I changed my mind. Of course, that's not all that odd because I change my mind all the time about where I'm going to go and what I'm going to do. But before I went to bed last night, I put things in the cabinets that would normally sit on the counter so they wouldn't fall off during travel, I wanted to be able to leave whenever I felt like it in the morning. But when morning came, as it usually does, and I had lost all interest in leaving Quartzsite today and, for no particular reason, decided I would leave tomorrow.
I have given up on trying to justify the things I do with a logical reason and determined that the only reason I need is; "because I want to." All my life, I've had to justify everything I've done, there had to be a reason for everything, and if there wasn't a justifiable reason, then I couldn't do it without feeling bad.
One very simple example is in my past life, if I wanted to sit down in my easy chair and relax, there had to be a reason. Was I tired from a day at work? Was I resting up for something difficult I had to do later? Was I taking a break because I deserved it? Everything had to be justified.
But my full-timing philosophy is; I don't have to justify anything! I can explain something if I want to, but I don't have to. And that's a whole different mindset. Not having to justify anything to anyone, including myself, removes a lot of stress from my life.
Fortunately getting rid of a lot of stress wasn't all that difficult for me since I've never been much of a worrier; I've always been more of a "look on the bright side," go with the flow" and "keep on trucking" kinda guy.
The price of fuel.
This truck camper is even smaller than mine, and it fits nicely on this cute little red 1/2 ton truck.
Even when you feel half dead, you gotta hang in there, just like this Palo Verde tree is doing.
Yeah it's a red truck, but it's a different red truck. I seldom see people pedaling a bicycle anymore. If I heard that the most popular Christmas present this year was an electric bicycle, I wouldn't be a bit surprised.
