Frankly, I am full of them.
My immediate response to the five year time frame was that I need to see all the stuff in the world that I have always dreamed of seeing. I need to travel till I simply cannot anymore.
But this brings up so many questions.
How do I quit life and become a traveler? How do I get rid of all the stuff I have acquired over my 35 years? How can I afford such an endeavor? How can I not afford such an endeavor from a spiritual/mental point of view? What happens if I get sick on my journey? Where do I go? Where do I go first? How do I leave a place that is home to me, that I never really plan on returning to? Where will I find a new place to call home? What exactly do I need for these travels? Will my friends come and meet me somewhere on my journey?
And those are just the most pressing questions? Well other than the ever present, all consuming “just how long do I have till my kidneys blow out?”
Sadly, I have no answers for these yet. But I am working on it. And with my goal of having an outline of what I want to do by August 1st, I am working on it quite hard.
this song seems wildly appropriate:

The Chemical Brothers (featuring Beth Orton) – Where do I Begin

About Randy

I'm just a guy trying to out run his dying kidneys and live life as vibrantly as possible. Until I can't. I grew up in Tejas. Went to school in Vermont. And currently live in Brooklyn. But not for long....

    • Randy says:

      once i get going i will have a page that will list when i approximatively plan on being where to help assist people in stopping in one me. so we can plan from there dana. it would be great to see you out yonder.

    I love this idea. I haven’t seen you since high school. Might be fun to make a trip with Leigh & Vinnie to meet you. I dread to think of personal “fund raisers” to fund your trips, but they often work. I guess there’s the Make-a-Wish Foundation, but that’s just for kids. Anyway, I’d love to hear where you want to go.

    • Randy says:

      yes, leigh has already said she will visit me somewhere on the route.
      that would be nice.
      and as for the fund raiser idea, yeah…
      i think i am going to need to get over the fear of asking. considering doing a kickstarter, but am not sure what i would give away as inducement.
      thanks for reading eric.
