Leaving the WE CARE HOUSE in the Morning
When we get out of the glass bottle of our ego and when we escape like the squirrels in the cage of our personality and get into the forest again, we shall shiver with cold and fright. But things will happen to us so that we don’t know ourselves. Cool, unlying life will rush in.” – D. H. Lawrence
Today our rent is up at the We Care House and we decided not to pay for January. We are going to move out in the mornning and put what little we have that we do not need on the road in the strorage unit. Tomorrow we are going to head in the general direction of New Orleans, with Pensacola Florida our final destination. We would like to head for the Florida Keys but have to be back to see the doctor on January 12. The plan is to head east along the coast stopping whenever we feel the urge and camping out at State Parks along the way. We are going to leave Sheila's Miata at her daughter for now and hopefully it will sell soon. Well that at least is our short term plan and we will have plenty of time to make future more detailed plans.
Update: Our plan now is to try and make it to Pensacola Florida to kayak or canoe the Blackwater River for 2-3 days camping overnight on the many sugar white sand bars along the 31 mile stretch of the Blackwater
