FROM THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN

IMG_1290.jpg

Gregg and I don’t know what we are doing. We are learning as we go and will continue to once we get on the road. Gregg finally figured out what the different amps and voltages were and how they worked in the RV about two weeks ago after reading about this stuff for a few months now.

Everyone keeps saying its not “if” she is going to break down but “when.” Not if we get a flat tire but when. and I pray she doesn’t catch on fire as we ride down the road from a gas leak, or blow off the side of the road from strong head winds.(These things actually happen and I have read a lot of horror stories :/ ) I will learn how to read road maps, how to change a tire, hell maybe even how to change the oil. There are so many factors that could go wrong along the way. But there are so many things that are going to go right also.

Today marks ten days away from moving completely out of the house. Tonight and tomorrow I am going to finish painting the bathroom and touching up the walls. Then next week on the 28th and 29th we are moving out/ moving in! Gregg and I will have everything out of the house and into the RV by the 30th when we leave for our first trip with Nancy. We are spending New Years in Arkansas, hoping it isn’t freezing ,or we will have to bust out the heating blankets :). These toymo RV’s don’t hold much heat. Thankfully we will be hooked up to a camp site and not dry docking. We aren’t quite ready for that yet I don’t think.

I cannot believe how fast time is flying. My last day to work at Free People is January 5th, my last yoga classes to teach at M Theory will be January 19th, last yoga classes in Tallulah are January 25th, me and Linds go to Vegas January 26th-29th, then Gregg and I say our goodbyes the 30th and 31st! Febuary 1st, we are Florida bound.

We are headed to Alachua Florida where I was yoga teacher trained in July this summer to stay for a few days. I can’t wait to be back at the Temple of the Universe. Micky Singer is amazing. He has two books published if you wanna check them out. ( The Untethered Soul and The Surrender Experiment). I’ve read the Untethered Soul and it was really great at showing me how many walls and boundaries I still had up based on fear alone.

After Alachua, we are headed to Miami and the keys to wait the winter out. We will be there until mid March. We will be back the 11th-18th to celebrate birthdays, weddings, and to pick up the top of our wedding cake from my mom to celebrate our one year anniversary on the 26th.

We don’t really have a plan on where we are going after that. Originally we said we wanted to do the east coast first, then mid states, west coast, then head up to Canada to get to Alaska. But, now I don’t know. I think we are going to go wherever the weather is best suited for our comfort and wherever the wind blows. Maybe Mexico next? We still have to get some paper work squared away for the pups before we can leave the US now that I think about it!

Anyways, this is really surreal and time is moving so quick. I hope you’re staying warm on this chilly Monday (at least here in Mississippi).  We officially announced the big news about the trip publically. If you are on instagram and want to follow along with the story ,you can find us under the name @thejourneywithn . Blog coming soon!

Don’t forget to find something to be thankful for today.

LOVE AND LIGHT

FANCY NANCY

This is Nancy! She doesn’t look that fancy, but I assure you she is the fanciest RV in my world 🙂 After a very stressful Thursday last week, Gregg and I went to dinner and had two very large beers each. We spoke with Teeka and she assured us that we were not going to become the next scene on a special effects movie while driving down the road.

So, with his reassurance, we are still going on our adventure. The worst that can happen is that she breaks down and we have to sell her for all we can, rent a car, and come home!

She is almost finished. We decided against getting solar panels installed on top because they would be a little overkill with the batteries and generator that we have. Now all we have left is to get new upholstery and put in new floors! I am sure at some point we will start a new blog to keep documentation of all our adventures and I will keep you updated as that comes about! Time seems to be flying by the closer we get to our leave date.

We still have to finish selling furniture, finish storing the things we are not selling, finish painting the house, take the dogs to the vet one last time before we leave, get insurance for Nancy in Canada and Mexico, finish getting my name changed, get a new passport, and I am sure there are some things I am forgetting!

I stopped teaching my Monday night yoga class so that will free up some time to get stuff done but still we both have really crazy schedules and probably will until we leave. Its going to be such an amazing break once we do get on the road and have nothing but time and the open spaces!

I hope you’re having a sweet Monday! Don’t forget ,no matter how much is going on that there is always always an eternal spring of peace and love within each of us, and all we have to do is remember to tap in to the breath to find it!
