Change is never easy, even if it is something that you desire. It can be very scary venturing into the unknown, but it can also be extremely rewarding and bring about new opportunities you never could imagine. It can be the start of a whole new chapter in your life and if you never dare to try you never know what amazing adventures await you.
I don’t want to wake up in 10 years thinking about the things I wish I had done. I don’t want to wait until …I retire, I have more money, its the right time, etc… because that time may never come. Sometimes, you just have to take the plunge.
So , David and I have decided to do just that. Several weeks ago, we purchased a 4 x 4 Sprinter van and we have decided to take life on the road. We will both be leaving our current jobs and traveling across the USA and Canada. David will be working on building the van, full-time, over the next 2-3 months while I continue to work a little bit longer. Our plan, as of now, is to travel for at a least year. We want to explore the National Parks, State Parks, Forest Service, BLM land, cities and states and regions we have never seen. We want to visit with friends and family that we seldom get to spend time with. We want to train and race in places we have only seen in pictures. We want to meet new and interesting people along the way. And we want to do all of this while we can, while we are young and healthy and able. To say we are excited is an understatement.
We have already started the build out with the installation of our roof fans. That was a bit nerve racking, cutting two big holes into the roof of a new van!! We have a lot of van projects ahead of us but we also have training and races to prepare for. Don’t worry, my training and racing posts wont disappear, that is still my passion and the reason I started this blog.
So, please follow along our journey, into a new chapter in our lives. I cant wait to share it with all of you.
