Since my wife died two months ago, it’s been terrible. I’ve been struggling just to get through each day. Not only was Ellen my wife, she was my best friend, she was my partner and she was my reason for living.
Without her, I’ve lost meaning, purpose and direction. I wanted to take care of Ellen from the moment we first began dating. Over the years, nearly every choice I made and every action I took revolved around this mission.
And now she is gone. The life we built together is over. My mission now is to build a life without her.
I am doing something I never did before. I am going On The Road.
I am selling my home. I am buying a truck and a small camper. I will be traveling across the US to dry camp in BLM land, National Parks and National Forests.
I will be spending 90% of my time outdoors. I will have limited electricity, spotty internet access and no running water.
I will be living in the desert, in the mountains and in the forests.
I am getting off the beaten path to go deep into nature to try to figure out what I should do next.
I will be chronicling this journey under the Category “On The Road”.
