Hello, I apologize in advance for my long post.
I have recently achieved my financial freedom and decided to go on a worldwide adventure.
My plan, in broad strokes, is as follows:
Drive an RV across Europe for several months.
Take a Transatlantic cruise to the US, and load the RV on the ship.
Drive across US and Canada for several months.
Then, either take a Transatlantic cruise to Europe, load the RV on the ship, drive home and end the trip there,
Or, if my thirst for adventure has not been quenched, take a cruise to Australia and drive across the continent for several months before taking another cruise home with my RV onboard.
Is there a cruise line that has car space? My google searches didn't yield a clear answer if this can be done and how. What are the costs associated with this, if this is even possible at all?
The second question is about the appropriateness of my clothes. It requires a background explanation.
I would like to share that I am on the autistic spectrum, and have OCD (that's the reason I would like to use and take my own RV with me rather than rent one wherever I am).
I'm highly functional, but also extremely specific about the things I own and wear, and how I do things.
The way I dress for example, or choose every single item that I own and use, is by trying every single model of trousers, shirts, socks, glasses, bowls, forks, sheets, cell phones, razor blades, toothbrush, soap etc. etc.
I grade each one based on my own internal scale, and then continue to only ever use the highest scoring model, and only that model, for as long as possible (I buy a large supply of that item if it's not perishable).
With clothes I have learned to include into my score the opinion of a friend or a family member who understands how clothes work for social situations, because I don't.
Therefore the only clothes I currently own are 21 pairs of black Columbia hiking trousers, 48 black Hanes cotton t-shirts, and 17 pairs of black New Balance shoes.
I have never worn anything else in the last 11 years, ever since I left my parents home at 18.
I have never worn dress pants, a tuxedo or a suit, even when negotiating $50 million deals, attending my best friend's wedding, or my grandmother's funeral. I have learned that this can be a source for judgement by some people, and I try to avoid certain events that have very strict dress codes. Just the thought of wearing different clothes makes me extremely uncomfortable and can trigger a panic attack, especially certain colors or fabrics that I don't like, for example just touching Denim, Corduroy, and certain wools makes me nauseous.
I am uncertain and worried about whether my current dress style will be appropriate for the dinners on the cruise, and I would like to hear your opinions.
Thank you for your assistance.
