We’ve taken a little break from the blog, but we’re still here. Winter Park for the ski season – exactly the same place we were at this time last year.
The only recent bus adventures have been to the store and back. I don’t think we’ve bought a tank of gas since November. The free town shuttle has been our main ride. Bode is on ski team two days a week and we’re all trying to get out on the mountain as much as we can. I’ve been busy with two different work projects and might be adding a third. I can work in my pajamas, so I shouldn’t complain – but I still do. Angela is on top of the home-schooling (can’t call it road-schooling for now, I guess) and trying to avoid going stir-crazy. Our place is pretty small, but still quite a bit bigger than the bus. Indoor plumbing has been nice.
So, we’re going to take it easy for the next few months and ‘get stuff done’ before heading out somewhere in the spring. The old ‘one year trip’ has essentially become our indefinite lifestyle and we’re feeling pretty comfortable slowing things down and thinking about the long game. Everything we’re ever discussed is still on the table, but now we’re adding more options. Wandering around Quebec and trying to re-learn high-school French could be interesting. We could drive to Newfoundland. Overlanders never seem to go that way – it’s the opposite of the Alaska trek. Europe and Africa continue to be big projects on the list. Hiking the John Muir trail has been mentioned. I even caught myself shopping Craigslist for sailboats in Florida. I wanna go see that uninhabited island with the swimming pigs.
Oh well, we’ll figure it out.
