Midlife Crisis - Fucking Ran With It!

54 posts in this topic

So...I haven't been on in a while, and last time it was totally unsure what to do with the car etc.  Well, that was all part of the beginnings of a midlife crisis I guess.  Pretty much on my 45th birthday I decided I was not happy with the life I was living so decided to 'Highlander', ie, the Highlander got to live a bunch of lives over the X hundred of years - similar I guess to the vampires in Twighlight, but that's for fags - not that there is anything wrong with that Alan.  Over about a week period I told my wife that I was out of here for an indeterminate period of time, bought an RV, traded my 2014 2500 for a 2007 Wranger (+ cash) - still MOPAR - and hit the road.  I work remote, so set up a full-on office with my 3 monitors etc, and basically have a mobile apartment/office that I drive wherever the hell I want.  Makes me laugh when I think about it that I actually did it.  Time will tell the consequences....but hey, you only live once, and who says you can only live one life.

 

I bought HEMI57's RV, drove the Challenger to pick it up leaving the Challenger in his barn and bailed.  It's been pretty cool.  I'm in NM right now after heading out of TX.  Next week going shopping in CO, then heading UT, NV, CA, and up to spend a few months on the coast in OR. Who knows what will happen in the long run....but hey, I was not happy with where I was at, and maybe the Aboriginal Walkabout thing is in my blood (or was in the water at least).  I have never lived anywhere for more than about 5 years, and coming up on 7 in Austin, so that may be part of it.

 

See y'all at CF8!  I'll be the asshole with a PBR in one hand and keys to a Vagina that's faster than Howie's in the other....but I'm not prepared to race him again - beat him at CF7 and hanging up my hat on that one.  :)

 

Speedy - do I get to start counting the miles traveled to CF8 now?

WTG Murray.  What a concept.  I work from home so you may have just inspired me a bit to think about a mobile office.

 

Have fun, be safe and most importantly, dont take anyone or anything to seriously........ ;)

It really is working out well working from the RV.  I usually have a great view, it is pretty quiet, and I don't have many distractions.  I put a trucker antenna on that boosts the mobile signal, so I have not had internet issues - even running WebEx's has worked out well.  After work I can usually go for a bike ride, take the Jeep up a mountain, or just sit my ass down and enjoy a few beers enjoying the view.  This week I arrived Monday, work T-F, visited Tent Rocks after work yesterday, will explore tomorrow, then Sunday drive to CO and set up for a M-F work week in the mountains.  It does take planning each week for the next week, but I am heading to the coast to set up for a month at a time in different beach towns.  I feel like a tech hipster....not shaving an all.  :)

He got 12 years of RV experience in about a week.. I was getting text msg's up the ass for the first week or so. But, I think he is finally getting the hang of it.

Holy crap Murray, when you decide to do something, you really go balls to the wall. Congrats dude! I'm sending you a text, but who the fuck knows when you'll get it. Respond when you do...

Murray, there a rest stop just west of the co/ut boarder maybe a hundred miles west of grand junction I highly suggest you check out for a day. As your coming thru the basin going across the boarder you'll start a fairly long climb through a gorge. The rest stop is at the top of it. The north side is pretty cool but the south side is where it's at. It puts you on top on the mesa's and as far as the eye can see you'll be looking out at one of the most beautiful places in the states. Every time I travel to or thru Denver I make sure my timing allows me to travel that area during daylight hours. I can't tell you how many joints I've smoked just kicking it there.

 

Sounds like you're in for some great times, enjoy it brother. I did something like this for a few months in my early 20's and never regretted one minute of it.

Thanks Cam, will do.

 

Stevo - for sure, but hey there are two ways it can go from here and either will be better for each of us.  I just had to be the asshole and take the step.

 

Here is my mascot:

Have myself a corner office with windows on two sides - during the day there is not pizza or a PS4 controller though :)
