Last minutes, Sedona! If you want me, let me know. If you don't, then let me go. Just then, Corey walked past and said "hello." I mentioned Corey and Emily, of Where's My Office Now?, in my last blog post, but I hadn't met them. We chatted about the Habitent, and terrific places to camp in the PNW, and before my stomach growled many times Corey had invited me to have breakfast with them.
Emily and Corey live and travel in Boscha, a seriously cool 1987 Vanagon. I grilled them about their technology set-up, their propane, their sleeping quarters, their pop-top - whatever brassy questions I could think of. They answered all of them graciously. I pictured myself living in Boscha, and I can totally see it. Surfboards and all. These two surf, mountain bike, kayak, hike. Their metabolism slowed just talking to me.
Tell me if you've noticed this on the road: people just get down to it. Life on the road is a pineapple with the husk already hacked away. What do you do for a living? HACK Who is your realtor? HACK What schools do your kids go to? HACK And so, we spent a real morning talking about sweet things and sweet no-things that excite and inspire us. Emily drew me a map to get to one of her favorite spots, and I'm thinking today or tomorrow might be perfect.
Another family camped here also seems intriguing. I haven't met them yet, because I'm shy. Maybe there are reasons to stay in Sedona just a little longer.
