Adventure In A Truck And Beyond

Adventure In A Truck And Beyond

April 01, 2019

Spring is here and with it comes the chance to venture out and explore the great unknown. It has been said that one must go where they feel most alive. Don't we all want to feel something, do something extraordinary, live life to its fullest potential, especially with those we love?  I came across a quote the other day that I want to incorporate into my life. . "The longer you wait for the future, the shorter it will be." (Loesje.) The time for adventure is now. The time to cease the day, is now. Don't wait until things are "better" because something will always stand in your way. Take the opportunity now to experience what life has to offer. 

One thing I have always wanted to do is explore the outdoors. I love to hike and camp but have not had the opportunity to do so. I should take my own advice and get with it. But that is a story for another day. I wanted to tell you about my college roommate. Her name is Lori. Her and Wyatt, her husband, have been "adventuring" for a few years now and have documented their story. I am envious of the fun that they have together and the places they visit. Together they started View From A Truck Camper. It is an amazing website that tells all about the things that they have learned and experienced traveling this great country of ours.  Following them on Facebook and Instagram is quite a treat. I can live vicariously through their posts. I strongly encourage you to check them out and start your own adventures. 

 There are so many reasons to get out of the rut and start to live. While your adventures may not  be to Mongolia, I found this article to have great reasons why we should get our adventure on. Ten Reasons You Need To Take An Adventure. We need to do it for the children, they are the future. (Yes, I went there.)  Children today are facing a so-called epidemic, the loss of adventure. If you are old like me, you can remember playing outside pretty much all day, everyday. No cell phones, no video games, just pure made up fun and adventure. It was rare to see a "helicopter parent" tagging along with a group of kids. Now days, children are over scheduled and parents are involved in every area of the child's life reducing the child's desire to explore and be independent. Just think how marvelous it would be to get away from all the scheduling and conflicts and head out on the open road to experience nature at its finest. 

This spring and summer, take the opportunity to grab your friends and family and do the impossible...unplug and reconnect. 

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”- Mark Twain

Love Much,

Heather
