You remember your physics class, don't you? You learned one of the laws of physics: "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction?" I actually learned that not in physics class, but driving a home built wooden go-cart I built down a hill when I was about 10 years old. Yep, I ran into a rock wall at the bottom of the hill (Brakes? I don't need no stinkin' brakes!).
Seems that the momentum I built up kept me going into a patch of weeds when the go-cart came to a sudden stop. :cO As you figured out by now, I survived, none the worse for wear (except maybe my brain got scrambled, producing my warped sense of humor), the go-cart? Well it was back to the drawing board and the next one had brakes. My dad still marvels that I survived childhood.
Looking forward (actually drooling over it) our chance to go fulltime in an RV, my dreams were about traveling to exotic locations across America, seeing the finest sights, the greatest historical places and enjoying exquisite meals at eateries that the average person would never see in their entire lifetime.
Those travel dreams are starting to come true. Since we started fulltiming last December, we've driven across the United States from Virginia to Oregon, down the west coast to San Diego, then eastwards, through Arizona and currently stopping in San Antonio, Texas. We've seen some neat things, met some great folks and yes chowed down on some great (and not so great) food.
The unexpected consequence of living the fulltime life is not having any crushing need to do most anything. We like making list of things we should be doing, but with all the time in the world, there is always tomorrow. Why wash the Journey today when I can do it tomorrow? Laundry? I still have a clean pair of skivvies, so why put a load of dirty clothes in the washer? Food shopping? Tomorrow, we still have peanut butter, jelly and a couple of slices of almost stale bread left.
It seems that nothing has to get done until there is an almost desperate need to do so. Tomorrow is becoming my new mantra. After years of having to get things done on or before impossible deadlines, I'm really enjoying the kicked back life. An unexpected consequence of fulltiming. One I'm really learning to enjoy!
