After months and months of back and forth, we finally decided to list our property. It was a difficult decision and one that we agonized over for quite some time. Ultimately we miss life on the road and being all together as a family.
The kids have all asked me at some point about when we are moving back into the camper and why I keep leaving everyday. I also miss the freedom we had to go where we wanted when we wanted.
We are also attracted to the minimalist lifestyle. We both have a history of maximist tendencies (me more so than Laurel) and the liberty that comes from not having materialistic attachments is awesome. I still have some progress to make in this area, but it gets easier over time.
At the same time having a home base to come back to is nice. As much as I’m itching to travel, I know it is just as important to stop for a while and unwind, re-evaluate and relax.
So now we wait and see. Our realtor was pretty optimistic we could sell fairly quickly, but these things are never certain.
