I am nowhere near done with the planning phase but I wanted to get this posted sooner than later. As I am sitting at an airport in Ft. Lauderdale, it seemed rather fitting to discuss travel plans. As you know from my last Vlog, I helped some friends in the Florida Keys by driving a moving truck from Florida to Michigan for them. They needed a driver and I obliged. Next thing you know I was driving a semi across country. After spending a few short days in Michigan, visiting with family and a few friends that I didn’t get to see on my last visit, I was on a plane heading back down south. You are probably wondering if I am going to tell you my big plan… Yes I am. After a lot of thought, little to no planning and absolutely no idea if it will work…..Here it is:
35 National Parks to celebrate my 35th Birthday!
I don’t have a start day yet, but it’s soon. I will be leaving Florida and heading west. Back into the unknown. Back on the long road. New opportunities to test myself, to grow, to learn and become a better person. I will be on the road for the next 6-8 months.
I am heading west, through so many places I have never been. I am beyond excited for this road trip and it will truly be the journey of a lifetime. I do not know where or when this journey will end and I love that. While I am looking forward to exploring with some old friends and some new ones, I am equally excited about the time I will have with myself. I am doing something so few get a chance to do. Something I almost never had a chance to do. I am turning a bad situation into a good one and it all starts with my attitude. I am excited to see and visit places that I have never seen or been. I am excited. I am an explorer.
