OK - I'm having some abivalence about starting this journal and should be wary about beginning another project until I'm through with school. Especially since I'm not traveling yet - which makes the title of this blog completely misleading.
But I realize that there are other bloggers out there no doubt just as busy as I who also aren't traveling yet but are in the planning stages. They have inspired me and I have a feeling they may also be instrumental in keeping me motivated. So .... I want to be part of this community.
My plan: to purchase a gently-used Class B+ or small C motorhome in order to fill all the holes in my travel resume. For example, I've never been to the Pacific Northwest and after passing the age of 50 a few years ago, this just eats away at me. Daily.
While growing up, my family took road trips for vacation (in cars like this) and those are among my best memories of childhood. Maybe that's why I have always loved to roam. I love my home, job, husband, and life very much and the only thing I would change is to travel more. The sands in the hourglass are running out and there is much left to see.
Between family, home, and work obligations, I don't yet know how I'm going to pull this off - exactly - but I'm confident that I'll figure it out soon enough.
(Actually, it's the same house)

Thanks to all of you out there who inspire (mainly envy in) the rest of us!
