But I think that is one of the goals embedded in the switch to bus-life, to make time my friend. I need to change my relationship to time. Its hard to break the slave mentality.
I do see your point though, we are losing access to our national treasures like national monuments and parks and maybe we should be in a hurry to see them before all of them are given away.
I'm looking at building-the-bus time as bus-time in my new world, I'm broke down but not along side the road or in some distant campsite. I'm just camped out in my back yard
with easy access to showers and a good BBQ; and no need to be in hurry to move on. Its also helping me to think about what should be with me in the bus, what stays at base camp and what should get sold.
I don't ever see myself as a true nomad, but as a slow moving, long term relaxed traveler with a base camp a long ways away that I will return to once in a while for repairs, refits etc.
I really enjoy my shop and shop-time but I'm prepping for my last adventure. If I'm lucky I may have more than one last adventure
, it just depends on health and money.
