Our itchy feet are soon to be rewarded as our compass once again heads southward. The last seven months is the longest we’ve stayed in any one spot for the last four years and we are feeling it! Luckily, having negotiated a 59-day leave of absence each winter allows us to stay in touch with the wanderlust that is core to our true selves.
Tomorrow we say Adios to camp and work our way through California. This particular drive is never something we relish and there is temptation to just “get through it” but instead my focus has been on finding new routes and new stops, a challenge exasperated with the winter weather in effect. This time around we’ll see some of the old, there are only so many routes, but are also excited to check out some new roads, new campgrounds, and new Harvest Host spots.
In our sphere, almost whatever the question, the answer is Mexico. With our time with Aspen ever shorter we are more anxious than ever to hit the sun and sand of Baja and the prospect of seeing dear friends, even if for a shorter length of time this go-round, lights our spirit.
Our Baja Amigos caravan this year will find us welcoming new faces and enthusiastically introducing our group to all of the joys of the Baja peninsula. With four rigs and eight guests heading south, we’ll have a somewhat smaller gang in tow. Two more rigs and four more guests join us for our return trip to ensure plenty of stories and laughter in one of our favorite spots on the planet.
As our true spirit shines through when we are out there living large look for more updates from the road these next two months. Goodbye cold, wet Oregon and hello once again to the fun side of the border!
