Check out this lifestyle

I love to talk to cyclists

Whenever I see a cyclist stopped in my campground I always take the opportunity to talk with them.  They have a million stories to tell and are usually very open about sharing them with you.  A few days ago I saw Don resting at the entrance to the campground.  I naturally went up to him and asked if he needed any water.  He had plenty, but was willing to pose for a photo and share with me where he had been and where he was going.

What a lifestyle change!

Originally Don lived in San Diego, CA but this is where the adventure begins.  He sold his home and from the profits he decided to hit the road.  This is where his lifestyle varies from my.  I drive a 27 ft. RV with 6 tires down the road.  Don has 2 wheels and a small tent for his abode.  What a difference!

Many people think I am crazy living the lifestyle I live.  I think Don is crazy for the lifestyle he lives.  But everyone has their own lifestyle that they enjoy.  Whatever makes that person happy is all that counts.

Off to Europe

Well, after selling his home he went to Europe for 1 1/2 years, where he biked all over Europe.  He mentioned that it was difficult in some parts due to the language barrier.  Poland was one place he found to be very friendly.

All down the west coast

On his return from Europe he cycled all the way from Vancouver, BC to La Paz, MX.  What a trip that must have been!  Right now he has been on the road 3 months and has been to Washington, Montana, Yellowstone, Wyoming, Idaho and was on his way to Bend, OR.  What a magnificent journey!

Here is a pic of Don living his lifestyle.

Whether you abode is a stick house, an RV or a bike with tent as long as you love your lifestyle that is all that matters.  As different as they are both, Don and I love our own lifestyles.

  1. If I would have gone to Europe for 1 1/2yrs. I would have had to cycle as well. They have forbiddingly high fuel prices over there. And it seems we are going the same way faster than we imagine.
    Good Story, Jim!

  2. You are so right. Many people think we are crazy for living in an RV.but we have all the comforts of home. As romantic as it sounds to bicycle around the world, that’s a bit too primitive for us. To each his own!
