Departure Day

All the build projects are done and Vincent is completely loaded.  All the goodbyes have been given and I’m ready to hit the road.

Its going to be a strange summer for me.  A few weeks ago i lost my job of 10 years due to the “reworking of budgets” and for the first time I can travel without an outlying responsibility directing my actions.  I’ve already been joking about it but I get to lean into being jobless, homeless, living out of a van all summer and I couldn’t be more excited about it.

This time around I did make myself an itinerary but until I get my travel legs more I’m not going to share details.  My first stop will be Wind Caves National Park for both a trip underground with a cave tour and a trip to the backcountry for a single night backpacking.

While diesel prices are terrible its been nice seeing Vincent get much better gas mileage than in the spring!
