Still on the Road
As a fulltime RVer with no traditional home base, I am still on the road. I have been living and traveling in my RV for over two years now, rarely staying in one place for more than a week or so.
Check out my previous 111 blogs going back just before I started fulltime RVing, such as my first post Trial Run Prep Day – October 12, 2017
Although I journaled privately, I intentionally opted out of frequent blogging the last couple months while I navigated some of the curve balls we have all faced in 2020.
I have decided to jump back in and continue to share my journey. My intent continues to include discussing my travels, keeping my friends and family updated, and provide insight into my fulltime nomadic lifestyle. I may also ramble on from time to time about topics of which I feel passionate or knowledgeable.
During the last few months, I have been in the eastern part of the country. Essentially, I have been wandering with purpose throughout Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio. In the midst of a pandemic, I take appropriate precautions while traveling.
Some of the disruptions to my normalcy was Habitat for Humanity canceling the builds designed for traveling RVers, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park suspending the volunteer program engaged in high level of visitor contacts, such my position.
One productive project I accomplished was changing my domicile from South Dakota to Florida. On the surface that simply means Florida license plates on my truck and a Florida driver’s license in my wallet. Why did I switch? Great question, stay tuned and I will answer in the next blog or two.
I have seen probably a hundred utility trucks – more accurately called Digger Derricks and Derrick Trucks – headed west. As Hurricane Laura roars through the Gulf and makes landfall, my best goes out to all my friends in Louisiana, Texas and other areas that may be impacted. Please take care and stay safe.
It was exhilarating to see the utility trucks caravanning to help others. Be it for money, fulfillment or goodwill, their days ahead will likely be strenuous and stressful, yet bursting with accomplishments. Godspeed to all the first responders.
I am still on the road and traveling. I look forward to sharing my journey.
