If you wait for
get anything done.
I have always been a procrastinator, I hate it. I always seem to wait 'til the last minute to finish something. I am hoping that this behavior will change someday.
I have set a date to leave in the coach. November 1st. I am not ready, my house is not sold. If I don't give myself a deadline, I won't get out of here.
I put a countdown widget on the blog.
Maybe looking at the countdown every morning will help.
I haven't traveled in the coach since July 7th, and I miss traveling in the coach. The coach is parked in the driveway and I have been adding items, taking out things I didn't use and rearranging everything.
I have to leave and make the best of the situation and see where life takes me. So, I am taking off. I'm not sure what I am looking for, or what I will find.
I plan on volunteering and/or working seasonal jobs. I have applied for Summer 2012 jobs in Alaska, Colorado, Wyoming and South Dakota. When I get accepted for one of these jobs, then it will be time to plan my route to the state I will be working in.
I will be moving around and sightseeing in November and December and visiting with Diane and Karl for the holidays. Next year I plan to stay in one location for one to four months at a time. A few of the locations have a public transportation system close to the RV sites. When I traveled in June, two of the towns had a bus service that stopped right in front of the RV parks.
I am looking forward to exploring an area and having the opportunity to really get to see everything, without just driving through. Most people only stay a few hours or a day in the National Parks, I will be able to stay for a month or longer and explore the entire area.
I have joined the NOMADS program, they volunteer to help out church groups and different organizations with projects. I did not sign up for any specific projects with them. I have not planned my route for the winter and do not want to be on a schedule.
I am also a member of ESCAPEES, and they have rallies and meetings and activities I can join. ESCAPEES has a mail forwarding service, so I may become a resident of Texas.
I have to choose a state to become a resident of. I need to get my drivers license changed while on the road. The license plate on my coach expires on December 31st.
I contacted Blue Cross/Blue Shield and they told me I could keep my current health insurance policy, even if I move out of Illinois. This was a big worry, I am glad that I don't have to apply for a new health insurance policy.
I have been planning and making calls, and cleaning and sorting and selling stuff and painting and repairing and so many things ........
but I still have so much more to do............
I'm planning to walk around without a plan.
