My goal was always to get an RV and travel after I retired. But retirement came unexpectedly early when I lost my job of 23 years in 2009, and I found myself living on a very reduced income. Princess Roxie and I moved to Ecuador for two years, where it’s easy to live on less, but I really missed camping and travel, and my camping friends. The only way we could afford to live in the U.S. was to live in my little bitty 2004 ALiner Sportliner pop-up camper; 58.5 square feet! So we did that fir 4 years, always staying on free public lands.
Then I bought a little piece of land in northeastern Arizona and built the cutest tiny house ever! 87 square feet. I lived there for 3.5 years until inflation caught up to me again and I couldn’t make ends meet.
So in September of 2022 I moved to Albania.
