The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Day 61

This is my last day at this location.  My 14 days are up and I must move on to a new camp.  Rules.  I will take this opportunity to drive north 35 miles to Parker, Arizona and pick up some items.  I am not in desperate need of anything except probably just the need for the drive itself.  This staying in one spot for 2 weeks or longer is a real test of my patience.   I love driving and want to get out on the road.  I am a vagabond.

Its always a good practice to look up the definition of words that you take for granted you know.

vagabond (noun)  a person, usually without a permanent home, who wanders from place to place; nomad.  (yeah, okay) an idle wanderer without a permanent home or visible means of support; tramp; vagrant. (hey, hold on there)  a carefree, worthless, or irresponsible person; rogue (gee, maybe I better rethink what I call myself)


  1. I don't think the name vagabond suits you, I think you are more like an adventurer. A vagabond has a bit negative sound, someone who is a tramp wandering along the roads.

  2. Think you might want to call yourself something else like the wandering blogger

  3. Just enjoy yourself John... whatever you are
