living in my element


This story started when I quit my job, sold my house, put 10,000 lbs of stuff in storage. I took off with my dog, to camp across America.  I had no commitments, I could go anywhere, do anything.  But I had to figure out what that may be, during the trip and after. 

I zigged and zagged for 15,000 miles, mostly with the southern half of the States.  I tent camped with Patches, living out of my Element from April through August, 2008.    This trip was all about deciding what my ideal life should be.  Since I was given a clean slate, I wanted to make the best choices for me, well thought out, for all the right reasons, for my interests.  It was like I was a college grad, fresh and ready to go, with 20 years experience and a little security to get me started. 

The whole experience has been perfect.  I found a great place for my new life in Mississippi.  Thanks for the visit!

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
