So much in my life is unknown right now. In fact, I don’t even have a home and for a few hours yesterday, I didn’t have a car either! It doesn’t worry me, but I have my family to thank for that. I still haven’t really officially written about my move from Tennessee to Florida because the original plan was to have this amazing debut of a blog post announcing the purchase of a new camper van and to share the excitement that comes along with an adventurous tour around Florida, and throughout the US.
But like I said, the unknown. What I thought I knew about how 2021 would wrap up is not even really possible anymore. Crazy how things change! Earlier I praised my family and here’s why: Since the RV thing sort of went up in smoke (figuratively speaking), I have relied on my sisters, parents, brother-in-law, and my nieces to take me in for an unknown amount of time. Not only have they done that, but they are running right alongside as I sort out what new plans are forming for 2021 and 2022. I am a blessed brother, son, and uncle, that’s for sure!
Without an RV, you’d think maybe my travel plans are changing. Well, no. That brings us back to the title of this post – Have you figured out yet what it is you want?
Truthfully, what I want has almost literally changed with each new day. What was once a sure plan with a class B camper van has turned into an adventure all by itself: replacing the RV with a truck and a travel trailer. But which truck? Which trailer? Are there any in this city? How about east or west of here? As the search continues, I’ve been reminded of one of my all-time favorite songs. It’s by Dawes and, in fact, this post is titled from that song. It’s called “A Little Big of Everything,” which kind of sums up my current state of mind.
I find a trailer that has a slide-out but no dinette. Or it has a couch but no TV. Great colors on the outside but the inside is hideous. So it does seem as though I want a little bit of everything.
The dramatic adventure continues today!
Thanks for stopping by…
