Trip Status Update – 4/16/21
We’ve come a long way, baby. We pretty much ended up using our blog as our trip status update over the past four years. Most recently, we shared our current plan for our final non-pilgrimage year, here. Our youngest are heading off to college in the fall and we will be making a sort of soft launch. We will be taking a number of longer poker trips over the next year as we solve many of the logistical issues of spending full-time on the road.
Most recently, we looked into the tax implications of working outside of our home state of Massachusetts.
We also need to figure out our mail situation, how we will ensure internet access on the road, and any health insurance implications.
In the next year we also plan to rent an RV for a brief vacation to help us decide whether we will be travelling by RV or AirBnB/VRBO once we hit the road for real.
In the meantime, we have a lot of exciting trips planned for the next year!
