We’re off to see the Wizard…

August 7, 2010

That’s what I feel like on this eve of becoming a nomad… sans yellow brick road and singing munchkins of course.

I jump into the mobile life of a gypsy beginning tomorrow morning when I’ll pull up stakes, turn in my keys to this comfortable and stationary life, and head north into the Land of Anything Could Happen and Everything is Possible.  It still doesn’t seem real, this new life I’ve chosen, but I have a feeling, by this time tomorrow night, it will be very real in a loud and clear sort of way.

Loud and clear reality will find me about 320 miles north of here in Tok, AK, not too far from the Canadian Border, which I’ll be crossing on Monday.  Once in Canada, cell service is too expensive to use and internet service will be intermittent, but I’ll do my best to stay in touch as I move through the Yukon Territory, British Columbia, and Alberta before entering Montana and the lower 48 in about a week and a half or so.

That’s it for now.  There is still lots to do before Misty, Mosely, and I step out on the Road.

    Safe journeys, Margie. Looking like a nice day to start, the sun is finally coming out to bid you a fond farewell. I’ll miss you but will follow your logs.

    If you go through the Okanoggan Valley in Canada be sure and get some delicious fruit. It is the best in the whole world, good apples, grapes yummmy…..
