    I don’t know if it helps or not, but I have a 2004 Durango that has worked beautifully for us. 3 rows of seats, seats 7 passengers, the rear row of seats (which are a 40/60 split) fold flat. I can fit 5 bales of hay at a time in mine and still have room for 5 people to ride. Gas mileage varies from about 16 (in city/on steep hills) to 20 or so (I averaged 24 mpg going across country on I10). Caveat: I have the 5.8 Hemi engine; the smaller engine would probably get better mileage. Mechanically I’ve never had any trouble with it and I’m at 167,000 miles. And I think they’re KBBed at less than $9K. Might be worth checking one out.

    If your dreams are crazy then sign me right up!!

    Living in the UK I’m not sure quite how many of our exotic teeny tiny cars you get over there, but if you can find any I suspect they might be cheaper (less desirable) to buy, and they will have great mpg compared to the native gas guzzlers.

    If you can find it how about something like a VW Sharan or a Seat Alhambra?

    You are an inspiration, seriously. I wish I had the guts to be this honest with myself about what I want from life, and I wish you every success.

    Hey girl! I have a 2004 Honda Odyssey. We love it! We have a bucket “trunk” that I can fit a ridiculous amount of stuff (atleast three bales of hay at one time, over ten bags of dog food, etc.) in. If I need more room, I can fold the back seat down completely flush with the floor and have even more room. Also, the two middle captains chairs come completely out extremely easy. With the back seat down and the middle seats out I have moved a full size mattress, box springs, and bed frame and lots more. I get 18-20 mpg in city. It has about 120,000 miles on it and we have had no problems! We have put maybe $1,000 into since 2006. Hope this helps!

      I think the Honda Odyssey is the one I would consider. I’ve heard from a bunch of people who have that van telling me how great it is!

    I am new to your blog and am now a huge fan. It is wonderful to read the thoughts of someone I have never met, so far away, with thoughts, dreams, and goals so similar to my own. Cheers to a life without mini-vans, white-picket fences, 2.5 American children, and two parents working 50 hours per week! I think your life is beautiful and you can live it anyway you deem best for you and yours. Keep thinking positive and sharing the optimism! It is contagious.

    It’s amazing how you can feel like you know someone without ever actually meeting them. I’ve been following your blog for a while now, it’s not often I find someones blog that truly keeps me wanting to come back and see whats new. I have to say you are a real inspiration. So often I have wished I had the guts to be so completely honest about what I want in my life. While I don’t have kids yet, your posts have given my hubby and I something to think about. Like your life money has never just fallen at our feet and our ideal lifestyle never quite meshed with out family. It’s nice to see another young person in the world so in touch with what they truly want and really go for it :D I wish you the best and I know I’ll certainly enjoy reading more!
