I have officially emptied my storage unit. I donated most of the items to ARC and the rest I brought back to my condo. I still need to go through some of the boxes and figure out what is important and what is not. Minimizing life’s material possession is very liberating, yet I feel a certain cense of nakedness getting rid of everything. The positive thing is that I’m saving $140/month that I was spending on that storage unit.
I have got my second round of HEP A and B vaccinations which my company health insurance to paid for. I still have one more round of shots which will be on my near departure date.
This is tough one. I know that I need to sell my vehicle soon before the slow auto season starts. My days are numbered and I know I can get more for the sell now than if I sell it during the holiday season. It’s big thing to give up the vehicle. Running errands plus feeling trapped in the microcosm of where I work/live/play will be difficult. I keep telling myself that these sacrifices are for the greater good and my ultimate goal/dream. I am hoping to put it on the market this week or next. Most likely next week.
I have scheduled an appointment with the DMV to get my license renewed. It will expire when I’m on my trip. I figure it is best to go with all my documents unexpired so I am renewing early. After that I get that renewed I will use my drivers license to get an International drivers license. It is $15 and lasts for a year. AAA is one of the legit places that offers them. They are good for a multitude of countries and they are written in various languages.
Travel Doctor Consultation
I need to schedule this in the next week or two so they can update me on anymore recommended travel vaccines. They will also prescribe all the medicines for WHEN I do get sick.
