Our two week trail run in Tri-Cities came to an end on Sunday. Our goal was to familiarize ourselves with the motorhome, learn how things worked, decide what still needed changed or updated, and confirm that our workstations and networks met the demands of our jobs. With the exception of a few things, we would call our trial run a success. We pulled up stakes and headed further south to Salem Oregon with sights set on Northern California (anyplace warmer then where I’ve been as far as I’m concerned).
Finding routine is something that has proven very difficult these past few months, but we finally see light (and not an oncoming train) and can focus on so many things that are important to us. One of my goals in this life transition is to change how I spend my time; focusing on my physical health, my mental health, and my spiritual health. Spending quiet time in the morning supports my mental and spiritual health and hitting my yoga mat in the evening is strengthening my physical health.
Here’s a quick picture of what our workdays look like. And before you gasp, yes these aging eyes warrant the 40 inch monitor – it just makes life easier and is really no different than all the monitors I had on my desk at work. With the exception of conference calls, our days are quiet – Travis is good company but I have to admit, I’ve found that I miss the jabber of my co-workers.
We fell in love with the pictures of our next stop – a quiet place on the Klamath River in Northern California and were sorely disappointed to learn there is no cell service which makes working impossible for both of us. With that said, it’s back to the Internet for more research. Until then ~ Salem is our home.
