I think you could do it. If you don't like it you can switch back to homeowner. Your kid is certainly strong enough to handle it.

When my kids were young(10,5,4,3) and I separated from the Air Force, all 6 of us lived in a 25 foot travel trailer for over a year. We traveled for work, South Carolina, Texas, and finally Kansas. Looking back now, it was an awesome year. We really did a lot together as a family. Don't regret it for a minute. Now that the kids are grown and gone I think it's time to be a little more nomadic again. The tough part for me is giving up the shop and obviously most if not all the Jeeps.

I definitely won't miss the horses and all the work that goes along with that. The putting up hay, the feeding, the stall cleaning, fence building and maintenance. You can have that.

Let us know how it goes for you. I'm actually pretty excited for you guys. You are a great family and good things will happen no matter where you're at. Enjoy it!

Maybe you could youtube your travels and monetize the whole thing.

People that think HOAs are a PITA have never dealt with oil drillers and their lawyers trying to drill in their strawberry patch or the department of the interior telling them they painted their house the wrong shade of green. It's all pay-to-play and you don't get told the rules until your already all-in. Having "land" in the "boonies" where you can "do whatever you want" is an illusion, not a dream.

Damn I would love having oil drillers come drill on my land I would use the income to move to a place where I could grow stuff!

You're missing the point, but to clarify, they don't have to pay you to extract "their" minerals on "your" land. They have to compensate you for your loss in them doing so. If you don't make money from the land they want to use (like a cattle ranch for example), they don't have to compensate you because you can't prove a dollar figure in losses.
That said, I hope some extraction company does wave a big enough check in front of you that you can get your momma to pull chocks, move to town, and you can get a job that pays what you're worth... So you and I can finally have a beer in Ouray in what, 287 days? ;)
