5 year plan

being 'stuck' in a situation is always made easier by having a 5 year plan. when we moved to our farmette 6 years ago, we did so with the idea it was temporary and we'd leave as soon as our older kids had graduated from high school. well, we're over halfway through our temporary situation and we've been reviewing our dreams and goals and started loosely formulating a 5 year plan.

i'm hot to sell the 'stead and purchase a bus for conversion or an rv and travel north and south america extensively. talk about a homeschool experience...! since herbal roots is doing well and has a promising future, my dream is to go to foreign countries and live there for a year studying the local herbs then writing about those herbs for a year's worth of herbal roots....such as herbal roots zine: south america!....africa!....europe!....australia!....new zealand!...the possibilities are endless.

i've been reading various people's blogs that inspire me in the fulltime rv living dream. most of them have kids and homeschool. on of my favorite bloggers, the organic sister, wrote an article about living green in an rv that i enjoyed reading.

anybody else got a 5 year plan?

I like your plan.

FOr any 5 year plan I could dream up, I need to get a degree. So my 5 year plan is to get an education that promises me a job for the most part. Worst case scenario, I would like that education to be useful for barter. So, health care it is.

Your welcome to park your rv at our place in New Zealand.

It has been a dream of mine since age 14 to travel NZ in a house truck.
I plan to do it one day!

Love Leanne

My 5 year plan isn't nearly as cool as yours, but I hope that your travels bring you here to Oregon for at least a few days before you start driving your RV across the ocean.

I love your plan and do hope that it brings you to Montana for a while. We have the space for your bus and wireless too ;)

My 5 year plan pretty much includes everything I'm doing now but only more so if that makes sense. I'm hunkering down...
