Go Forth and Be Fruitful
As young and impressionable minds we’re often told to go out and make something of ourselves in life. This concept of being fruitful gets implanted early and so we tend to rush through life, constantly seeking the next achievement. Being on the road tends to slow down the pace and force the mind to accept the beauty of the journey rather than the end result. This is a wonderful lesson and I respect it greatly. Nonetheless every now and then one gets the urge to be fruitful again and thankfully there’s many ways to do it that don’t involve becoming a arborist.
In fact, RV’ers “do” all the time and one of the most satisfying and easy ways to start is with volunteering. Being now ~3 months into our journey Paul and I have started to look at ways to make ourselves useful (other than to each other, that is) and I’m happy to say we’ve bagged our first two volunteering slots. Next week we’ll be spending a week at Dog Town, a huge animal rescue in Utah, and a place I’ve wanted to visit for years. Then, a couple of months down the road we’ll be joining a Habitat For Humanity build in S.Dakota through an organization called RV Care-A-Vanners (RV’ers who build).
So, fear not that you will be idle, the answer is in your hands.
