A few random pictures from my mini-vacation. This is an old house in Breckenridge
I'm going to take some things out of the Arctic Fox and put them in my storage room in Divide tomorrow. I've been meaning to do this ever since I got back to Denver this spring but driven by laziness and procrastination it just hasn't gotten done.
I'll probably spend the night somewhere in the area since the little bronco camper's still on the back of the truck and come back to Denver Tuesday morning.
Which reminds me of how convenient it is to have a camper that goes wherever you go without getting in the way and instead of being a problem and adding difficulty and worry to whatever you're doing it actually gives you more freedom. And to me of all the freedoms I can have, freedom from worry Is at the top of my list. I think I mentioned before that my attitude towards worry is, if the problem can be fixed, fix it, and if it can't be fixed, don't worry about it.
It seems like even though we may not have much of anything to worry about we will make something up, after all you can always worry about money, or your health, but worries like that don't accomplish anything except to make your life miserable and what's the point of that? like I mentioned before I try to follow what Bobby McFerrin sang about in his hit song, "Don't Worry Be Happy" I try my best every day not to worry and just be happy.
Now one of the ways to be happy is to remove as much worry from your life as you can, and one way to do that is to remove the things that bring worry into your life even if it's only for a short period of time, and that's kind of what this blog post is about, the lack of worry I have when I'm traveling with the little Bronco slide in camper. Soooo...
When I'm traveling with the Palomino Bronco slide in camper I don't worry about....
Four extra tires on the road that are wearing out and can pick up a nail and go flat at any minute.
More bearings wearing out or seizing up.
Finding gas stations that are big enough for me to get in and out of.
Windy days that making driving hazardous.
Hoping I can find a pull-through camp site.
Going slower than everyone else.
Getting pitiful fuel mileage. The Broncos fuel mileage is 50% better than pulling the Arctic Fox.
Finding a place to park in town.
Camping where it's not allowed. I can leave the top down, sleep on the sofa, and look like I'm shopping at 3 o'clock in the morning.
Backing up.... I know I've mentioned it before that's how important it is.
Going to places I wouldn't dream of taking a trailer.
There's more but I think you get the picture. Going somewhere with the little Bronco on the back of the truck is hardly any different than going somewhere without it in terms of worry and hassle. But it gives me the ability, on the spur of the moment, to spend the night somewhere if I decide I want to, and how do you get more free than that.
