Before the holidays I left you as I was straddled with one foot remaining in full time mode and the other with roots planted in Spokane.
In full time mode I am ever poised, watching the weather for a break that allows me some soul refilling outdoor time. But alas, it is winter here and outdoor time for me at least is fleeting. Icy roads have limited outdoor excursions but sunny sky's beckon me with the promise of the days to come. Outdoor walks have become infrequent and the high calorie treats of the holiday have come home to roost. I detest the idea of living my life on hold until I am able to fit in some travel time which leads to unsettled feelings. But at the same time I feel unable (unwilling?) to build a stationary life.
How long can I bed down in the family room without defined space to call home. At these moments I have found myself perusing the want adds looking a small little houses that I could use as a home base during the winter months and a launch pad during the fair weather non-school months. Yet, I do NOT want to be tied financially and problematically to a home that I will eventually need to divest of in order to travel. (I just did that and it was hard!)
Wander lust prevails and I find myself thinking about how far away I can go over Spring Break....
I hate the idea of putting my desires out to the universe as it almost dares fate to mess with my ideas. but I'm thinking Utah sounds like a great place to get away to....
Utah was one of my original desired destinations. I believe I could loose myself in Utah for quite some time. I hate whirlwind travel so I am more likely to set up the trailer in one or two basecamps and explore around those areas.
While two weeks is not long enough, it just might tide me over until warmer weather. I'm looking forward to March when the trailer will come out of storage and I can get it ready for road travel.
Now to get through a couple of ugly months until the weather begins to turn. I guess that is the best time for dreaming and ordering travel maps and materials. I am definetely wanting to spend a couple of days at Antelope Island and time around Moab.
