So the time has come. We have now spent the final 6 months dwelling in our RV, not removed from dwelling and close to all of our family and friends. Right this moment we are literally hitting the highway and dwelling the Nomad Life for the subsequent 2 years.
We’re going to cease and see a number of buddies who dwell out of state over the subsequent couple weeks, however then, the place we’re headed subsequent is a thriller.
Haven’t we been planning this journey for the final decade? Shouldn’t we all know the place we’re headed? Sure we positively have been speaking about doing this for some time. So lengthy actually that everybody stored saying we had been all speak. Nicely guess what, we’re doin it.
And so far as having a plan on what we’re doing and the place we’re going, nah.
My complete stress crammed life has been deliberate, and scheduled, and ready for, and educated for. I’ve acquired the gray hair to show it. So right this moment we’re leaving all of that behind. I’m hitching my pony to my wagon, tipping the brim of my hat down, then cracking the reigns and getting the hell outta dodge.
We positively have it a lot simpler than the pioneers that headed off to the west with out realizing what’s on the market. We’ve acquired our highways, and grocery shops, and bridges. We don’t even want to consider fjording the river, we will simply drive over it.
The thrill tho… that electrical feeling… We’re doin it.
For most individuals freedom is simply an concept. An idea that all of us inform ourselves we’re having fun with to the fullest whereas we’re chained to our bosses schedule to pay for a home that the financial institution really owns for many of our lives.
Not us. Not anymore.
The place will we go?
I dunno, I’m gonna comply with the setting solar till I can’t see it anymore. We’ll make camp for the night time underneath the celebs away from the massive metropolis. We will all stretch our legs for a bit, the horses can relaxation, and we will get some slumber till we really feel the heat of the solar kiss our pores and skin once more within the morning.
And for the primary time in a very long time, there’s no hurry to saddle up right this moment. No, Right this moment we will take our time and sip our espresso whereas we watch the canine run by means of grass kicking up the morning dew as she performs within the open air. Even she will really feel it. Even the canine face has a smile that gained’t go away.
Right this moment we get to look to the horizon in each course and resolve which approach we need to go. Will we head south in the direction of Texas? I hear they’re giving every household 4,000 acres to lift cattle.
Will we head north to the Dakotas? We will comply with the bison by means of the Black Hills, and disappear into the dangerous lands like Jesse James.
Will we head west towards California? I heard folks say there’s a lot gold all it’s a must to do is stick your shovel within the floor and you’ll choose up a nugget the dimensions of a potato.
Hell, I don’t care which approach we go, so long as we don’t keep right here watching our lives dwindle away just like the fog of your breath within the wind on a chilly January morning.
For me I don’t actually care concerning the vacation spot, I’m trying ahead to the journey.
I’m trying ahead to revisiting The Dakotas. I can’t wait to go again to the Unhealthy Lands distant from anybody else. Possibly we’ll simply head to Yellowstone and hopefully I gained’t need to combat a bear this journey. Hell possibly we’ll go proper previous it and straight to the Big Redwood Bushes earlier than exploring the California coast.
I’ve mentioned for a very long time I used to be born within the improper century. Not having a plan for our locations is as shut as I can ever come to that Lewis and Clark expedition into the unknown lands previous the place the map ends. Every single day goes to really feel just like the day my spouse mentioned get within the automobile lets go for a drive, and we ended up at Niagara Falls.
We will take this journey as critically as we would like or not critically in any respect. Greater than seemingly it is going to be a mix of each. I can see us doing all of your regular journey weblog stuff like mountain climbing within the Grand Tetons, and the next day heading as much as Washington for the Sasquatch conference.
Possibly we’ll head off into the desert and camp within the again nation the place nobody else has been for a century, or possibly we’ll spend per week at an RV resort hanging out with different nomads within the sizzling tub buying and selling tales of our adventures.
We spent the final decade taking small journeys throughout the nation to go to the entire decrease 48 states at the very least as soon as, and now we get to return and go to them once more and spend much more time in all of them. We have now met some superb folks alongside the best way and are actually trying ahead to creating new buddies on this subsequent model of our adventures.
Small city America right here we come.
When you have any, and I imply ANY ideas, regardless of how bizarre, on locations we must always go, or issues we must always do, please tell us. We have now stopped in all places from the Big Ball Of Twine, to Captain Kirks Future Delivery Place, to The Museum Of Pure Historical past and Yellowstone. Assist us make this subsequent 2 years as attention-grabbing and as quirky as attainable, and if ya see us on the highway, Come Say Hello!
Nicely, I assume the one factor left to do now could be whistle for the canine, crack the reigns and holler Yippee Ki Yay.
