Thanksgiving Day | Palm Beach Motorcoach Resort, FL

ODOMETER: 80,306 | MILES TRAVELED: 2,361

 

by Grant

We’re just over 4 weeks into this grand adventure (or experiment) and we’ve experienced massive highs and some scary lows. But the lows have been much less impactful than the wonderful opportunities to see this amazing country, to break free of the stifling circumstances we’re all embroiled in, and bring the spirit of adventure back into our lives. 

There are mixed reviews from all of us on this tiny house on wheels lifestyle, but the consensus seems to be that we made a great decision to break out and hit the road and that whatever sacrifices we make space wise are well worth it. 

Our final destination a week ago was Alaska, but now Hawaii has blossomed as we brainstorm where we’re headed next. The thought is to head to Hawaii after we get back from Alaska. Maybe even get a boat and sail to Hawaii from the West Coast!? It will be interesting to review where we end up when we get to next Thanksgiving.
