Hear, hear Bret. Almost the minute I bought my trailer, I knew I'd never have to sleep under a bridge. Believe it or not, that was actually a relief. My trailer is decades old. What I could sell it for, wouldn't give me enough to live on for more than a brief moment in time. But I could live (comfortably) for a very long time in it. YMMV

What a relief

Sounds like a few of us have thought about that what if???
Another thought that has popped in my head. What if I got rid of all of this stuff...How little can I live with? I think I could do with a whole lot less. If the housing market was a little better, I think I would be willing to find out.;

It's a comfort to know that we can be hooked up and down the road within minutes.

Knock on wood that that need will never arise . . . .

I'd agree too Bret. If it came to survival we could make it in our 'egg', no problem! And also - let's all hope we never half to.
I work for a missions org and I'll tell you, many many people in the world would love an 'egg' home!
I think we need to remember that often - even if we struggle with recession, or whatever.
A second 'egg' home is likely only affordable by 1.5% of the worlds population - if that!

Happy (and blessed) New Year All!
