I have told myself for years and years that I couldn't possible make a living as a writer, writing about my favorite things, travel and history. Huh... well, it just shows that I can be wrong every once in a while!!
I am so excited to finally create this blog for you. It is here that I'll be sharing all of my travel adventures. Look for monuments! Museums! Tourist traps! Hiking! Camping! And everything in between!
This blog is for those who are unable to travel and want to live vicariously through me... this is for those who are wanting to plan their own adventures and are looking for ideas, tips, and maybe even warnings, lol... this blog is for people who just enjoy hanging out and talking about camping and campfires, hiking and canoeing, history and museums... this blog is going to be all of those things. And whatever your reason, and however you found me, I am so happy you're here.
I am smiling so big right now as I type these words because I... we ... have just changed the trajectory of my future.
If you've followed me for any length of time, you may know that my dreams of traveling and camping almost came to an end. I was going to give up everything and attempt to be happy in a home on a some property hopefully near some water.
And I may have been happy.
I may have been very happy and it just might still be in my future. But try as I might, every road block that could go up- did go up right in front of my little cottage future.
It was then, after one broken straw too many and a medical diagnosis that told me that life is fleeting, here I am, pivoting back to what makes me happy.
Travel and history and writing.
I don't have a camper at the moment, but I do have Xander, my Toyota Tundra, an annoying black cat (Oakley) and a passion for adventure, so I'm basically ready to go.
Until I am able to embark on my next adventure in the new year, I'll fill up these pages with many of the adventures I've had this year in 2022 and in 2021. I didn't know I "should" have been blogging, but brace yourself... its purge is coming! Lol! I knew there was a reason I took so many pictures! Lol!
I don't know what the future holds. No one does, of course, but I do know that life is too short not to allow your innermost desire come up and feel the sunshine. I want my final days to be filled with precious memories. Beautiful places. Beautiful faces and I am up for the challenge... however long it lasts.
And, I'm so glad that you are with me, my friend. A journey is always better when experienced with others. Be a part of my memories, won't you, by participating in my present. Let's see what we can trouble we can get into!
