First, thank you for all of the kindness you shared with us last week after hearing our Covid story! It was much appreciated. 

This week we share with everyone the answer to a question we get a lot these days ... how did you two decide to sell everything you own, including your home, and go live full time in a RV?

We are going to share with you the process we used and you can use too when making a decision!

Grab a pad and pen and take notes!
