Could you imagine to be happy with this lifestyle: you have a bottomless credit card but are only allowed to own what you can carry. No house, no car, but you sleep in hotels, eat in restaurants and use cabs and public transportation first class.

No way. Impossible to carry all my clothes, shoes, makeup, computers, books, etc. Unless I am allowed to continually rent a road crew and trucks.

That's the dream. I don't need to own many things and I want to travel the world.

Good poll question. I think I could swing it.

I live that life at least half of the year and it sucks.
Always new hotel, new rental car, new restaurant, new airplane, new state, city country; yet it always seems the same.

On second thought. No, it would be awful to only have what I could carry.

That's basically the ultimate travel setup. I could definitely travel the world, visiting friends and family along the way, for the rest of my life.

I'm in! We don't really own anything anyway. We just get to use things until it wears out or we do! Hotels make great homes, you don't have to move every night.

I'm in too. It sounds much simpler. Not to mention the clothes you could buy on a regular basis because you'd have too.

Taking a motorcycle that doesn't really fit me every time I want to go for a ride, or a car that isn't really suitable every time I want to go on a trip? No tools (I fix and build things for fun, not because I'm cheap)? No hobbies? No thanks.

What if I'm renting an apartment, furniture...? I think it would be fun. If I won the lottery I would probably quit my job and travel the world anyway.

When I was single and had no kids, yes. Now, not on your life.

I can carry my bike, so I'm guessing I can still own that... Then I could totally live that lifestyle.

I can imagine being happy with such a life. It would take some getting used to.

No, it would mean losing all my progress in all of my PS1, PS2 PS3, PE4, N64, Gamecube, Wii, GBC, GBA, DS, 3DS- blah blah blah etc etc itnwould be terrible because gaming is awesome and I would lose all my saved data and a large part of my childhood.

I think I could live like that but I would have to have a full understanding of what my mission was and why it required me to exist as such. It would take some dedication.

I love living here but right now it is raining out I like for my head in a blanket of my body

Probably not, I like all my art supplies.

Yeah. I actually have hobbies that make me feel just slightly more of an awesome person than my desire to travel. So much as I like to see places, I wouldn't be able to stand it.

I could deal with that. It would be inconvenient, but better than working. I would just travel the world staying in Ritz-Carlton hotels and dining at the best restaurants in the area.

Would hate that. Don't like public transportation and what I want most is a paid for house with a big deck with a really nice yard.

You could be an itinerant preacher. Jesus was, and without the credit card. But alas, hospitality there and then was a value, unlike here and now.

True, and I could sling a djembe over one shoulder and still play.

Oh yes, I'm single with no ties. I'd travel. I have a few items of sentimental value I'd gift to my sister, so I technically don't own them but can see them on visits - you know, photo albums and diaries.

Inspired by action novel character Jack Reacher. He lives that way, sans the credit card, he has to work.

Read one of his books, it was good, but would hate it
