Hello Fellow Sitters, My name is John, I’m 55, recently retired from teaching Middle School Science for the past 20 years. Recently divorced and no longer tied down by a mortgage, so “I’m free to do whatever I want any old time” name that tune! I discovered TrustedHousesitters when I was reading an article about a young couple who ended their lease on a very expensive apartment in San Fransisco and are now living in a van! Saving a great deal of money!
When I decided to retire last year my first thoughts were to convert a van into a camper and travel across the good old USA! Unfortunately, things don’t always turn out the way you want them to, the divorce and sale of the marital home did not occur until August of this year just in time for COVID to start ramping up. Even with this somewhat bleak COVID outlook, I signed up with TrustedHousesitters last week anyway! Hope springs eternal! Also, if I have to spend another winter in New England… Grrr
Any advice for a newbie flying solo I would greatly appreciate it!
I wish you all the very best and stay healthy and safe!
