than I (i.e., 30's), they walked away from a couple of darn good
jobs in Chicagoland, bought an RV, and hit the roads. Both are
resourceful, and Dawn, especially, is adept at sniffing out any way
to come out ahead financially. If there is a better way, a
more thrifty way, or more profitable way to do something, she will
scout it out. And, of course, the Two Can Live As Cheaply As
One ethos is a help right off the bat.
They fund their wanderings by working car shows. They are both
prime-of-life and good-looking, so they are perfect schmoozing and
mingling reps, cheerfully providing answers to questions and guide
the visitors towards the sales people. The shows last a week
or two, and jump from city to city with a little time between.
J & D can choose how many shows, and which shows, they want to
work, and the companies provide each of them with a hotel room (they
represent different brands) for the duration of the show. They
have the RV with them, of course, but they sometimes avail
themselves of the free room for a little bit of extra stretch-out
Or, if one has a show and the other doesn't, he or she flies to it,
uses the hotel, and they reunite at a chosen destination. I am
so damn envious of that.
They are also clever enough to tap into a little Internet
income. I don't know the details of that, but you can bet I'll
find out. Between the copywriting I hope to be doing -- roadlifewriter.com
-- and the Key West Bar Hopping website -- called, cleverly, keywestbarhops.com
-- I hope to have some income following me around.
Jason and Dawn chose the Class C Camper for their mobile domicile
(mobicile?). For the two of them it's a good fit. I'd
love to go a similar route, but I dunno.
I've been a van man since 1979, but I wanted to scout out the
pozzies and neggies of all the other various options, even the ones
I knew I could not afford. Maybe there would be a feature of
one that I would want to incorporate into another. Maybe I'd
find things I do need or don't need.
My priorities: parkablity, standability, affordabilty,
stealthability, and comfortability. Right, Smitty?
So, here's what I came up with about each...
