VanLife: Day 7 or I Need a Vacation
How about it?! I've spent a week in the van and I think I need a vacation. You know how you go on vacation and towards the end you feel like you need another one to rest up from the first one? That's kinda how I feel.
Now, in all honesty, I've worked my craftshow from 6am to 10pm six of my seven days in the van. So I've spent precious little time actually in the van other than to sleep. I'm looking forward to some down time soon though. I've got five more days to go.
The nice thing about van life is that it offers a certain amount of freedom based on finances. The bad thing about vanlife is that it offers a certain amount of freedom based on finances. There's a theme there.
I'm looking forward to booking some weekend craftshows that will then allow me time to explore and play throughout the week. These 10+ day shows in a mall are rough but they afford some inventory building time and climate control.
I'm also itching to get back on my bike and hit the trails. Good things come to those who wait.
I did manage to break away for a bit and visit Aggieville, a 2 block area off campus that has become somewhat of a college hangout. It was interesting but it has nothing on the Promised Land of Fayetteville and our Dickson Street.
