Never Give Up, Never Surrender

โ€œThere is no shortage of good days. It is good lives that are hard to come by.”

There wasn’t much worth noting about today. I stayed in, did a little cooking and housework, and caught up on some computer related things that earned me a little money.

But I was also parked in the dead of winter on a gorgeous beach with the weather sunny and warm enough to go out in just a light skirt and tee-shirt and walk in the surf without freezing my toes.

Moreover, my battery bank was working as I’d hope it would, so I was able to spend a normal day following my usual routine and I really didn’t feel like I was boondocking beyond watching my water conservation.

It all sounds so mundane, but this is what I’ve always imagined RVing in winter should be like. This has been my grail, the vision I’ve worked so hard for in the last four and a half years. I’ve had some amazing days on the road, yes, but none that were more perfect than this because all the pieces have finally come together.

I’m going to go out on a limb and declare today to have been the best day of my life.
