Deception Pass, WA

Temporarily Homeless

Noooo, Cuddlebus!! After our long weekend at the amazing Deception Pass State Park, Cuddlebus wouldn’t start. We learned a few things about our AAA service, most notably that they will not tow a converted vehicle (non-standard RV) for whatever reason. Disappointing. We did have it towed eventually for some out-of-pocket $$$. We knew the day would come at some point when our home with all of our belongings would have to be in the shop, just didn’t know it would be today. Had to pack a bag really quick and empty / unplug the fridge. 😜 I miss our bus already, but since I have to travel for work this week the timing is ok.

Pinch Me, Is This Real?

What a dream. We are staying at Deception Pass this weekend, and after next week (I have to travel for work) we are going to come back and spend a couple more weeks here and down the Olympic Coast. This is the view I get while I work! Pinch me, is this real?

First Night

We spent our first night in Washington State at a state park campground near Mount St. Helens. What a perfect place for our first night. It was lush, ferny, drippy, densely forested, with mushrooms growing everywhere. We listened to the sound of fat raindrops splattering on the bus roof all night. It was amazingly peaceful, and so perfectly “Washington”. So this is what freedom feels like! We keep hugging each other, laughing like kids, and throwing each other random fist bumps. 👊

“Homefull”

We are leaving the Rogue Valley! Not homeless, but “homefull”, because we always have our home with us. Here’s to the next nomadic chapter! 🌎

Letting Go

Letting go of things is hard sometimes. Yesterday, I sold my car. I loved that little car, but it was very impractical for my lifestyle and I barely drove it. As a minimalist, I couldn’t justify keeping it and worrying about where to park it, paying insurance, etc just for the occasional need. So, while it is bittersweet, I can let go of this last thing that is tying me down in preparation for our new life in Washington. Focusing on the good things – the bus, my partner in life and everything, becoming a full-time digital nomad, and the freedoms that we have worked so hard to achieve. Life is good!
