Life has been crazy lately. I am working lots but it will be great once I get some money saved up and more experience in this career. Getting time to actually work on the van seems to be a challenge these days but I will have it into at least a camper. I figure work the winter and then in the spring afford a great rig. Then its onto the future as we know it. Life is pretty good, wheels, a roof and the cat, and a job.
But alas I long for the road but it takes time and the difference in the quality of the trip will be whether prepared or not. So it is that, prep time. I still live minimally and sleep on my tri fold mat in my apartment. I am not buying a bunch of stuff to outfit my space when its temporary. I have been thinking having a home base is a good idea though but with a travel trailer or something, more on those thoughts later. The more off grid the better. I prefer to buy used, eat organic meat and make as much of my own stuff/repair as possible. Although I have never been a cheap skate they called me this at work and I thought to my self, never. I just choose to spend my money on travel/trips that bring me joy, and on the gear that makes those trips enjoyable. Not on superficial things that will mean didly when I pass.
