When Plans Don’t Go Accordingly, Pivot and Smile

I learned that plans will not always go accordingly early in my trip when I was towed in Orlando. The plan after visiting Amicalola Falls State Park was to camp in Virginia. I call them the morning of, let them know my plan to arrive by 8:00pm EST, and arrive to a closed gate. I call another campground to find they want $25 for me to pitch a tent under their pavillion.

Camping At Amicalola Falls State Park

After enjoying Memorial Day at the Buckhead I ventured onto the tallest waterfall east of the Mississippi River, calling ahead to find out primitive camping was first come first serve I accidently stumbled onto the campgrounds with electricity and paid $5 a day for full access to the best campground I have yet to stay in.

Visiting the Tallest Waterfall in Florida at Falling Waters State Park

Falling Waters State Park

After spending a great week in Orlando, I Found this destination by searching Google for “the tallest waterfall in Florida” and I failed to realize it was Memorial Day Weekend and I called 5 hours before arriving to find that they are at capacity.

Luckily Jacob listened to my story about visiting the tallest waterfalls as I trek across the United States and how I only needed 2 trees to pitch a hammock and he was more than glad to accommodate me. Typically $18 per night I got hooked up and only had to pay $11 each night.

Spending an Unexpected Week in Orlando

So on May 17th, I left Fort Lauderdale for the World.

With a limited budget my original plan was to spend 70% of my time camping, and 30% crashing on friends couches. On my drive up I call the KOA in St Augustine, they wanted $45 for me to pitch a hammock between 2 trees. Nuts

I Don’t Know Where I Am Sleeping Next Week And I am Excited About It

Making Everyday A New Adventure

On May 17th,  I left Fort Lauderdale for the world. I got into my 2006 Toyota Corolla, put a goat on it backcountry put a goat on it and started driving north. My original plan was to head west to California but an incredible free conference put on by Wikipedia at New York Law School changed my course by a few thousand miles.

I firmly believe growth isn’t spurred unless you thrust yourself into uncomfortable situations. It has always been my dream to travel and backpack across the world but always thought it as a far fetched dream. I made so many excuses:

  • I’ll travel when I have money
  • I just started a new job after a year I’ll go travel
  • I need to find someone to join me on my adventures

Man Bump That Nonsense

Life is happening, it’s not waiting for us, we could be gone tomorrow. Rather than making excuses make things happen.

Nobody is going to look out for you better than you are going to look out for yourself
