A friend of mine suggested I take some time and sit in my Airstream. She said not to go anywhere but just sit and plan my month long trip.
So I packed up my books and headed to where Bambi is stored.
I sat in silence as I sketched out my route. There are hundreds of sites to choose from within the states I’ll visit.
While I highlighted and tagged pages, the owner of the storage place stopped by with his 90-pound Golden Retriever, Hank. I told him I was taking a month long trip and described my route. He offered to pump up my tires and check for potential cracks before my trip. This is what happens when you’re a traveler. Someone is always willing to assist.
I tend to be in my head a lot. Call it OCD or unfortunate characteristics of a planner. Being in my home office for extended amounts of time does not help me to get out of my head.
What I realized about being in the Airstream space is that there is a great big world out there to explore.
And this girl, her dog, her camera, her books and a few friends along the way will help connect to a much larger space.
And after all, space is the final frontier. Godspeed as you boldly go where no Yon has gone before.
Thank you as always, Thomas! xoxo
