Just Do It!

Wandering around other people's blogs is always interesting.  One of my favorites is Because We Can.  I started reading them because they were traveling around Europe; not exactly backpacking but pretty close.  Come to find out that they are full-time rv travelers when they are here in the U.S.  Then they traveled to Alaska which is one of my aspirations so I've just kept reading about their travels. The other day they linked to another site where the guy was exhorting people to 'just do it'.

It's a good philosophy.  Too often I get an idea for a great project then somehow it either never gets started or else it gets abandoned part way through.  For example, I want to redesign the way I store things in the back of our truck when we travel.  I've got half a dozen pencil sketches around but haven't completed the design; haven't bought any wood; haven't done anything.  Grrrr!  This is NOT the way to be a happy camper.  We've been talking about traveling in June; now my wife is suggesting maybe we should go earlier in May.  That is when I was going to be building this contraption; so I'm going to have to get with it soon!

So I'm going to just do it.  Tomorrow!  LOL  Have a good one.

Nope, staying in the Lower 48 this year, Zion, Bryce, the Grand Canyon; we want to check out some of our new neighborhood! 2012 is our current plan for Alaska.
