Costs Easily Overlooked, Free Campgrounds, Working While Wandering, etc.
More On Cost
If you've ever read my book "Retire and Travel for $1000 a Month", you'll notice I meticulously included details on food, gas, and most everyday expenditures. The three main things I overlooked are: 1) Paying off your vehicles doesn't allow you to omit their cost from your budget -- they always wear out; 2) Even at the very low $1000 a month income level, your taxes need to be considered -- best to pay about 10% or so per month estimated tax to avoid the pain in April; and 3) The increasingly high cost of medical insurance requires that it be figured in also -- you probably can't get by much cheaper than about $300 a month unless you have help from your previous employer. One of the problems with RV travelling is that when your mobile, you can't go with a cheaper localized HMO. This is one area where mobility actually costs you more than being anchored to one place.

One of the money-saving areas that got omitted from my book is the use of free (and very cheap) campgrounds. I've read several books on the subject and have been surprised at the number of really free city parks, etc. that there are in the USA. Here is a link to our library where you'll find our old friend Chuck Woodbury's book on free campgrounds in the western USA.

Don Wright also has written a couple of really good references on free and cheap campgrounds. I've used Don's books and they've led me to some really interesting camping spots. His books are also in my library -- click a book to go there.

Something else I learned about recently is that there are organizations created to help travellers find work and employers find workers. Click the link on your right to check out the information on the "Working While Wandering" page.
