My whole life ,I have wanted to live on my own. Relying on just me. Not a mountain man kinda life but a Wandering Man.
    To see and live more natural. To not be inside just one place. To travel the roads and small towns. Meet the people. Skinny dip in every lake and river. Lay under the stars at night. Ride in the sun. To go places I have never been. I want to be a citizen of The United States and I want to live in all of it. 
    I don't want to be 'homeless' as much as houseless. My home will be where my heart is. My bicycle and trailer will be where I live.
         I will not be a bum but a Living Man.I intend to keep up my blog(whatcnido-whatcnido.blogspot.com)and hope for lots of ad clicks.  :)  Maybe get a position with a mapping company or a photo place. Work jobs when I need too. Live off the land as much as possible. (wild fruits and vegetables are awesome)
  My wife and I are separating and I don't have any plans. I love her very much but we have changed. We are going our separate ways as friends. My kids are grown. So, I now have my chance without hurting anyone. I want to take it.

      Please help me get started on this new life.
