With no particular place to go!
This is why we began living this lifestyle, no set plans and just sort of winging it. It has always worked for us but the main ingredient is faith, something we lack at times but for now we are hanging on and just enjoying the moment.
We left Vegas and made a short drive to Bullhead City, Arizona just across the Colorado River from Laughlin, Nevada where we stayed for a week. The weather there is fantastic, highs in the 70’s and lows in the 50’s, clear skies with wind periodically breezing through. Not the forceful winds we dealt with in Desert Hot Springs but the kind that blows through and makes a quiet statement to let us know it is there. It catches our attention, especially in the middle of the night but we are still able to sleep with our window open. How nice is that?
We took a bike ride over the river to Laughlin so Jerry could purchase me my diamond ring. We usually replace it every year but it has been a lot longer this time and the other one tarnished and I threw it away a few months back so it really needed to be replaced. You see when we were in the stationary lifestyle we agreed for our 10th wedding anniversary we would get me a diamond ring to go with my wedding band but living this lifestyle changed all of those high finance options. We are both good with that but instead we found this little shop in Don Laughlin’s Riverside Casino that sells them for $10 and we have been doing it since our 10th anniversary. The nice thing about it is that they look real, I get hundreds of compliments and I am able to change the style all the time. Now how many other woman can make that same claim? A new diamond almost every year, I am a lucky woman!
We left that area and headed to our next destination in Earp, California at the Emerald Cove RV Resort where the plan was for us to stay for 2 weeks but our “no particular place to go” changed. We had been actively looking for work, not just the online work but other types of work and lo and behold we found what we feel will be a fun couple of months beginning next week.
Working in Borrego Springs, California at a Café with a RVResort next to it for a few months. Jerry will be the cook and I will be filling in whenever needed but we will only be working weekends, we will have Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday off for the most part. There will be a few holiday weeks we will both be working 10 days straight with 12 hour days but all hours over 8 are overtime.
Having those 3 days off we will still be able to visit the area where we wanted to check out for some time now. The Salton Sea, the Fountain of Youth RVResort and we will even be able to visit the Quartzsite RV Show in January for a few days to shop and visit, how perfect is this? A really good find especially when we really were not looking. Best times in life are when we just go with what feels right and not because we have to do it. Life is pretty damn good!
