Well, one more work week gone and one to go and my mom doesn’t have to leave me.
Ted had part of Monday off, I had to work(regular salary + time and a half), I put in to get the time off if we weren’t busy and was able to leave by 9am. I called Ted to find out where he was and caught him before he left town and met for a late breakfast. The rest of the time before he had to leave in installed some new headlamps and fog lamps on my truck that he gave me for Christmas. He had to leave by one, to get back to SF by 3pm to work.
It was back to work on Tuesday and for as slow as it was on Monday, it was extremely busy and it didn’t stop, Wednesday and Thursday were just as busy. I sure won’t miss this job. It is a good job, but I ‘m ready to get on with the next change in my life, on to a better lifestyle and slower pace.
This is my motivator at work.
The time is here to worry or just give it up. I will probably go with the latter, it doesn’t do any good to worry. It will be whatever it will be. I am still working on what I will do. So far the plan is to stay where I am until the end of January and take that time to pull everything together and then head South.
My plan is to take my time and take CA99 South to Bakersfield and then East to CA395 and South to I10. I plan on stopping in Desert Hot Springs and then in Quartzite before going onto Phoenix where two of my daughters live. I will be there for a while before continuing on to Texas for my first Workamping gig on April 1st. I am hoping to do this as cheaply as possible and will open for any suggestions. Since this is the first time that I will be doing this by myself, I think that I will do approximately 200 miles a day. I would rather not have to unhook and pay for a CG site. I have been keeping track on how long I have before I have to dump my tanks, one week for grey, several weeks for black. I will carry only enough water for basic needs. I have access to my bed and bathroom and the refrigerator with all the slides pulled in. It would be nice to have several options each day so that I can stop when I am too tired to go on. It would be nice too if there is somewhere that I can take Angel for a walk,
A couple more ducks are in place after today. I will be using Escapees as my mail forwarder, so had to get the form notarized mailed today. We’re back at home and it’s time for bed.
I hope that you all have a wonderful and safe weekend.
