2000 days

Today I celebrate 2000 days of full-time living on the road. I must admit, that when I started this adventure it was not to live as a nomad. In 2010 it was just about going on road trips to see family and the National Parks along the way. I found myself taking more trips, lasting longer each time and by the end of 2011 I could not take staying put for longer than a few days at a time. When opportunity arose to just live on the road full time, I took it, and I am so happy that I did.

Sometimes I feel like I am a jaded traveler, complaining about people and places at times, but the reality is that I know I am lucky to have this lifestyle and grateful I have it with a partner now. My nomadic life has been pretty easy, especially after hearing stories of others who have tried. I’ve had a lot of luck, and spent all my karma points in these past 2000 days. It’s been worth it.

Here is to another 1000 days, by which time I will no longer be on the road, but on the sea. But first, a year back in the van for an intimate tour of the West Coast and Baja again. That is our plan anyway, but we all know how plans change.

    What’s this mean? I guess I missed something?

      Never really made any announcement on the matter, just that sea-life is the next adventure for us. Starting in 2019 or so.
