    Default Destined For Lateness

    The time has finally come!

    Today me and the lady put in our notices at work and have started the countdown for our grand departure from Portland, OR.

    The general plan is to spend the next 9-12 months wandering around National Parks, Mexico, and anywhere else that seems interesting. We will be leaving at the end of the month, taking everything to put into storage at a friends and then living out of the truck full time.

    Super excited for what is to come!

    Instagram and here will be my primary ways of dumping photos and travel stories so stay tuned!

    Noah, nice Insta. Quite grammy. Diggin it. I fired off a super nosey question for you over there.

    It looks like you've been traveling for quite some time. Were you and the lady working full time gigs and just doing weekend travel prior to quitting?

    @Grub 1632 Thanks! We sure are excited to hit the road full time!

    @PHeller, appreciate the compliment! We have been professional weekenders for a while, basically getting out every chance we can while working 50+ hour week jobs that were quite demanding. We have put about 20k miles on the rig in the last 18 months and slept under the stars at least 100 nights. The pacific northwest makes it really hard to be a couch potato!

    I retired in 2004 and full timed for 8.5 years. Alaska, Baja and spring to fall out west. Winters usually in Florida. Really enjoyed the life but finally quit when I got tired of poor repair service while traveling. Stopped and settled in Western Colorado where I now have a shop where I can do most of my own work.

    My advice go slow, relax and enjoy the scenery. I traveled solo except for my dog. Traveling with a companion you should do things solo once in a while. Really hope your trip is fun and lasts. Best of luck.
