We Arrived in Myrtle Beach
What a ride! We have about $100 left in our funds so we will get creative of things to do in the area while we relax for 14 days before we head to our next work assignment. The weather will not be cooperating for the first few days here…rain is forecasted and that is what we woke up to and it continues to soak, unfortunately inside as well. We need a few days to unplug from the travels so we will take this time to relax and clean up the rig but as soon as the weather clears we will take a bike ride and explore.
This trip we were flying by the seat of our pants on a wing and a prayer, not too many people could travel that way or live the lifestyle this way but for us the alternative is just not an option. We do not want to stop traveling, we just want to be able to be one of those couples who land that perfect job that we enjoy and makes us a bundle of money. We see it and hear about it all the time but for us it just hasn’t found its way to us and that is not because we have not been looking, interviewing and hounded certain companies but they seem to have a different type of person in mind and we do not fit their criteria, so we continue to struggle but we always laugh and smile through it all.
We are so blessed with so many other great things in our lives that we find it hard to complain about lacking in the financial areas of our lives.
We are so blessed with having found each other and that we enjoy the same things, this lifestyle could not work if we did not work well together and that we are so grateful for all the time. We hardly ever argue and when we disagree we both know that we need to give and compromise so to meet somewhere in the middle and we usually do quite quickly. We don’t take turns compromising but it ends up being an equal give and take for us. The most important thing about our relationship is that we make each other laugh, especially during the lean times. We love each other and we love our life…it is that simple!
We are so blessed that we found our Maggie, aka our motorhome for those of you that are not familiar with the name we call her. She is one tough cookie. She crosses country with so much strength on some of those wickedly rough roads that most RV’s would fall apart, but she rides through without any issues. She has been having some major issues with water damage to her exterior and there is lots of dry rot and we can actually see her expanding in many places but she stays strong and keeps us safe. These all day soakings we have been having since landing in Myrtle Beach is not helping with this but we hope she will continue to hold on and not blow out. We continue to patch her everywhere since there is absolutely no way we could afford to buy a new home. That is something we continue to struggle with but we choose to make do with what we have and to be grateful for it all.
We are so blessed when it comes to our health. Oh sure, there are times when our aches and pains are excruciating but we work through it and we get better without doctors or drugs, that is except for Advil and vitamins. We are healthy, happy and so much in love, what more could we ask for? Well…we could think of a few things but we are eternally grateful for all we do have…so much more than many people out there in this world so no whining or complaining from us.
We hope you all have safe travels and find the good in all you have today and every day!
