Philly, Maryland, West Virginia, Kentucky and Missouri (plus a wee little bit of Illinois)
We began November with a hotel switch, opting to spend a few nights on the other side of Philly to get some work finished up before heading back out on the road. Running a business while traveling full time is a constant challenge even when said business is completely portable. Just because we can work anywhere doesn’t mean we have unlimited time to do it and we often find we have to adjust plans according to meet deadlines and stay on top of it all. When we first started out we had the idea that we would be able to do more “stuff” than we have, in reality, been able to do. When this first hit us, it was a bit difficult to swallow but now that we have a better understanding of how it all works we realize that even if we didn’t have a business to maintain and, therefore, many hours that just need to be spent working, we are moving and seeing and doing at a pace that works for us all. This country of ours is so jam packed with trails and parks, lakes and rivers, oceans and forests and mountains and trees. There are historical markers everywhere, state and national parks, museums, zoos, preserves…the list goes on and on. Even in the most remote areas that we stay there is SOMETHING interesting to see or do. So, we have resolved that we will not see and do it all. We have stopped feeling bad when we don’t have a chance to see something nearby and we just do what we can, knowing that we are still doing so much.
So, we decided to stay in Philadelphia for a few more days, where we did some more swimming, some more sightseeing, and tried out a couple more skate parks, while James caught up on work enough to spend the next few weeks on the road.
