As Spring is rapidly approaching, I plan on making short trips to my local National Parks and National Recreation Areas to get a feel for how the big trip will go. I will try and post dates before I go, maybe we could have a beer and share stories!
Went on a bike ride today. Had to install the bike rack on the car, so I took a time-lapse of it.
I have the trip planned. I am writing posts to inform you folks how I went about planning the trip. I just listened to this podcast that featured one of my inspirations. It was great to hear of his travels and very inspirational. He talked about how he gets asked all the time about how to start and what people should do to begin. He said it is best to just have the idea and go. You don’t want to spend too much time planning or you will never get out.
I’ve heard it described as “analysis paralysis” It means you spend so much time planning and thinking that you are unable to do the thing it is you were planning to do.
I feel myself falling into this paralysis. I want to do this trip more than you can imagine. As I look at the road maps, trip guides and thing to do’s I want to do it all. I know I can’t do it all so, I spend hours narrowing down the things I really want to do.
May, the month I would like to set off, is rapidly approaching. I have no money, zero views on my website and no sponsors. I fear that I won’t be able to go on this amazing journey and that thought really scares me. I need to spend some time reaching out to a larger audience. My Facebook friends and family haven’t helped spread the word as much as I’d imagined.
Have a great day
We’d like to wish you all a safe and Happy New Year!
Wow, it is 2016! This is the year we plan on hitting the road. So much to plan and do. It will be a busy time and I hope to blog and keep you all up to date. Please share this with your friends and family. We need likes and favorites and clicks to get help from potential sponsors to get this trip down the road.
It is January, where and when are you planning your summer road trip?
Someone sent me this link on our Facebook page.
My trip map looks very similar. Once I figure out how to get an interactive map onto the site, I will publish that info.
I am working hard during this “Off Season” on posts and getting followers and sponsors.
See you next year!
The first video is up on the YouTube site. Just a quick little something.
I spent the night working on a draft for my logo. I’m kinda liking it, a lot!
Well it’s Friday, raise a glass, we made it. Please, have a great weekend. Drink responsibly and we’ll catch you next week for some more posts!
Help me make this site better. I’d like to have a flashy cool logo. To put on t-shirts and stickers to help promote the site and the cause. I have some ideas and sketches. I don’t know how to make them pop or colored!
