And so the journey begins!!
This is the moment that we have been waiting for! To attract the van of our dreams. That fits our needs. And gives us the freedom to travel where ever we desire.
On July 4th, our dream van came into our reality. The transaction was smooth. The price was right. And she drives like a champ. We call her Matilda. Tilly for short. She is a beauty!
For now, we decided to start the journey by exploring some of Florida forests and be totally off the grid. Boy. Did we learn a great big lesson. To sum it all up, things are nothing as they use to be. Times certainly have changed. We were under the impression that the forest would be mostly deserted (of people) with dense trees and a variety of plant life. A vast wilderness full of wild animals, beautiful lakes, rivers and waterfalls.
Well, there is a wide variety of plant life, but it is definitely not deserted. And those lakes, rivers and even natural springs, are all controlled and manipulated from the public in some sort of way. There are people that come out to fish, to hunt and to just bring their chaotic, destructive energies. They consider the forest to be “game land”; a killing playground. What a tragedy the human race is apart of.
As a lesson, we have found that the forest, especially those located in the east coast, though they are amazingly beautyfull, are not a long term space for us. With this newfound information, we begin to map out (literally) a new plan. What we found… you will have to stay tuned to Powered With Nature for those details! But. I promise, we wont disappoint!
The amazing thing about a journey is finding your way. One way might not work out for you so you have to figure out something else. To me, this is both exciting and nerve wracking. It is important to have a partner who can help balance things out. If you are lucky enough to have someone in your life that is of a value to you, it all will work out in the end.
So the journey continues. We will be putting the forest into our rearview window and looking forward to new lands. To a new adventure.
See you when we get there!
