Choosing a ‘Roadworthy’ Income

Money does not grow on trees! Nor does it grow in our garden!

The harsh reality is that when we leave our homestead, my income dries up!

I’m left with the question, ‘How will I make an income while living in an RV?’

After doing some research, and talking with full-time RVers, I’ve learned you can find part-time, seasonal, and even full-time positions through Workamper.

I thought, this could be the answer to my income concerns…

One drawback… most campgrounds require you to stay put at least three months… some up to six!

That’s all well and good. But, if we’re only doing this RV thing for a year, we won’t cover much territory!

Some work from their RVs making and selling crafts… others find odd jobs along the way… and still others write blogs…

I like the idea of working from our camper.

But what to do?

It needs to be a ‘good fit’ and, it needs to be something I enjoy!

I’d thought about my jewelry making supplies. Then, the thought crossed my mind… do we have space?

Our camper’s a cosy 21 foot travel trailer, with little storage!

And, what about the weight of all my supplies? There is only so much allowed!!!

Lest I forget... I’d also be needing my tools!!!

So, the question remains… What to do for income on the road???

It was at this point, I thought about my focus for this trip — eating healthy.

And thus, I have decided to work my direct sales food business, and write about my travels!

Not only will I prepare healthy meals for myself, I’ll offer a healthier choice in pantry staples for others. Plus, I get to share about our RV adventures — it’s a win-win!

Choosing a ‘roadworthy’ income? Done!

An Uncertain Future

IMG_6626

As I lay awake on this early foggy morning, I find myself wondering about my future.

With our original plans to leave our little homestead on November 1st, we’d bought a camper. Nothing fancy… Just a small, 21 foot camper with enough room to eat, sleep and bathe…

Yet, even now, it sits in our driveway… waiting for us to hitch it up and head out on the open road…

We’d found homes for all our chickens…

It’s been more than a month since we’ve had delicious, farm fresh eggs!

I miss our chickens!!!

But, delay after delay keeps up on the homestead.

There must be a reason…

My niece, who had originally planned to come with us, found herself pregnant and decided to stay behind.

Having made arrangements, that did not go as planned, she now finds herself in a quandry… and now, both she and her estranged husband want to ‘tag along’ when we go…

I honestly don’t know how I feel about this latest development…

Do we let them tag along?

If we don’t, choices they’ve made will mean they are homeless within the week…

Have our continued delays kept us here for this purpose?

Mom and I have had a plan from the beginning… To travel these United States… to see those places we’ve only seen in pictures…

We’d also planned to look for a piece of land that has those things we did not know or think to look for when we found our present home… such as a ranch-style home, a creek, and a spring fed well…

And yet, here we stay… Delay after delay, keeping us here, facing an uncertain future…

There must be a purpose…

I can only trust that God has His reasons for our delays…

He must have some sort of plan…
