my retirement plan





I love vintage "cupcake" campers or Caravans as they are called in the UK.
 Right now I am in the Pop-Up Camper phase b/c I am camping with the boys.
But someday, when the kids are grown and gone I would love a little bit pull-behind camper that I could take on Flea Market exploration road trips and all-girl getaways to the beach.
Wouldn't that be great?

But Caravan's are not just great for camping - they are also great for:





As Art


For selling Cupcakes

For a European Vacation



and as a doorstop

See, they are completely practical and useful in every way.
A good plan don't you think?

  1. I agree! But I want an Airstream because my family had one when I was growing up. It would be so fun to gut it out (or hire someone else to do that) and then decorate it!

    I enjoy your blog!

  12. Your retirement Plan sounds exactly like mine!!! A vintage Air Stream or Gypsy Vardo tricked out in Bohemian opulence and used to tour the Flea Market circuit and Beaches would be BLISS!!! If you want to see a Caravan to die for... check out "Magnolia Pearl's" Blog... I drooled all over my keyboard! *wink* She's also an amazing designer for those Free Spirits like ourselves.

  14. Retirement planning is all about knowing what you want and being disciplined towards achieving it.Planning for life after work is not so difficult once you follow a few simple steps:

    1. Determine an amount that is required.
    2. Determine how much additional is needed.
    3. Allocate investments.
    4. Wait, review and reallocate.
