Free Location Independent Lifestyle Planning Documents
Dream of hitting the road but aren’t sure where to begin? We didn’t either. So we created these spreadsheets, documents and templates to help plan and budget for road tripping lifestyle. Feel free to use or modify them and let us know if you find them helpful. If you publish them, we would appreciate a link back to our site. Thanks.
LiveWorkDream planning documents are provided as is and without warranty. Agreda Communications claims no responsibility nor liability for the outcome of their use. By downloading them you agree to use at your own risk.
Budget Template & Expense Tracking: Thanks to Carol White, who published one of the first Road Trip budget templates we discovered in her book, “Live Your Road Trip Dream.” With her book’s help, we developed our custom budget planning worksheets to predict and track our expenses.Because we track our finances with Quickbooks Pro software, forecasting and budgeting is a breeze, since we already know what our spending habits are. We take the numbers in Quickbooks and pop them into this spreadsheet for an at-a-glance look.Our biggest piece of advice: if you want to take time off, then first get your finances in order long beforehand, so you can fully understand whether or not you can afford to do so. Being well-organized and disciplined is key to staying financially solvent whether you spend a year on the road or a go on a permanent adventure travel lifestyle.

Location Criteria Worksheet: Before we hit the road, we knew we wanted to live somewhere else, and do something different. This chart is from a brainstorming weekend we did to help us get clear on our mutual likes and dislikes, as well as our differences in what we are seeking. We suggest writing this out on a huge chart and hanging it where you can see it all the time.
RV Ratings Worksheet (PDF). If you’re going to travel by RV, look at these factors before making your investment. These are some things we thought about before buying our rig.
