Six months ago, my wife and I (plus pets) decided to leave NYC and live month-to-month in new towns across the eastern US in search of a new place to call home.

Not having a permanent home has been at the same time liberating and unsettling.

Here are a few lessons learned so far:

As humans, we are far more adaptable than we think

We are quite selective about the “stuff” we acquire when everything must eventually fit in the car

Above all else, being surrounded and supported by friends, family, and community is what truly creates a “home”.
