Where’s Walden?

I’ve always loved the quote “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.” by Thoreau.  It’s inspired many great undertakings including this one.  However, I have to admit that until recently I had never read Walden.

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.”                                                                                                              – Henry David Thoreau

So in preparation for our journey, I decided it was time to give it a read.  I’m not going to lie, I eventually ended up with an Audible version as well since it isn’t the easiest book to stay awake through.   As I was listening to it, I realized that our Airstream was our version of Walden.  Not nearly the same as Thoreau’s cabin but the same concept of simplification and a wild connection with nature.
