Want a Solution to the High Cost of Living and Hectic Pace? Live and Travel in an RV
With rents and mortgages in the Bay Area skyrocketing and the freeway gridlock increasing, the number of people becoming disenchanted with life in this high-priced and hectic metropolis has been growing. More people are leaving the area and seeking alternative living styles, either temporarily or permanently. Some of those alternatives include the van life movement and people living and traveling fulltime in their recreational vehicles—or RVs—both growing in popularity.
Once thought of as something done mainly by retired people, fulltime RVing and van living is attracting an increasingly younger demographic frustrated by the high cost of living, long commutes, and confinement associated with living in metropolitan areas. According to the RV Industry Association, more than half of RV buyers are under the age of 45. These mobile dwellers are finding creative ways to make a living while they experience the freedom of travel, as evidenced by the popularity of RV and van life blogs and websites.
"I knew when it got so bad that I was envying the homeless for what seemed like their endless freedom to do whatever they wanted rather than commuting hours every day to a dead-end job for barely enough money to pay the mortgage, I needed to make a major life change," Eliason said. "Letting go of everything and hitting the road in a motorhome was a drastic step, but it was a life-changing journey. I saw some beautiful and amazing sights, and gained freedom and confidence. Best of all, I made wonderful friends and rediscovered the passion for living I had lost in the struggle to make a living."
Confessions of a Middle-Aged Runaway chronicles the challenges of living in and managing an RV and the joy of freedom experienced by a solo woman traveler. It might help others to make a similar life-changing journey. Learn more at HeidiEliason.com.
