Time to roam............

This past week I have had more issues with anxiety than in the last year!! I think my mental system is telling me its time to hit the open road, and head west!! I was planning on going to Quartzsite to the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous in January anyway, but there really is no reason not to go ahead and go now. This will be the perfect opportunity to put that $500 a month budget to the test!!

The chances of finding work next spring/summer is great during the Big Tent RV Show in Q-zite in January, so why not just hook up and head that way?? Maybe my mental system has had enough of just setting still.....been here since mid August, and the internal drama is pushing me over the edge!! I know when I get there my friend Charlene will have room for me and my rig next to hers, and she will help me find my way around the town, so why not just go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In my budget I posted here last week, I allowed $150 for gas, and if lets say its $3.75 a gallon that would be 40 gallons a month. My truck loves gas, only getting maybe 12 miles to the gallon, and that translates out to 480 miles a month....so obviously I won't be doing a lot of needless driving when I get there!! Go to town once a week for supplies, and the rest of the time just sit and enjoy the solitude, which by the way is something I REALLY enjoy.....a guy can get a lot of thinking done setting in the desert!!! Maybe I will just hook up in the morning and head west.......stay tuned good readers.
