We are Pumped!

The weather here has been cold and windy one day and warm and windy the next. Yesterday was a warm windy day. We seem to get more done on those days. Last night we made another dumpster visit with a truck load of trash. I never realized how trashy we were!

On the way home from our dumpster visit Dawn made the remark that no one seems to notice how much we’ve done around the house. A few people have made comments about how bare it’s looking but I don’t think it has really sunk in. We talked about the possibility that maybe no one believes that we’re really going to become fulltimers. My mother knows that we are serious but I think she is the only one. She is excited for us and looks forward to coming to visit us when we are staying in interesting places that she wants to visit.

I think part of the problem is that other people can’t phantom the idea of living in an RV and staying wherever you want. They can’t wrap their heads around the notion of NOT being tied down to a job, house and other obligations.

Let’s face it, most people live in a mental rut of how life should be lived and can’t think outside the box. We’re conditioned as children that we must reside in a stationary house and working long hours at an understaffed company in order to earn a good living. Because of that mind set we spend our earnings on a lot of material things that are suppose to make us happy. The more money we make the more money we spend. It is a crazy!

We then become so attached to our material possessions that we feel we can’t live without them or feel trapped because we have invested so much just acquiring them. It is an endless cycle.

Dawn and I are fortunate enough that we are both on the same page and agreed that we can do without all the material possessions. We want to get out there and live our lives.

There is so much we want to do and see. We’re not going to let any material possessions keep us from moving forward and doing what we both enjoy doing. EXPLORING.

We’re looking forward to visiting all the interesting places our fellow RV friends have visited. We want to visit the east and the west coasts. We want to live along the oceans. We want to eat fresh seafood and relax on the beach. We also want to see everything that lays between those oceans.

We’re pumped!

We could be packed up and out of here tomorrow with little effort. We just need to sell the house.

Travel Safe
Dawn and Denise
