Thanks everybody! To tell the truth I'm not sure I will have enough income to survive, but I'm leaping out on faith that somehow it will work. I'm surely going to give it my best shot. Life without some risk is pretty dull, eh?

You could probably find some Camp Host type jobs or such:

And of course I'm sure you've already checked out this topic in the Full-Timing Forum: Time & Money Saving Tips for new full timers...

I'd also suggest checking out Technomadia. It's a young couple that full-time in an Oliver. They support themselves through technology, but there's some real good stuff and great reading here: Technomadia On the right-hand side, about half way down is some great links. And be sure to read the Common Excuses: Common Excuses | Technomadia

I'll live vicariously for a while, post often... I need the motivation

Congrats on getting a new Casita. We love ours still so much [compared to home ownership] that we're getting ready to go full-timing in it within the next few months. . .with 2 cats & a dog. Making modifications is half the fun with a Casita though. I have a list of our mods & equipment on my blog just to give you some ideas. Keep reading the forums too for more ways to personalize your trailer. Hope to meet you somewhere along the trail.

You have the same length and model as I've ordered. You know, I have never seen a Casita in person, so it's kinda like I've adopted a child from a foreign country (Texas) and we won't meet until I make the trip! I hope I chose the right model for me. I'm going to avoid looking at any other models until I have bonded with my own egg!

Good luck getting ready to fulltime. It's amazing how much work it takes to shed the old life and start the new. You have more experience than I do knowing whether you will like living on the road.

Hope to see you, too!

Sharon, I do plan to start a blog. I'm going to try to discipline myself to record all daily expenses, which will have to be kept in check as my income will be small. I want to help other people see if it is possible for them to fulltime on a tiny budget, especially women alone.

I plan to spend the first year or so in New Mexico.
Sue, congratulations on your imminent retirement and hopefully the fulfillment of your RV travel dreams.

If you are looking for travel tips on places to see in New Mexico, over on the forum there's a Casita [edit: I should have said SCAMP] owner with the moniker "DesertHawk" who has posted many great links and offered extensive advice on that state. You might search for some of those posts over there. Here is one example:
RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Roads and Routes: Roswell to Deming, NM

Happy travels!
