I have been backpacking a few years and have changed my views about dwelling spaces. Before I start I am single with no children, so this will cloud my outlook. Anyway, back to the topic. I have realized that I will need, or think I need less and less space as I grow older. I have stayed for weeks in tents, and lived for years in a 350 square foot apartment. I have a 1,500 hundred foot house that i have have renovated. I am now in my 50s. I am thinking about selling the house and buying a used travel trailer. I have found that the older I get the less space I need. I rent one storage shed that holds all my tools and outdoor gear. What do you think about this as it applies to your lives?
