Life on the Road…..Day 39

Well, it’s been 39 days of full time living in our RV and the FAQ is, “How are you adjusting to your new lifestyle?”  The most surprising thing to me is that it really feels like home.  You know the saying that “home is where your heart is”?  I wonder if it’s also true that “home is where your stuff is”!  So far, we seem to have plenty of space, enough stuff and still not enough time!  How can that be?  I’m learning that time is the most undervalued resource…… it flies by and you can never make more.  So we are aspiring to cherish the moments and spend more time connecting with family and friends.

 

In the last 39 days, Betty has taken us from Reno, NV to Southern California to Northern California (see previous blog posts) and by next week, we will begin our journey up the Oregon coast.  Of course, since we are wheeling it, plans are subject to change based on weather or whim!

 

I must mention that on Memorial Day, we finally visited Manzanar, one of the Japanese Internment Camps established during World War II, in Independence, CA just north of Lone Pine, CA on US 395.  It was a moving and enlightening experience.  It is well worth the visit.  Plan to spend time viewing the exhibits and film in the interpretive center before taking the self guided auto tour around the grounds.  For more information visit www.nps.gov/manz
