Travels
Queen of Trades; Travel and Photography

I finally found the car that I need to start my traveling journey. It is an Xterra 2000 and it can pull up to 3500 pounds. What is even better is that it is a stick shift car. Just driving it from Fort Walton to Niceville I can already tell that it will take some getting used to. It even sounds different which threw me off and honestly made me a little nervous at first but after a few miles, I started to understand how it runs. I usually never do purchases like this and for me, it was a little weird to have that moment where I literally hand someone cash that I worked hard to earn. It was exciting, nerve-wracking, and honestly empowering in a way.  

 


Now that I have the first step done in my traveling plan I feel like I can finally breathe a little and relax. I feel like I can take the rest of the time this month to actually get things done and ready before I head out to Iceland. 

Things have finally started to turn around and go in the direction I need them to.

Another day at the grind. Another day where we are looking at vehicles and hoping that one of them is the one. We will see by the end of the day if I will have the next step in my dream or if the search will continue. Along with that I only have five days before my birthday and I am pretty stoked about it. To celebrate I am asking that you guys take a look at the artwork and see if any stands out to you. It would mean a lot if you guys would purchase some and help me say goodbye to a few pieces. Thank you all in advance. 

 

 

 

 

Thank you guys so much and I appreciate all you do.

Right now we have switched to another plan. One that makes more sense for what I am trying to accomplish. Honestly I am pretty excited about it. Instead of just getting a camper van and living with one vehicle I have switched to getting a small suv and a camper van to pull behind it. Honestly it makes more sense but I was against it for a while because I didn't want to add two more vehicles to my insurance. It just seemed like more of a hassle. After some debating though I finally decided that it would be more worth the time then just getting an older van and completely gutting it to make it my own living space. 

See while I am gone I would take my normal car, stop the insurance and then leave it in storage. This way I wouldn't pay for three different insurances. Right now we have five different vehicles that we want to look at and I am hopeful that one of them will be the one that will help me to make this journey happen sooner rather then later. 

After I have the suv I will then have to dig around for a camper. The fun will be deciding what kind of camper I want to purchase. Now that might take me a little longer but honestly I am pretty excited to see what pops up. There are a lot of really good options out there for reasonable prices. I just hope that the camper that I want to purchase will come my way soon. I'm really itching to get what I need so that when the time comes to can take off and live the life I want to live. 

 

Honestly I'm excited and I can't wait to see what happens. Life is good.

A few days ago I bought a drone and I got to play with it for a few days. I learned something that I didn't expect. The picture quality on the holy stone HS120D is garbage. Almost quite literally. It is a $175 drone on a normal day but when I purchased it the price was $125. Usually, Holystone has a good rep. It is one of those companies that makes some of the best drones for the price they sell at so I figured that it would be a good match. What I didn't know was that this particular model has some issues. First, it freezes the app after you finish taking a video or photo. Quite literally. When that happens I found that I had to reset the entire thing to get it to function again. 

Second, it makes my phone lava hot. Almost quite literally. Not only is that ridiculous but its kinda scary because it could fry the phone. Third, the quality of photos and video it takes is just ****. I don't get how something that expensive could take terrible photo and video but it does. When I figured this out (It was after some major testing in the air and crashing it a few times) I immediately decided to return it. I wasn't going to have something that expensive turn out to be junk. 

So I packed everything up, printed out my slip and wrote a complaint to the people who sold them. They tried to see if I would reconsider but I told them straight up that their drone was ****. Almost quite literally. They were pretty upset but they understood why I sent it back. Money is pretty valuable and when you spend it on big purchases you don't want to be disappointed. This one was in fact disappointing. 

If you are looking to purchase a drone, don't buy the Holy Stone HS120D. It is **** and you will be disappointed.
