I just got back from a three week road trip and could of kept going. Thought it would be great to live that way for a while and was wondering if there may be a movement of people with the same idea. Outdoor people like myself tend to love the outdoors so much they would rather be outside.
Lots of full time RVers out there; think of it as a big van, although some actually are converted vans. Lots of different options. While I'm not full time and won't be, my wife and I have been RVers into our fourth year of the life. My sister in law and her husband, on the other hand, just retired from 15 years of full timing, so I do have some insight into that lifestyle. Trips for us range from a few days to our longest of six weeks. Anything from just a quick getaway in our mobile cabin to using it as a base camp for my Appalachian Trail section hiking. Check out some of the RV forums; you'll likely find like minded folks. Just to when your appetite, here's a good general purpose RV site: http://www.irv2.com/forums/
