End of the Road?

It sure feels like it.  The bus spewed another leak as I was getting ready to roll south for the Skoolie Palooza in Quartzsite, and after a weekend of consideration, I decided to leave it there, and move on to another vehicle. It has been a very sad week, even tho the bus has given me much grief over the last few months, it WAS my home, and it gave me a TON of freedom and introduced me to a new life. I will miss her greatly.

I sit here typing this in the dark, at the beach house, after a transformer blew, leaving me searching for flashlights. Man I miss the bus. Hooking up solar this week, so I can live comfortably, on the grid.

  1. Don, I hate to hear this. I know you do too. If there’s anything I can help you with, let me know.

    I know you will find something and get back on the road. Good luck on your search.


  2. Great report on your pause. Where are you going to stayin Florida? I’ll have to stop by and catch up.

  3. Glad to see it’s not going to stop you permanently, but man that sucks! I’m sorry you had to abandon it (and some of your stuff?)

    1. I have learned, one of my great lessons – that stuff is really not that important. Time is the stuff that means so much, and we cant really buy anymore.

  4. I hope this isn’t the end of the adventure for you but if it is, it was one heck of a ride. You should be proud of your accomplishment. There’s not many adventure vagabonds out in the world these days.

  5. “Time is the stuff that means so much, and we cant really buy anymore.”
    While attributed to many people, it was Ray Cummings in the 1922 science fiction novel, “The Girl in Golden Atom” who said “Time is nature’s way of keeping everything from happening at once.”. As we age the space between things happening contracts. I think at death, everything happens at once. As Carlos Casteneda said, ” Choose a path with heart, all paths lead to the same place.” I think you did that Dred.

  6. I am going to trust what you say and wait patiently for the day you are back on the road.
    It is a cool thing you have done.
    Do more. Make more coolness.
