Inner Work

Thank you to all my followers for sticking with me over the last several months even though this blog has not been about RV's or adventure.

I have been doing some serious soul searching and am trying to decide the direction I will take in this next phase of my life. I still believe the full-time travel is what I want to do, I just need to get a lot of loose ends tied before I can get serious about getting on the road. Life has handed me so many changes over the last few years, divorcing after 23 years, my daughter getting married, & my son preparing to move on to his own life, sometimes I feel like I've lost my direction. So many years as a husband and father where everyday was about taking care of my family, now that is all gone & you start to feel a little out of place. On the one hand the new options are exciting. I can do anything I want, anytime I want & there is no one to say no. On the other hand, options make it harder to continue doing things you don't have to do anymore. It was much easier to go to work everyday when I HAD to. Never really gave it any thought, I just did it like a zombie...day after day. Now that it is gonna be just Snoop Dog and I, I really don't need the same things I needed as a family man.

I struggled with a bout of depression recently that pretty much took away all my ambition as far as working on Dora or really doing much of anything. I'm feeling much better of late and am starting to feel like getting back to some of my projects. Hopefully, things will continue moving forward for me.

Thanks again for hanging in here. I don't plan to stop the humorous stuff, just hope to have more RV related stuff to talk about too. 

When I grow up, I want to be a kid.
