I'm expecting the next 31 days to be a bit of a roller coaster ride. I will be going through exhileration at the thought of getting on the road, and a big case of the nerves of ....you guessed it, getting on the road.
I have experienced this before, about 10 years ago when l took a trip in my car around the USA. I was so excited about going, and then about a week before l was to leave l remember getting a big case fo the nerves. I even called a friend of mine who is was a world traveller to much more exotic places for longer periods of time (Asia, South America both for a year at a time) with just a backpack.
She assured me that the nerves are normal. That knowledge in itself was very comforting and helped me relax. It ended up being a good trip, and a small trial run for this adventure/lifestyle. I slept in reststops and Walmart parking lots along the way as well as Hostels. I will enjoy the experience of travelling with my home much more, l am sure.
It might be a bit of a challenge getting all packed and organized (with small van modifications done) before the end of March, so l have allowed myself a week in April after my Palm Desert trip to apply myslef to wrapping up my current life.
