Whoa! It’s been a while.
It has been a busy month and a half and we’re doing well.
We’ve went from Los Angeles to Pismo Beach to Santa Cruz to Pleasanton, CA (just outside of San Francisco).
If there’s one thing that moving all of the time will do is make you very introspective.
This trip was something that we had been thinking about since we left New York City. At that time, we thought, let’s give Madison another shot. We love Madison, but our curiosity about RVing full time grew and we decided to make it happen. This trip was half escaping the winter months of Wisconsin and half of us trying to figure out if we should move somewhere else. We didn’t want to straight-up move anywhere as we did when we moved to NYC, but didn’t know if or where we would want to move. Living out of an RV seemed like the perfect opportunity to figure it out, shake things up and see people and places we would never get to see otherwise.
And that we did! We’ve shaken the crap out of our lives and in turn, we have figured out a lot about what’s important to us on a day-to-day level. What we were looking to get out of this trip was inspiration, freedom and adventure. We got all of that, but realized that the things that can sometimes make life feel mundane are also the things that make you sane and able to build: routine, stability, familiarity, ease, etc. We absolutely love traveling, but have come to the conclusion that we need a stable home-base to be able to do the long-term building that we love so much. (I’ll be sure to elaborate on this in a future post.)
So, if you need to shake your life up a lot and get down to what is really important, RVing full time is a good way to get to know yourself and figure it out fast.
Where we’re off to next?
We’ll be in Pleasanton for another week and a half, when Corey’s folks will be joining us as we head to northern California. So excited to see them!
