Hi, I am Lindsey Wood and I am assisted by my husband ‘Woody’ who by the amount of shoes in our caravan, should be known as Imelda. We live in Melbourne and retired in 2012. After spending a lot of time considering whether we could really afford to retire it eventually dawned on us (after seeing friends struck down well before their time) that it is not a case of ‘can we afford to retire?’, but ‘can we afford not to retire?’ From the very moment that we stopped work we realised that time was running out for a healthy active retirement! Being fervent travellers who had already owned several trailable yachts an assortment of tents and had ‘done’ two motor home holidays in New Zealand. I guess you could say that we love the idea of camping in idyllic places.
The day after we retired our ‘new’ caravan arrived.
