thiswildidea Morning view, it's good to remember these peaceful places of solitude. It's not always like this ya know.
-
What happened in Charlottesville yesterday, all of the horrible White Supremacist rhetoric and violence, got me thinking about my time growing up in the South. Every summer I would spend months on my Grandfathers farm in Pollocksville, NC. I'd ride on his tractor and explore the woods. Neat little side story here is our family use to own the land that is now Camp Lejeune. Anyhow it really was a lovely time. But my Grandfather would casually and despairingly drop the N word to cut others down. He would tell me stories about being a young boy and growing up around freed slaves his father owned, but not as if they were humans to be loved, but that an outside force made them change and now they'd have to pretend and go along.
-
I hated that side of my Grandfather. Even as a young boy in my heart I knew it was wrong. But then I'd go back home to the big city that had new perspectives where folks didn't talk like that and all seem fine. But that really wasn't true, it was just more subtle, masked in some sort of nod to history as if it deserved that respect. The schools I went to were Stonewall Jackson Middle and the Lee-Davis High. Our mascot was a Confederate solider, he would ride across the field on a horse carrying the school flag. Wild right? I graduated in 2001, this wasn't that long ago y'all. Blows my mind thinking that the leaders and adults in that generation felt justified in their White Resentment.
-
Those were the things on my mind this morning as I looked out across the dry Montana landscape. I know one thing for sure, now more than even, I'm looking forward to a more diverse America. I'm gonna embrace it.

thiswildidea Only been in my new adventure mobile a few weeks and I'm already in love. Somedays I do miss my FJ60 (which I'm keeping forever) but this dreamboat feels like a little home, so cozy! Going from tight quarters to a space I can stretch out in makes me smile every morning. I think I'm gonna call it Delwood ☀️
-
After living on the road for so many moons here's my short list of what I was looking for my 'close to ultimate rig'. The biggest question you have to answer is do you want 4x4, if you never go off-road you can get a 2wd van v cheap.
-
So here was my list!:
-
Classic car aesthetic / boxy 
Space you can stand up in
4x4
Permanent bed area
Refrigerator
Dedicated water storage
Power inverter
Desk
Fan
15+ mpg

thiswildidea Been laying low the past week or so, just enjoying what I see with my eyes. After doing this 5+ years somedays you wake up and really need to reflect on what you're pointing your camera at, what is there left to say?
-
Today that's a deep love of being on the water with 2 creatures I admire a whole bunch.

thiswildidea Loving my new adventure setup! So nice to have a space that I can live in and call my own. Waking up in the morning and having a couch to drink coffee on is a dream. Next week I'm installing solar panels and will be completely off the grid ✨
-
After spending sometime with this truck I'm so thankful I got 4x4 , getting into the backcountry spots has been a long passion of mine but for a few I was considering a 2wd Sprinter van since the 4x4 models cost 50k+! Grateful I went for the reliable ole diesel pickup

thiswildidea With deep joy, and a sigh of relief from months of work, I get to announce that my 2nd book is available for preorder today! There's a link out in my bio ✨ your support means the world to us and it's the biggest way that we get to keep creating what we love!
-
Maddie Lounging on Things is a collection of 150 photos I took from us stomping around the country over the past 4 years. I poured my heart into these images and its such a blessing to see them in print.
-
It was a pleasure working with @abramsbooks and @kylesteed on the cover. I'm nothing short of blessed that this is my life and it's not lost on me that all y'all following us over the years is the reason I get to do this. Thank you so much 🙌🏼

thiswildidea After years of traveling in my FJ60 (#BeanTheFJ60) I came to a spot where I needed some more comfort for living on the road so much. I wanted something I could stand up in, had a desk, with a nice size bed, stove, and a little fridge ✨ a rig that felt a bit like a home.
-
After researching a bunch of options from Sprinter vans to Unimogs I decided on a 1995 F250 with the 7.3L diesel + I found an amazing deal on a 1988 Grandby pop up camper that was in wonderful condition. This setup gets me 17mpg @ 70mph with plenty of power.
-
The F250 is a full size truck but its not as bulky as a Sprinter van so I can still get down a lot of trails I enjoy. It's also a common vehicle around here, much simpler to fix than a Unimog.
-
So my advice if you're looking for a new rig is to be patient and go drive a bunch of options! The pop up campers are crazy expensive brand new so wait for a used one!

thiswildidea You have to stop running and let it all catch up with you, pain is what makes us deep.
-
I love looking back and discovering the small moments that felt like everyday life but in time become the moment of change. My life was so different last July. I ain't much of a story teller but for me it was sitting on a porch with @ruthielindsey, @amystroup, and @jedidiahjenkins. They were talking about the Enneagram and how it became this integral part of knowing themselves.
-
I won't wax about it too much but 3 things have been so important to transforming my heart this year: Nashville, therapy, and the Enneagram.
