Be The Change

Rialto Beach...It is yet another of our amazing Washington treasures that helps me gain perspective.

One of my all time favorite Emerson quotes is; 
 "What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say."  

It goes very well with the title of this post borrowed from Gandhi.

 It also fits well with one of my favorite Bible verses, 1 John, 3:18 which says 
"Let us not love with words or tongue, but with actions and in truth".  

When I remember these things, I always think back to debates and discussions I have had in various groups and forums online. In the end they are just words, easily discarded as opinion. 

I am glad we started this blog.  It is a place we can share what we do and how we live, hopefully with some evidence that it isn't just words, but a life that is proving itself to be more rewarding each day. Perhaps not for everyone, but it has definitely been the right lifestyle for us.

  6. Hi Mike,

    Thanks for posting the link for the rig on my blog and even more for the kind invitation to stop by! That is one nice clean unit! I haven't ruled out the RT yet though I'm leaning toward a travel trailer at the moment. I'll be going out of town on Wed. and passing by a dealer and planning to stop.

  8. Hi Mike, Love the quotes!! We have had our share of medical "opportunities" lately but one day soon we'll be back out and enjoying this great lifestyle. We are actually beginning to look around for our next rig. Still leaning toward the B at this time. Thanks for your blog and knowledge you share!
    Take care!

  9. Hi Mike, I've lived in P.A. for 25 years and I will keep an eye out for your rig. (I designed Frugals.) Our house is selling and we will be out third week of July. It's below the high school. I will be in a van shortly. My dad made my wedding ring (It was my mom's) out of a silver quarter.
    I will try to stay in touch.
