Our Life Before FIRE

Another Busy Week

I have my first contract for work! This is starting to get REAL very fast. I just signed my first contract today for a hospital near Virginia Beach and my starting date is at the end of October. That gives us TWO months to sell the jeep, purchase a truck, buy a Fifth wheeler, find renters for our house, and pack! I am feeling slightly overwhelmed. Oh and I am also still training for my triathlon which is this weekend! It has been such a busy week already and its Tuesday! Brett called a dealership that has the fifth wheeler we are interested in today. It’s a Coachmen Chaparral for $ 39,000 and its about 39 feet long. We decided on this one because it looks nice, has great reviews, and has auto-leveling. We are truly RV novices, so Brett downloaded an awesome app that is full of information about fifth wheelers and RV’s, it’s called “RV reference”. He said it is and will be very helpful. Another one we found is “allstays.” This one is going to be helpful when we plan our route to Virginia Beach.

    I also suggest the RV forums! Every question you will have will already be answered by the “old timers” who have owned the same fifth wheel. RVshare is a great one but I always google my questions and the forum with the answer comes up. A lot of them even load video tutorials. It has helped us sooo much when trouble shooting our rig😊 So excited for this journey!!

    The most helpful group of people are other RV’ers. When you get into your camp ground, there will be full timers and people that come and go. They will have tons of tips and tricks, and cool gadgets.
