Today an interesting video popped up of a friend, a very well know RTW/ Adventurer/ Record Breaking motorcyclist, Nick Sanders.
I can relate to what he's saying, when you live on the road and do it for a prolonged period of time possessions and belongings seem very trivial. On my motorcycle right now I have all i need to survive, anywhere, in any country, in any season.
If I were to return 'home' what do I really need, somewhere small, for my small amount of possessions, maybe I could join the 'Tiny House Movement' or watching Nicks video, maybe a barge, or small river boat could be my calling.
I have dual citizenship you see, US/ UK so as property prices get away from me and I have no chance of affording a house in Central London where I grew up, average prices now hover close to the $750,000 range for something completely average, and static...would a barge be a good option?
I did a little research and the answer is a very resounding yes, I could buy a barge and locate myself in central London, albeit have to move every few weeks, you are not allowed to be permenant sadly, but for a price of around $50,000 I could buy myself this, and live wherever I want. It now seems that this is an option, and a great one as a digital nomad, for a lot of people in the UK this is becoming an option because they are priced out of the housing market.
...but if I wanted to do the something similar in the US what would my options be? Tiny House or boat, where could I do this in the US and be happy and not get caught up in to much licensing and taxes to any one location, has anyone on here taken the plunge and reducedd their life to bear minimums and can tell me about their exeriences?
