the Next Chapter…
Four months of staying in one place. FOUR MONTHS! Haha. It was not what I was expecting, but with the USA having four seasons, we of course were going to need to stay somewhere warm for the winter. For us that was southern California. When I think of southern California I think of LA & San Diego. No we were far south. Right by the Mexican border actually. Anyway, these past few months have been less about adventure and more about working online, going to the gym, doing taxes, fixing our slide, enjoying warm weather and chillin in the hot tub. Well, this chapter is ending in a few days and a new one will begin…
There are times I get frustrated with living in an RV. I think anyone who does this full-time probably experiences the same thing; waiting for the hot water heater, hitting your head on something, dishes overflowing, etc. What makes it amazing though are all the places you get to see and the people you meet. I think Washington DC, New York City and the Grand Canyon have been my favorite places we have visited so far. While the area that we are currently in is not the most interesting, it is probably the best RV Park we have been to. The weather, hot tub and the people are great! We will most likely be returning for next winter. I say most likely because with us, you never really know where we are going to end up – haha!
What I am most excited about for the remainder of 2019 are the national parks that we will get to see. We also have not seen our families in quite a while, so we will also have an opportunity to do that.
I love being able to avoid cold weather. I love visiting the iconic attractions of America, and also the hidden gems. I love having the choice to just sit in my chair, stare at a mountain and enjoy the warm weather or going out and having an adventure. I like having freedom. Freedom to control my work schedule. Freedom to roam the United States and beyond. When we had our dog walking business people would mention that we had freedom. And we did. We were our own bosses, but the level of freedom that we have now is so much greater than before. I am currently living a dream of mine while working towards another dream. A bigger dream. As I write this, it seems very much like my sleeping dreams – how I can be in one dream and then shift into another dream.
Although traveling is a dream of mine, it does not mean it is 24/7 happiness. I’m happier, but it doesn’t mean that things can’t be frustrating or difficult at times. Life is not perfect. It is also interesting to think how my dream can be someone else’s nightmare. This life style is not for everyone. I am not the type of individual that thrives in the 9-5, have a boss, stay in one place type of energy. Although I work 36-42 hours per week, I usually never work more than 6 hours per day nor do I have a long commute. My commute is me getting my ass out of bed, walking a few feet over to my computer and turning the coffee pot on. I like it haha.
I don’t know how long we will be living in a RV, but I am currently enjoying the simplicity of everything now. One thing I know is that after seeing the USA, we will be wanting to explore other countries. I want to learn other languages and experience other cultures. My current job is helping me not only improve my communication skills, but it also gives me a chance to speak with people from all over the world. When I learn about different countries I get excited. What can I say, I’m an explorer – this is who I am.
