True travel is about the "whole" experience not just the ups.. but the stops, goes, waiting and pitfalls life throws at ya. Eager to get south to avoid cold temps north I found more instances of torments. haha Some bring out the sheer mental strength one must reach deeeeeep for.... to deal with such issues. Like being detoured by flooding to get trapped in a flood. Followed by 60mph winds that destroy a brand new awning, but these are the memories as good as the Jolly ole beach days. The best things in life are the simple things like letting my cat Nala out after being stuck inside for days... I always gotta remember the average person spends 10yrs of their life "working", I'm grateful I get to do it with time spent with a new view from my cubicle and furry compadres. Time to go see the fam.
