Once again, it’s been a long time since I’ve written. This time, I’ll make no apology. It’s part of who I am, and I’m learning to accept that.
The pics above are a little tour of my experience, so far. I’ve enjoyed it all, and cant wait to see what’s next.
You may wonder what motivated me to start this adventure. It was dissatisfaction with the life I was living. Without going into detail, let it suffice to say that I was very unhappy and wanted out.
The idea that Vagabonding could be a solution was first manifested as a Tiny House On Wheels. This was before they became a “thing”. At that time, you just got a trailer and built a box on it, including places to sleep, cook, bathe, and relieve yourself. They were rustic, cheap, and probably dangerous.
It didn’t take long to discover van living. Now, that was something I could get into. Cheaper than building a THOW, it seemed like a good option, until I saw someone who lived in a Prius. That set me to thinking about my own situation. A 1999 Ford Explorer is bigger than a Prius. What one person can do, another person can do. Yes? So, I started customizing my vehicle. One thing has led to another, and I’ve been living out of the Stew Wagon (Maggie) full-time for a little over a year. Before that, it was part-time on weekends and road trips, for about two years. I intend to continue this life as long as possible. My need to travel is strong, and I’m happier than I have been in many years.
Thanks for Liking, sharing, and commenting.
~Enjoy the Life you’re living.
NOTE: I’ve taken a job at a mill in the White River National Forest or Colorado. I’ll probably be here for a couple of years, but I’ll still be traveling and learning. Stick with me, and I’ll share it all with you.
