What we have here is where our family is and where it's headed. That along with future family business ventures. As we walk in faith, family and love. You never know where God will place you, but it's sure to be a Blessed place.
Well it’s the end of our last day at Lakeshore Fittings. I personally have mixed feelings. I’m joyest for the new adventures and the next steps in life. And I’m sad due to leaving behind a place that has let me grow my skills. I know that I speak for both my wife and myself in saying “Thank you Lakeshore, for all you have done for us”. We will miss it there.
But like all things in life you sometimes need change. And the changes ahead are simply unexplainable for me. 15 plus years of dreaming and imagining are being placed into play. We have done it. We are full time RVers. We have left the slavery of our “sticks and bricks” home behind. And moved on to the freedom of the open road. First the very first time in our adult lives we are taking a direction that we want. One that several think is crazy, foolish and borderline insane.
But I ask “who really is the crazy one? The one that follows their dreams and goals or the one that simply is to scared to try?” See we all tell our kids they can do anything they want when they grow up. But what we’re really saying is “You can get a JOB doing whatever you want to pay bills. And if your really good someday when you’re old and worn out you MIGHT get a few years bill free.” For what and why is this ever seen as correct? We’re done with that model and are breaking the mold of the status quo if you will.
Jesus told us “Go forth and spread the good news”, not Work hard and pay your bills. I for one want a life that is very much a vacation not one that requires a vacation. Memories are what I’ll be filling my life with, not stuff.
Are we crazy? Maybe a bit. But then again who really isn’t a little crazy at heart. So for all of you that have not yet built up the confidence to throw caution to the wind and jump. You all can live and learn through us here on this Blog and on YouTube at our Vlog. We will miss all we’re leaving behind.
In 31 hours from now we will be throwing away these shoes we have been wearing for about a year, for my husband even longer.
The shoes that we wear at a steppingstone job that is taking us to a dream we have been waiting for a Long time coming. That dream will become a reality in 31 hours.
I know what some of you are thinking , ” there just shoes, what’s the big deal!?”
Let me ask you readers, have you ever made a decision that you were so determined to make there was no failure option. You know the – how do I make this happen, no matter what it cost, no matter how much I have to change, or where I have to go … it IS going to happen. If you ever felt that kind of determination than you know what I am talking about.
The shoes we wear are not just any shoes, these mean something. We took a billion steps to make this dream a reality. Now we are getting rid of past shoes and putting on new shoes. With a new dream in our hearts with the same determination to take billion steps in the direction we want to go.
So when these shoes go away we know what it will take to make dreams happen, because we walked in those shoes.
Well it’s been a few busy days. Brake controller issues, need to install a water pump on the motorhome’s motor tomorrow and well that’s it. And the best news of all, My great and talented wife is editing our first YouTube video/intro. So stay tuned we’ll have our first Vlog up in a few days.
Well fokes, we did it before launch day. We landed our first Workamper job. We’ll be doing Host and Maintenance duty’s at Chapman Campground in north-central Colorado till mid September. We got pay and a full hook-up site on a awesome trout stream. Pics to come as soon as we get there July 7th. We are so blessed and thankful. In case you didn’t know what a “Workamper” is you can follow the link. No we are not paid by them it’s simply for your information. Same with the campground.
As I sit here typing we are getting ready for our last weekend here. We’ll have our first Vlogg post coming this weekend as well. Just a simple introduction to us and what lays ahead. We will be headed north out of Muskegon, Michigan on June 29th at around 6:15am. Yes I have it dialed in that well on leave date. This has been a long time coming. A post in the next few days will be coming with more info on the whys, and the whens this all became a dream into a plan.
This weekend will be a bit of a few things. Finish up organizing, setting up brake controller (we have a trailer for our Jeep more on that later), clean up the area we’ve been parked, set-up mail forwarding, and we’re looking to more the Blogg to a stand alone host for more control and easier adding of better “widgets” and our E-store. We also plan to add for a “Donation” button because well there is cost involved in keep you all in our loop of life.
I really had not planned a blogg post today, but after locking in our Workamp we were super thrilled and just had to share. Also starting after June 30th, you all will start getting pictures with each post too. Until next time.
Good morning all. Seems my head is so full that I’m not completely sure what topic I want to start with. As I type this it is hard to get my mind around that fact we are only 21 days from full blow launch day. 21 days till a dream that started back when I was a little boy started to grow. How many of you can say you have lived your dreams? I know until we started down the road of Full Time RVing I had not.
Over the next few weeks we are working to establish a few new income lines, re-brand our Vinyl sticker company and just simply breath. We also are planning that this post right here will be our first of the weekly updates. Michelle is goaling at also getting videos up as well. So that will be coming as well.
See we are new to all of this. But if one thing rings true, ALOT of people both want to see how we do what we do. And see how they might some day do it as well. I’ve said it before, we’re not rich, we don’t have tons of money. We simple have each other and a plan. And having God’s blessing helps too.
I do think that along with the normal weekly updates, I’ll have some how-to, and such. There will be more coming this weekend as we’re getting alot of our online stuff all together. So for now.
