Reading some of the comments in the "homeless" thread, made me think about the people that do more extended tours. I am curious if people that do more extended tours are concerned about their future? Along with some other questions.
I can see if you are young and plan on spending a few years seeing the world then head off and start your career but there are some folks that are a bit older. ar you not worried about having money in your old age? I am an older male with not family or real ties. If I sold everything and lived very simply on tour I would have plenty of money to last several years but I worry about what to do about providing for myself later in life.
Also don't you get bored on tour? I have other interests at home that I could not participate on an extended tour. First there are my friends. We all go sailing together from time to time. I enjoy dabbling with electronic design and building projects and designing various software applications that might get my interest. I doubt I would be able to participate in many of these on tour.
Then there is the comfort of my nice, warm and dry home. If I wanted to do an extended tour, the only way I could afford to do it is to camp most of the time which I imagine is true for most extended tourers.
Any thoughts on these items?
