Monthly Report; February 2019
2019 is shaping up to be a big year for us. We’re imagining all we will see and do. We’ll start off in New Mexico, investigating if we will build a house there. Then we’ll summer along Puget Sound before drifting back south along the Oregon Coast and southern Utah to Tucson in the fall. Then, if our plans hold up, we’ll spend Thanksgiving on the Caribbean coast of Mexico. It’s a big plan, and almost certainly to change along the way, but that’s what we’re imagining now.
Tucson Arizona. That’s where we spent February. Hoping for sun and warmth we got cold and snow for the first half of the month. Then it got nice again. Still, we did a lot; visiting friends, mountain biking through the saguaro cactus desert, hiking into the mountains and canyons around Tucson, and a visit to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. It’s been great, but it will soon be time to move on. We’ll be back in the fall. There’s more hiking and biking to do here.
Recently I’ve been including quotes from other travelers and adventurers about long-term traveling and the fears and courage we experience about it. Here’s another one.
“Because in the end, you won’t remember the times you spent in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.” – Jack Kerouac
