On our first cross country trip, left Los Angeles in July, to Maine, Florida, returned just before Christmas. We got hit by Hurricane Sandy when we were in Long Beach NY. The entire island was underwater. Out truck we parked on a bridge, so it was one of the very few vehicles not destroyed. But I put all out stuff in a garage, which collapsed, letting everything be soaked in the toxic water. We spent a week trying to clean stuff, but ended up having to literally back the truck up to a dump and push everything into the dump.

But by this time, we had been on the road for July, August, September, and October. So we knew what we actually needed. When we left LA, we took everything we could imagine we would use, but we just replaced what we actually DID use. Less than $500 for everything, including clothes.

We don't live like homeless, we don't use plastic or paper anything. Tablecloths, candles, glass, china, silver, two chairs, folding table, custom pillow top mattress (that is inside the cab of the truck, so it was not destroyed) with high thread count linens, feather pillows, down comforter, etc. Shovel instead of a head, this aint no typical RV, we generally camp in the wilderness, quiet, stars.
