Everyone loves the idea of travel. Invision yourself on that sandy beach with palm trees and your ten servants giving you everything your heart’s desire, what a dream.
When I think about the first time I thought about travel it was at a dr office while in the waiting room. With a stack of magazines in front of me, seeing that first travel magazine and thinking about how I needed to be there. I could see myself there.
I also remember in school many people would leave for vacation, But it never occurred to me where these people were going. I was always home and didn’t experience a vacation as others did. During the summer months, I remember going camping for short periods with my family but never anything over the top or anything anyone I knew would consider a vacation.
Whenever I think about vacation I think about that magazine full of blue ocean and white sand, and perfect palm trees and that warm breeze hitting your face. All this in an escape to avoid being at work and get out of your head and relax and not have to do anything.
In my early twenties, I became a transport truck driver. Driving the long haul, I started working for SGT, or as some would call it
During my trucking career, I began to travel all over north A
When heading south toward Florida there is this steep hill that lasts for miles. One of those hills that have safety exits for trucks who can’t stop while traveling down toward North Carolina. It’s a scary thought to think about losing control of your rig and potentially putting others in danger. From the top, I could always look out and see for what seemed like one hundred miles. Seeing the rolling hills and beautiful landscape I always see in my mind the beauty of what God has made.
I’ve visited many other cities and countrysides along the way. Laredo Mexico, Texas, including Dallas. And Huston. New Orleans, Chicago, Nashville, Wisconsin, New York New York, and Georgia just to name a few.
I’m a big fan of green vegetation and new places to discover. I’ve recently stumbled upon this app called AllTrails, which seems promising showing the locations of trails around your local area where you can hike and discover new locations. I think after exiting my trucking days I’ve discovered a love for travel and hope to enjoy that with my family more as I grow with them. One of my next adventures on my bucket list is to go to the BC trail in BC. it is a ten-day hike that follows the coastline of the Pacific ocean in the rain forest of BC’s national parks.
