I Did a Thing…

I am hitting the road again. Anyone that knows me, this isn’t a surprise. This time it isn’t in a Jeep, or a plane but a toy hauler. I bought the truck and trailer already. I really do feel like I am redefining the American Dream. I tried the whole buy a house again and settle down and it just isn’t where my heart is. For me, less (material things) is more and I love to connect with nature and people. In doing my...

I also had to organize and plan missing parts for my upcoming trip. I had to unpack my life...

Finished the Camino!!

Day 29: Hit the 100km (60 miles) to go mark today!!! I don’t want it to end. First thing this morning I saw John. I was starting to think he was a fake and didn’t exist. He is in my Camino Facebook group and started the day before me and we were in the same area. I finally found him. I taught him my recently slowed down way of stopping in every village for a drink or food, talking to anyone that would listen, and being in...
