Random Thoughts While Traveling

Random Thoughts While Traveling

Prior to starting my trip to pick up the Casita I purchased a Garmin GPS devise. When I programmed in the first leg of the trip I chose a route that was off the beaten path. Less main highway, more country to see. I enjoy driving. I actually enjoy driving alone. I find that I tend to think about things when I am on the road that I don’t usually think about. This trip was no different. As I traveled…

The Countdown has Begun

The Countdown has Begun

In 43 days I will be picking up my Casita. The countdown has begun! I will be on the rode very soon. I’m so excited, but also a little bit scared. I find myself thinking “what am I doing, why am I doing something so stressful!” I question whether or not I can do this. Just because there are other older woman traveling alone it doesn’t mean that I can do it. It may be too scary to be out…

The Importance of Having a Dream

The Importance of Having a Dream

I think I have always been a dreamer, a planner. There is something about dreaming about next step, the next direction that has always kept me going. In many ways, that is what my dream of traveling is all about. It is wanting to have the stimulation of a promise that something different, positive and new awaits me. It’s the promise that I’m not done yet, that I have more life to live. I say this, yet I don’t hate…

But…. whenever I go to a high desert area I feel totally at peace. I…

Inspiring Folks

When I first started thinking about and investigating RV travel I had no idea that there were people that lived in their RV’s full-time. I stumbled along several of these nomads that have blogs, forums and/or YouTube videos. I have been fascinated by this lifestyle and have come to envy the freedom they have. I don’t know if this is where I am ultimately headed or not, but it is a dream of mine to at least travel six months…

What is a Casita?

What is a Casita?

So, you might ask, what will you be traveling in? I’m so glad you asked that question! After hours and hours of searching the internet, reading everything I could get my hands on and going out and looking at various recreational vehicles I decided I wanted a Casita. It was my choice for several reasons. They are light weight which makes them easier to tow and easy for one person to manage. That will allow my primary vehicle to also…

Why travel, why now?

Why travel, why now?

I guess I will start off by telling you that I am a widow. Being a widow is hard, at least it is for me. It is lonely and you don’t quite feel like you belong with the rest of the world. My husband was ill for several years and I was his caregiver. Somehow, that became the largest part of my identity. With his death I was left without that identity and felt very lost. Over the last three…
