets, especially farriers, mail etc. I have laptop and cell phone to keep in touch. And there is always Wally World for personal items for myself and dog.
Any info/experiences would be appreciated.
Thanks so much
