There is no simple explanation for our choice of moving onto Harry. Or to set up camp on undisclosed locations. No explanation needed! Living outdoors is something we both want. This is not new to us, even though there is limited experience evolving being boat-owners. We are nature men and travelers by heart and the thought of slow-travel, with the chance of not having to actually carry our luggage, is what we are aiming for. Like a phlegmatic snail over troubled water.. 🙂 The ultimate goal is to find the way to continue our journey before winter once again rain upon us.
The weather is no longer a problem. We have our dry home in the boat! On board we can find all the tools needed, I guess we could build a small house if we wanted to. All the clothes, the food, the cat and the heat. We have two tents, sleeping bags and not to forget each other. Our only real concern was this:
What about the cash?!
We could probably get around the whole money-problem. And without boring you with our economical details, there shouldn’t be any problems – If our calculations are correct. But – in order for us to evolve and grow and let’s say invest in our future instead of paying bills – we’ve had to be creative with ideas on how to make our money. We also wanted replacements for the commodities we otherwise would waste money on.
In a perfect world, we wouldn’t have to consider this aspect of economics. Nor is it a goal of ours to become wealthy, if so; Just for the convenience of having someone take care of the manual-starting trouble we seem to have with Harry. The world is however not perfect. Fair enough, let’s deal with it. Best bet would be to follow this blog. You don’t need to ask about exactly how all these things are going to happen. We don’t know yet.
Lead the way
Even though we both find the activity of planning amusing, there is no real reason for spending hours of planning out our journey. We have tried to plan the content before without much luck. When traveling slow – like we want to (and are used to from our days with heavy backpacks in 26-degree shade) the plan quickly change. Whenever navigating uncharted terrain we prefer to take it slow and let the road, now also water, lead the way. What we however do spend time focusing on; our freedom, creativity and the amazing opportunity this journey represent. We want ourselves to play around with new and exciting ideas. In short: There is no master-plan.
Yes, we are making our own luck. We also want to learn how to get a closer relationship with nature, how to live more responsible considering waste and ecological footprint. We know we are dreamers. We also know that doing nothing about our dreams is not an option.
