Being 45 now, I feel as if my 40’s has been all about counteracting all of the damage I have been doing to my body, pretty much all my life. Apparently I have never been properly hydrated, correctly nourished, or gotten enough cardio-activity. I fluctuate on getting too much sun and not enough sun, so I’m sure my vitamin D is all wrong.
I wonder if being 50 years old will be the age that I give in and accept defeat.
Believe in the power of the campfire medicine.
Have you experienced the power of the campfire medicine?
This is a gif that I made of my daughter running on Dan’s Trail at Cypress Glen campground, Florida. I notice that sometimes it doesn’t load. I’m sorry if that happens to you.
Our first night in Campy.
As you can see, Blue Mesa is beautiful.
We selected a pull-through site, as we were still overwhelmed with all the information from the whirlwind walk through with Humphrey RV. Unhooking and hooking up again felt like too much too soon. We filled up our water tank and called it good. After all, we had been camping in a tent for a full week and this was definitely a big step up. We were going to be boondocking for the next several months and we didn’t feel like we needed anything fancy.
We would love to camp here again. However, going up the steep mountain passes were quite slow going. I apologize to all those frustrated speedsters caught behind me as we chugged uphill on our #newbie run.
(Oh, and Happy Birthday, David!)
Owning a home is no joke. When we sold our house, I was happy, relieved, excited, anxious, and overwhelmed. Buying our new home was an adventure. We bought our RV without ever seeing it in person. Nervy, right?
I’m sure you’ve guessed by now that it worked out and we are pretty happy with our new home, on wheels.
Ain’t she cute? Her name is Campy Camper.
But my house, I’m ready to go.
House for sale.
We love this house: birthed children, buried beloved pets, hiked, gardened, shoveled massive amounts of snow, chopped tons of wood, loved, laughed, lived here. Sanctuary.
It’s all upside and inside out from here.
What in the world are we doing?
