I neglected to write anything about us. We’re a couple who has undertaken a few experiments in downsizing our lives. Like everyone else, we face adversity, relationship challenges, family issues, friend issues, etc.
We started our journey in a travel trailer parked in the large backyard of a friend in rural Mississippi near the coast after spending a number of years living in New Orleans…in a house.
After deciding that the travel trailer was ill designed more than “too small”, we began our search for something more appropriate. Since I had also realized that I’m not really a nomad at heart, that meant a house, somewhere, or a piece of land on which to park our travel trailer.
We have found it. It’s on the edge of a small Mississippi coastal town. As of early May 2012, we’re waiting to close on the purchase.
