"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off your bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails, Explore, Dream, Discover."
Attributed to Mark Twain
Hello and thanks for visiting! My story begins in 2009 when after 16 yrs of being in the rat race, I decided to pursue a childhood dream of mine, which was to lead a nomadic lifestyle living rent free, and on a very small budget. I blame this fantasy on national geographic, and watching far to many episodes of Grizzly Adams.
Leaving the normalcy of the masses would be no easy task. Financially I would be able to afford such a simple lifestyle, because of a few wise financial decisions I had made in the past, and lets face when your monthly bills are $125 you don't need a large bankroll I also make a small income from you that's right you, so if something in one of those ads intrigues you please go check it out.. Next task was to get rid of all my material possessions I had acquired over the last 34 yrs of my life later realizing that I had not owned these possessions, but in fact they had owned me. After several months of major downsizing my only belongings could now easily be loaded into the back of my pick up truck. Now the third task was leaving the steady job and steady income. I would definitely miss the people I had worked with, but will not miss that freaking alarm clock every morning or the redundancy of doing the same thing day in, and day out.. The last task, and definitely the most difficult was simply doing it, leaving behind all the securities of steady and safe routine, and heading into the unknown.
Just kidding it wasn't really that bad
The day had finally come the truck was loaded, and it was time to leave Minnesota, the place I had called home since birth. Leaving was gonna be sad, unless your leaving in the middle of winter snowstorm I was certainly not going to miss these. Six hours later the storm finally had quit I was on my way into the unknown, well not really I was actually heading to my folks house in southern Arizona. Upon arrival the temps were in the 70's what a change from a mere 20 something hours ago, it would be here I would sell my fancy pickup, and buy my old 89 Dodge camper van. Which is still my current dwelling, but wont be forever, not sure what I want next maybe a sailboat, simply spend a year hiking the states or maybe the world! Thanks for visiting hope you enjoy!
