Houseless but not homless
Simplify is our motto and we sure have done this. Downsizing was quite the challenge but a great experience. Did you ever realize how much stuff you have tucked away in those closets and cupboards? Why did I need 3 pans of the same size? Why did I need extras of almost everything and canned goods to last 10 years (many of which were out of date)...were the local stores going to go out of business tomorrow or were we going to get that huge storm of 5ft of snow so we'd be stranded for a month? I don't think so! So now we live with the bare necessities and it feels wonderful. It doesn't take so long to pick out what you're going to wear in the morning when you only have a handful of things to pick from. We can focus our energies on the great outdoors and the things that matter most to us...how refreshing!
We'll be here at Outdoor World through July 13 then we travel a few miles up the road to Thousand Trails for 2 more weeks until July 26. From there our plans are general and we'll keep you with us as we travel along the open road. We hope you enjoy our blog as we enjoy the trip. Don't forget to join us along the way...but only bring one carry-on bag! Til next time...
