Five years into living full time in our Airstream has been exciting, tiring, humbling, a time of learning, growth, hardships, etc. We’ve been places. We’ve seen things.
Last year we started to look seriously at properties to settle down and hopefully simplify our lives in certain aspects. For myself, working a regular full time job while trying to travel presents a lot of difficulties. It’s not nearly as flexible as it could be if I worked for myself, or only worked part time. I find myself missing out on a lot of experiences in places we travel to because I prioritize my work.
We searched in vain in Washington state, but that didn’t work out too well. On our way back to renew the search, we stumbled across a promising property in Memphis TN. Memphis has always been in the back of my mind because Beth’s sister and brother in law live there. It’s a neat city with a lot going on. In any case, long story short, we purchased the property largely sight unseen. Traci did go over and give us a video tour and the property is just amazing.
We’ll still have our Airstream, we’ll still travel, especially when it’s too cold or too hot, but most of the time we’ll be holed up in our little abode doing whatever it is people do in their little abodes. That will be a new exploration; gardens, swimming hole, mowing, sunning on the deck, hot tubbing in the winter, visiting with family, eventually new restaurants, museums, blues bars, and more.
Below is the listing description, followed by some of the pictures. The property is nearly 6 acres and only 30 minutes to downtown Memphis.
