Day 1004 "Dont be afraid to travel the journey alone"
February 14, 2016
On the topic of VDAY, it is a interesting day for me. When I left to live among strangers one legitimate concern was, will I have close meaningful relationships? (As in GF), Not making it a priority the fact is its not so easy. April 20th will be 3yrs on the road, hardly calling Santa Cruz home base considering I've spent about 5% of the time there. Casual acquaintances made on the road are obviously not as measurable to those friends back home who you share deeper experiences. Some might argue it takes time to "trust" anyone... although I couldn't have continued traveling without some I didn't know longer then a couple hrs. Most interactions become memorable experiences and I attempt to follow up via online, unfortunately doesnt work if it was kinda on the romantic side. Back to my #escapethecode idea of society programming us from kids thru college to "Find the one, get married, have kids, dog, the tree house in the back yard" That is definitely an investment just like the job for retirement. For some it might turn out perfect.. what if it doesn't for the some of us? Maybe I just haven't found the "one"? Not mentioning names (because Its hard to explain without sounding like a sailor), but I meet girls all the time off and on IG. One of the saving factors that allows an exciting experience for the most part is that "time" is limited... it accelerates the relationship wether it's bonding or romantically. No time waisted with speechless on cell phones or redundant small talk watching Netflix. I just feel the connection is more genuine if "time" isn't taken for granted. That said I do not say it is anything but MY approach to finding a way to extend a quality romance beyond a week or weekend while traveling fulltime #rvlife. Sidenote for followers: Before the its always an adventure after adventure or nothing but a vacation delusion, us fulltime RVers have problems also. Not the typical day 2 day ones but like having a steady GF to take out for Vday? haha Im open to suggestions until I figure it out, but I hope anyone who comes across these thoughts enjoys their evening. :)
