Coming up the Huge Hill to see the Horizon

We're almost home.

We should be back later today and once I am back I will be redoing some parts of the van. I have decided to take off in September after the Mackinaw race and I am overly nervous, and excited but also interested in how this will play out. After seven years of planning, renovating, and just overall excitement I finally decided to give it a try. I think initially I was hoping for a better job so that I would have more funds and I thought that if I waited something else would happen and that life would magically take hold and I would just "be" a part of this dream that I was longing for. 

Of course, that's not how life really works. Traveling in a van isn't all rainbows and sunshine and I know that I will run into problems along the way. I also know that loneliness is a part of that journey and I think over the last few years I have been hoping for someone to come along that will just join in and be a part of this great plan to "live life" the way I see it. This has failed twice already and in the end, I realized that I'm wasting my time (yet again I had this realization) and being too hopeful about the idea that others want this amazing dream I have to also be theirs. (I blame Instagram for that thought really)

So with that being said I finally decided to say **** it and just do it. I'm going to be 26 in September and what better way to contribute to my life than to really just jump all in butt ass naked to the world and just try and be this person I claim to be. I've adventured all over the U.S, I've been to five countries, made countless friends, and have seen wonderful things that will forever impact my life. This next journey will be scary, new(ish), and completely unknown but I am hopeful. If this works out I will be so glad that I finally did what I have wanted to do since I started my traveling journey and I have this feeling that I will run into something that will forever change the course of my life. I don't know what it is yet but I am ready to receive whatever comes. 

With that said I appreciate each and every single one of you for supporting me and for sticking around. I know that it's been a long time coming and we are finally coming up the large hill that I have been battling for so long.
