July 30th, 2015 by Off The Grid

My goal for being off the grid by yesterday has been delayed! We drove out to look at and possibly tow the camper back but it was not ready. I was REALLY trying to be off grid by the first of the month (March 1st) but everything became coldly realistic that the camper was not ready to move or roadworthy. So after a long beautiful drive with country scenery my friend and I drove home disappointing after a long emotionally tiring day. The good thing is now that I have actually seen the camper I can now start to brainstorm about building and working on the off grid camper projects.

The day after our trip out to see the camper I was up until 4AM packing the last few boxes for my move. Yes I had been packing, sorting, throwing away, and giving away STUFF! Yes every time you move you realize that our consumer driven society has made its way into our everyday life because.. we all have way too much stuff! We seem to accumulate more than we need and moving into an off grid camper meant letting go of a lot of non-essentials. Along with sorting and moving life also kept me moving on the personal front with my ex-girlfriend. For some reason this seems to be a major transition point in my life with regard to everything from friendships, life stuff in general, moving from on grid to off grid, and my job / career front as well. Why is so much change going on right now? Oh did I mention Its also my birthday? Yep.. not just any birthday but the big 40! Happy birthday to me! lol. I don’t know but this is not only a time for change but also an opportunity for great growth as a person. Sometimes the wisest thing to do at times like these is to simply pause, take a deep breath, and try to objectively look at your life as a whole. Life is in session. Are you present?

Today’s podcast episode was recorded back in March along the way of my journey before I was off the grid.
