Vacation Preparations

Sorry about no blog yesterday, it was a crazy morning and I didn’t get the chance.

As I look forward to my upcoming vacation in mid July, I see that I only have two paydays before it. I also realize that there are a few things that I want to take care of before then. I am starting to make a list and see what I can do to take care of these items before last minute panic hits me.

I am looking ahead and this time planning to book campsites for at least the first part of the trip, rather than rely on dumb luck. There are a few places that I want to be in for specific days, so those I will book but leave the rest wide open and take my chances.

This is because, in reality, I do like an unplanned vacation. As in, I plan to go down to the coast, but not my exact itinerary or exactly where I will stay, what I will do or when. That just gets to feel like too much work and less of a vacation. 

As far as the items I want to get, they are typically small, just in case, items. As in, I don’t want to be stuck in the middle of nowhere, needing this one little thing and not having it. This may seem strange, since just this past weekend I threw out a bunch of stuff. Once again, even when buying things, I ask myself: 

1) If I need it 
2) Is it worth its: 
a. Price
b. Weight
c. Space (it will take up).

Again, this is a necessity for the way that I live. As far as how things are going, it is getting easier now that the weather is warm and I have access to water and a dump station. 

I have seemed to found a way to stretch my electricity out so that running Jenny for 4 hours once a week will last me. As far as my water goes, that too I can stretch out for at least a week, perhaps two.

Each day that I am out here brings me closer to Debt and therefore total freedom. This brings a smile to my face and keeps me going. 

As always: keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward.
