serious vagabond

getting out of here has become top priority. at least it's become more urgent since my vacation. i want to be somewhere warm sometime soon to settle in for the winter. a woman came into my work tonight and talked a big story about the virgin islands. i've come to learn there are no quarantines for animals and it's relatively easy to move there on a whim. when i went to hawaii last year, i was disheartened to learn of its stringent animal quarantine policies and thought i couldn't do the island life with a cat, but now i'm pleased to learn, it isn't that way everywhere. i wonder if i could take my van there? i'm still inquiring.
work sucks since i've been back, i haven't even made 100 bucks a night which is horrible. i'm losing interest in sticking it out. i can make this kind of lousy money anywhere. i will give it a few more weeks, but i have to figure something out soon.
today i took everything out of my storage shed and reorganized. this week i'll have plenty to do sending things away and selling/giving items i no longer need. i'm getting very serious about paring down to the essentials. i have no time for extraneous things, i'm a serious vagabond.
i feel a new page has been opened and i'm ready for it.

Been thinking about heading abroad myself. Could be an easier, nicer, better life. Not to mention how cheap it could be.

Wow, I just encountered your post, and I applaud you for this. This is such a fun, scary and exciting thing to do. I have been downshifting and minimizing myself, though not to that extent. I will definitely join you to see your progress. Check out my blog on living an urban minimalist life if you need some minimalism/green/simple living tips, though I you are probably way more advanced than me!

Sounds like we're on the same page. I'm headed out to Oregon on Saturday.

This is exactly what we did. At first we thought we needed this and that but it turns out its just a hassle to keep a bunch of stuff. Now we are down to 2 tupperware totes and thats about it....
Peace and Love through your journeys within and without...
