TAKING A DREAM IN TOW
My husband, Jim—he’s a saint—entertained all of these big questions. The idea of leaving behind our beautiful home in the suburbs somehow wasn’t scary to him. He was actually excited by the idea of paring down and living small. It was his genius idea that the house should be on wheels. “Sophie,” he said, “it will be like camping every day. You’ll just have a slightly bigger backpack.”
So we set about making our dream come true. We researched and planned until we settled on a team to work with. We found a flatbed trailer to build on, next came the frame, then the roof, and finally the doors and windows. Before we knew it we had hitched our new life to a Ram Truck and we were on the road.
We drove past farmlands, through forests, climbing up mountain passages until we arrived at our ultimate, remote campsite. That night we sat under the stars and smiled. There was so much space! As it turns out, living small makes room for much bigger things.
