After 20 years in tech, and four layoffs in 10 years, my wife and I changed up our life. We downsized and moved to the mountains. Three and a half years later, we hit the road in an over-loaded Subaru with our two cats for the mobile life. We have since upgraded our vehicle to something larger that can tow, and purchased a 1978 Red Dale trailer as our tiny home on wheels.
