Yesterday I,dropped Cindy back in LA for work, which ironically is now sort of a worse-case scenario for us. Since a major part of our nomadic plan has been to let whatever job we're on pay for our housing, when we work as locals, like Cindy is doing now and I had been in Atlanta, one of the perks of living on the road, quickly goes away and the some of the downsides become more glaring.
Packing Up Again
Skye and I have around a week in Atlanta. In that time, we'll be trying our best to maintain our day-to-day schedule that include a constantly shifting and swirling home school adventure in learning and our new exercise regimes consisting of running, yoga, circus arts, hooping, jiujitsu etc.
As well as packing up our stuff, which has grown remarkably given the short time we've been here and our efforts to minimize our stuff-getting. Christmas and my needing to put together a leadman's kit didn't help matters.
And of course, there are all the friends to try to see, events to attend and some Atlanta things I want to check out before we get going, like the Georgia Guidestones.
I definitely watch more TV than I need to or perhaps should. I've good plenty of reasons, and excuses.
For educational purposes, for instance, is one of my favorites and there is a lot of truth in that.
Skye has absorbed and learned many different things on a wide variety of subjects.
There have been amazing documentaries and plenty of shows that have value. But for every one of those programs there are dozens of shows like Amish Mafia, Moonshiners, Doomsday Preppers and so on.
Somewhere in the middle is Brad Meltzer's Decoded which I'd never seen before but ran across because it said something about "America's Stonehenge in Georgia"
Why had I never heard about this? Or made the trek?
Unfortunately, it's a couple of hours northeast of Atlanta, so if something's going to get trimmed from our ambitious to-do list....
But I think it may have made its way onto a future to-do list when back in this neck of the woods.
Facebook has been a time-suck for a while now. I've benefited on lot of different levels and living the semi-nomadic way we've been doing for the last couple of years, it has been particularly helpful. But like so many things, it certainly has its limits and I have been over-indulging as of late.
That said, as I lay out the course of our journey over the next several of weeks, I most certainly will be spending sometime on facebook, just with more focus and efficiency.
Tribesports is a site I should have been more committed to in the past, but more or less ignored for a while. I have since used it to help kick-start my physical fitness regime. I've started to use its "challenges" to get and keep me motivated. I've checked off a bunch recently and committed to others.
My latest challenge is a group one, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND, ONE SMALL STEP FOR TRIBESPORTS . I'll be logging my miles of training to help get us to the moon. I'll be putting in a lot of them, so why not.
