I write this entry with mixed emotions.
We came out on the truck because we needed to pay off some debt and get some savings built up. We have not been consistently making enough money, so after much deliberation, we have decided to take up residence in Utah. We are going to live with my parents for a little while until we get our feet under us, and then find a place of our own. Josh and I both plan to work, and Josh will also go to school. We have applied for jobs and are waiting to hear back from the companies. I am here in Utah currently, and Josh is finishing up on the truck while he waits to hear about a job. We are both disappointed that this didn't work out as well as we thought it would. Some weeks were great, but others weren't. We have had a lot of fun though, and seen a lot of country, and we are so glad we were able to go on this adventure together.
It has also been very stressful at times trying to find places, and keeping our log book according to regulations, and backing up in places that don't have enough room, etc. That part I am glad we won't have to deal with anymore! But the best part has been being together 24 hours a day. For anyone that knows us well, knows how crazy we are about being together all the time. This time apart has been very difficult for us, but I guess we had better get used to it...
We are excited to begin this new adventure together in Utah, and hopefully it will work out better in the long run.
