an animated infrared picture I took at my property last Month. You may have to wait a minute for it to move.
I got a call from my accountant this morning letting me know that my personal taxes are completed. So that only leaves me with one more family thing that needs to be done, so it looks like I'll be hitching up and hitting the road in two weeks.
Now that I know within a couple of days when I'll be leaving I now need to concentrate on what part of the country I'll be wandering around in. And despite my best efforts this bit of information is still a blank spot in my brain. So I'm thinking I need to approach this decision in a different way than I normally do.
Usually I just think about where I would like to go just for the sake of being there, in other words I don't have a goal in mind when get to the place I've decided to go, I go there just to be there. But when I was thinking about, and planning the trip to the southeast for this Winter, I had things I wanted to do. There were places I wanted to see, things I wanted to take pictures of. So I would have a reason to be there other than it being a place that's warm in the winter.
Realizing this I started thinking about having a goal or a reason to be wherever I go this winter Instead of just wandering around aimlessly, which by the way I'm very good at, why not go someplace that would have benefits other than just being warm. like for instance places that were good for pursuing my hobbies, or where there are sights to see that were either new or I hadn't been to in a long time. Maybe having a goal would make it easier for me to think of places to be this winter.
I like to go to Quartzsite Arizona not just because it's arguably the greatest boondocking area in America, But because of the Big Show, and the extensive flea markets. I really enjoy being at Ben Avery's gun range in Cave Creek Arizona in the winter, not just because I can shoot whenever I want, but because it's a great place to do any trailer modifications I want to do, which is why I installed my solar panels there. So maybe I need to look at all the places I could go and choose places that are more than just.... warm. And that's whats going on in my mind right now
You can't believe how glad I am that the biggest decision I face at the moment is deciding in what warm beautiful place I want to spend the winter. Every day I remind myself how lucky I am to live this full time lifestyle, how blessed I am to have the freedom to live the life I choose, and how fortunate I am that decisions like that are my biggest problem.
