Well… it is spring 2016 and the plan so far is to leave for an extended trip some time in the winter 2016/2017.. who knows… But we have started planning a few things. One of them is trying to figure out a budget and somehow get an idea of the costs involved in leaving our home and live on the road. For this we have started making a budget in Excel. Trying to add as many expenses as we can come up with and also adding gas prices and living expenses such as food and lodging. .
