Ever wonder about traveling once you’re retired, but think it’s too expensive? Today, I met a retired couple who are working at campground in Maine and will spend the summer hiking, biking, and paddling during their free time.
Before retiring, the wife worked as a librarian, and husband was a framer – they are not rich people. They do still own a home in Pennsylvania, which they have rented out long-term.
Since October of this past year, they have been traveling up and down the East coast. What they love about the camper lifestyle is their freedom to move anytime they want. They plan on traveling across the whole country camper-style. If they get to a campground that they don’t like, no sweat, they’ll leave the next day.
When I asked the Mrs. about expenses, she said that it’s really reasonable. In many campgrounds you can volunteer in exchange for a camper spot, and some campgrounds pay their seasonal staff and waive camper fees.
