Turning Sunday drives into everyday drives
I used to have every Sunday off from work and used to take random drives to wherever. When I say wherever it means locally around the Lowcountry area (Charleston is known to be part of the Lowcountry which means we are a low laying area below sea level which includes many areas in Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester counties, which equals to frequent flooding). I would just get in the car and drive randomly either north, south, east, or west, and decide where I was going to turn mostly when we arrived at that turn. A couple of times I did venture to Savannah, Georgetown, Myrtle Beach, Pawley's Island, Walterboro, Yemassee, and Beaufort to name a few. I enjoyed the freedom of just going where I wanted to go. Sometimes we would stumble upon a flea market or a craft fair and one time we found a water festival. It is great to just be in a new place to see new buildings with different architecture and a new vibe that it heightens my senses as I look around and take it all in. I want to experience this feeling all the time while traveling around and seeing new small towns with new things for me to see and enjoy. I want to be able to feel like another Sunday drive without the worry of trying to figure out what time to head home and be prepared for an upcoming workday. Oh yes, I am ready to make everyday a Sunday drive and open the windows and feel the wind racing by and the feeling of being free from the everyday ruckus and stress of the chaotic mess that I call life right now. I am in such anxious anticipation of leaving that I ask myself, can I really wait 10 months to leave? Who made that date anyways? Can I really wait to take my permanent Sunday drive? Hmmmm... I'm really not sure. Is it going to be beneficial to wait that long to leave on this journey? Why not in 5 months? 4 months? I am off to contemplate the leave date. Wish me luck...but until then, I am watching time, its timer ticking. https://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?iso=20180918T12&p0=1082&msg=GIMA-TA+GO+BYE+BYE&ud=1&font=cursive#
Most towns thrive on that what brings more people, money, fame, and growth and little ole Titusville is no exception to the normal wants of a semi-small town. The claim to fame here is great views of the launches from across the Indian River, aka ICW. (All my own opinion of course) There are references to space all over the area and not just in Titusville, all around the area, and in Orlando, there are random references to the nearby claim to famers. Many people line the river whenever there is a launch and even more so bring out the food trucks when it is a momentous one, like a shuttle or a rocket carrying humans. There are 3 beaches which are all about 30 minutes or so from Titusville and the closest is Playlinda beach, located along the Canaveral National Seashore, meaning National, meaning government-owned. The Merritt Island National Wildlife Preserve runs along the whole barrier island which does mean that it will never be developed, hopefully. Back to the beaches first, Pla
My anxious attitude is starting to shine and radiate out of me like any other glorious feeling of should've already happened. Did ya get that? Sooooo, lived in a house then I had a 31' motorhome, sold it, and bought a van. It is almost ready to be on a long trip road, but am I?! Again I am getting the feeling of wanderlust. Ready to be on the open road. Ready to be outta here and onto new. Orrrr am I ready once again to change my mind and path again? Maybe so and once again I am okay with whatever just as long as I'm happy. I may just keep my van and use it later on down the road after coming back from a sailing trip I also have always yearned for since I saw my first boat. Is it finally the universe giving me what I want and what I asked for? I have to believe fully that is the case and let my destiny and wanting to enjoy the rest of my life take over with only the want to be happy. I have said over and over again how much I love being outdoors in the bright sun or
Today I was talking to a couple of co-workers and we were discussing doing acid, mushrooms, ecstasy, molly, and so on. Well, both of the ladies I was speaking with were both very young. One was 18, the other 21. I was shocked that there was so much of all that still around and so plentiful. I seriously didn't think that acid was still being done as much as it is. I also didn't think that these ladies have done all that they have. But I guess that is me just judging too. I have met so many people over the years and it always seems that when I am talking to someone that a whole life story will come out. I enjoy talking to strangers and they seem to want to be friends, so why not? I really do wish I had a memory where I could remember every conversation I have had with all the people I've met ...ever. I embrace and cherish(at the time, obviously) the stories that I am told. I am going to try and document bits and pieces of stories or at least a tidbit of info of
