My dream right now, which changes on a yearly basis it seems, is to take a year off to ride as many lines and see as much of the country as possible. No plan other than to enjoy the places I like, and get moving when I’m ready.I just watched a fantastic Ted-Talk on YouTube.
It's really inspiring, I thought why not post it on here - maybe we can help each other out?
True that, man. Except the health issues (yet)....My dream right now, which changes on a yearly basis it seems, is to take a year off to ride as many lines and see as much of the country as possible. No plan other than to enjoy the places I like, and get moving when I’m ready.
A few things are holding me back and they are health related, and family and financial obligations.
I take a few medications for asthma, and the old brain which are pretty expensive without HI. Financially, I have a fairly significant amount of debt from two years of college and a car payment. My mom also can’t afford to live without me helping her out despite my poor income.
I know I could purchase medication overseas for cheap, sell my car, and save as much as possible to cover my debt and help my mother out if I decide to indefinitely hit the road or rails down the line, but I’m not there yet.
So I am settling with little trips for now and saving in hopes that I can square everything away in the near future.
Maybe I am only making excuses out of fear for the unknown and the uncertainty of coming back with everything untied...who knows.
I too want to settle down after travelling more and live off the land!My ultimate dream has always been to eventually settle down and own land where I can build a mini ramp and grow my own food.
My current dream is to hit the road again, but currently have a partner who really needs me here, plus my dog is getting too old and has too many health problems to get back out there.
