    Day 29 | It’s Time to Move On…

    April 7, 2017

    Unfortunately, the Bureau of Land Management only allows 14 days of dispersed camping at the same campsite. We’re hitting the 14-day deadline this Monday and are going to have to move again. I wish we could just leave for a day and then come back but there are lots of rules to prevent people from doing that sort of thing.

    We still have no idea where we’re going from here and it’s been weighing on me a lot these last two days. It’s so discouraging to have to leave almost as soon as things started getting better. Stability seems to hate us!

    To be honest, I’m feeling a bit discouraged. Finding this place was a difficult process and we tried many locations that didn’t work before we landed here. Finding another place where I feel good that also happens to be warm enough and close enough to water, food and internet seems like an overwhelming task. We’re weary and don’t have the energy for that.

    We’re praying that God would provide us with a place we can stay more long term. It would be ideal if we knew someone with a lot of land in a good location who would be willing to let us camp on their property for a few months. We’ll see what happens. God has been faithful this far. He won’t let us down now.

    “As for His failing you, never dream of it — hate the thought of it. The God who has been sufficient until now, should be trusted to the end.”
    – Charles Spurgeon
