DH and I aren't quite ready to RWOL, but we're planning for it in about 8-10 years, after our kids are through college.

We've decided to split our time between Gulf Shores, Alabama, and Hot Springs, Arkansas, so have bought a condo in each place. The condo in Gulf Shores we do short-term rentals on, and use it ourselves a couple of weeks of the year, so essentially, other people are making most of the payments on that one. The one in Hot Springs is near our home, so we use it lots, and family and friends do also. We will have them both paid off in 6 years.

We figure when the winter weather is bad in Arkansas, we'll be at the beach, and when the tourists get to be too much in the summer, we'll go to cool-in-the-summer Arkansas!

Plus we figure the kids'll WANT to come and visit if we're always either at the lake or the beach!
