...trying to think of fun adventures for the future since he finished his bike trip.
Here are my ideas thus far:
Six months in Alaska, working as a counselor in a quirky town and doing a vlog about it.
Steve creates an awesome coffee table book of all the places in Colorado that he has visited, experienced, done stories on or about. Lots of fun pictures. Sell them to tourists.
Steve delves into the world of ASMR and makes eating videos on YouTube.
Steve buys a tee pee that he lives in and takes up a nomadic lifestyle. Sets up tee pee in walmart parking lots as needed. Makes money by painting portraits.
Steve takes a break from it all and becomes a coffee barista in Arkansas.
First of all, on a serious (and probably annoying) note, adjusting to normal life has been hard. I'm generally doing OK, so no major worries. However, I do kind of feel like the way missionaries sometimes do when they return home after a long outing on the field. Is it counter-culture shock? All I know is, I need time to decompress... to process everything that happened... the trip seemed to end abruptly and I still feel sad about it.
Now, about your ideas:
1) I like the Arkansas barista idea, but you know, I think I'd rather be a barista in northern Louisiana. Did you see when I was practicing my accent?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsZBoq3m7J4
2) ASMR? I had to research it. That sounds weird. :p
3) The tipi idea isn't too shabby. Awww, I miss my tipi!
4) Doing counseling in a quirky town in Alaska (or some other interesting place) is a GREAT idea. And yes, I could do a vlog, or write a second book.
5) The coffee table book idea is blah. That's something Lars Leber would do -- and I support him with that. I'm just not that into it.
P.S. It's great to see you on the Friendship Board, Kelly!!!
