Count Down to Couch Surfing

It’s snowing today, October 5, 2016, as my 4th summer working and living in the Grand Teton National Park winds down. In less than 3 weeks Sue (my 2005 Suburu Outback) and I will be embarking on a road trip, traveling from Wyoming to Florida. I’ve got generous, loving friends and family in states from here to there willing to give me a warm hug and a safe place to rest my head. I’m happy for a couch but almost all of my supporters have offered an actual bed.

While fat, wet snow flakes pile up outside, I’m sizzling in my dorm room, effecting yet another round of purging  my already meager belongings. Sue can carry quite the load but why should she have to share the burden of my past life? With every pile of impedimenta I take to the “free table” in the Employee Dining Room to share with my coworkers, I feel lighter and richer. I’m making room for my future.
