Into the Wilderness

2021 is one for the books. Exactly one year ago today, Jan 11, 2021, I set out to travel our beautiful country in an RV.

Five months, 13,000 miles, 75 Cities in 18 different states later, I found I had developed new skills living in an RV and a growing awareness of how liberating a simpler life can be.

Then, exactly 6 months ago today on July 11, 2021, I set sail into a daunting but even simpler life. A life where everything is distilled to the first two levels of Maslow's hierarchy of needs, where survival is not only the primarily, but the only and constant focus.

3,500 miles later, 13 more states and more beautiful landscapes than I can count, I can't help but reflect on how much bigger my world is after this year, how I got to know so many great people, and myself better, and how I learned new things and faced new challenges every single day.

Today, it's cloudy, but not too cold. No wind. We had a little race going with this tree truck. Hank decided he needed to do some chewing.

I passed under the Louisiana Airborne Memorial bridge on I10, and crossed from the Atchafalaya National Wildlife Refuge into the Attakapas Island Wildlife Management Area.

Seventy more miles to complete this epic journey!
