Full Time RV Living - What will you do when it's time to hang up the keys?

If you are a full time RV’er, you know there will come a day when it’s time to hang up the keys. 

Your decision could be for any number of reasons, you’re tired of traveling, you miss having a house, you need to be close to doctors due to illness, any myriad of causes that will require the decision of no longer traveling full time.

When that time comes, do you have any plans, or ideas as to what you will need to do?

In a recent article Smart Money Magazine listed the Escapee’s C.A.R.E Program as a viable option .  The premise of the article was to discuss various retirement communities that are available, where you would be surrounded by others who have the same interests, such as artists, intellectuals, etc., in other words. . .niche communities.

Because I am a planner, always thinking ahead to the next project, (drives my hubby crazy) we have already researched the C.A.R.E. facility. . .but long before you are ready for that much assistance, you can join the Escapees Group.  

Talk about a niche. . .they are definitely focused on RV’ers, and RV’ing. 

We joined Escapees long before we ever started traveling, or needed their mail services.

It’s a great way to gain an RV’ing education!
