This week has been about finding moments for myself amidst the chaos, a challenge that has been made easier by the explosion of life and color down here in Florida. Spring foliage is coming out in earnest now, and to me spring has always been synonymous with renewal and recharging. The extra hour of sunlight [...]
Tomorrow is my birthday. I’m turning 30, which sometimes feels like just another year, and sometimes feels like a very big deal. It’s one of those right of passage ages in our culture: the 20′s are over, time to stop fooling around and get serious about life. Serious about life. Haha, that’s a good one. [...]
Now that I have a real internet account with the University of Florida (after a few false starts – they didn’t have a category for “stay on volunteer” until I showed up), I can down and upload things at will. The WiFi here is so much faster than at the various campgrounds I’ve stayed at [...]
Picture day! With a high in the mid-70′s yesterday it would have been a crime to spend it indoors working on a blog post. I think normally highs in the 70′s isn’t uncommon for Florida this time of year, but like just about everywhere else this has been the coldest winter this area has seen [...]
Implementing big ideas means an upheaval of everything you know. It’s a time of excitement, wonder, and lots of energy, but there is another side too. There’s a lot of uncertainty about how to make it all work, the stress of doing and learning new things, long hours, and fear about what happens if it [...]
The numbers are in! Here’s how my CamperForce earnings stacked up this year. As many of you know, Amazon is one of the best paying RVer friendly jobs out there. But is worth the hard physical work, repetitive nature of the job, and long hours? I’ll give my numbers and you can be the judge. [...]
For the next two and a half months, “home” is the OSBS, a conservation center and research station located about a half hour east of Gainesville, FL. The site sits on over 9,000 acres of land comprised of a variety of native Florida habitats, perhaps most notably the disappearing sandhill habitat of longleaf pines and [...]
This post was written two days ago on 1/6. I’m now all caught up and a more regular posting schedule will resume. Up in my hometown in Wisconsin tonight a Wind Chill Warning is in effect, with values as low as -45 to -55 Fahrenheit expected. Thousands of miles to the south, in Melrose, FL [...]
On the morning of the 28th I’m on the road by noon, having said goodbye to the good folks of Little House Customs. The next few days are driving days with no stops other than overnights. I’m on a mission and nothing will derail me: ringing in 2014 on the shores of the Atlantic with [...]
Colder weather than expected kept me from leaving Kansas yesterday, so I’m leaving this morning now that the sun is starting to come out. That may seem like a bad deal to have to drive on a holiday, but I’m so grateful that I get to decide where to spend Christmas. Warmer weather tonight [...]
