Road Warrior – n. Informal. A person who travels frequently.
Stevie and I have been living that definition for a long time. The official Sprinter Life statistic, as recorded on the home page of our website, is now reading
Time on the road:
1 year, 11 months, 4 days, 11 hours, 56 minutes ago
In that time we’ve taken very few breaks. We’ve stayed in one spot for a couple weeks here and there, but for the most part we’ve been constantly moving for almost 2 years straight.
As Stevie is fond of saying, I tend to engage life like it’s an extreme sport. I’m pretty proud of our near 2 year non-stop rampage. But after returning from vacation in the USA we both agreed that we needed to slow down, and maybe even take a break. There is no place like the beach to unwind and regroup, so we headed for the coast of Ecuador.
We’ve posted up in a small village called Montanita on the southern coast.
We chose this place primarily for it’s year around surfing and famous right point break. Upon arriving, our choice was validated. The area is absolutely beautiful and the surfing is solid. Plus we’ve got strong internet, a private room right on the beach in front of the point break, (only $20 a night), a kitchen, hot water, 2 hammocks, and a sunset balcony facing the ocean (see photo below).
I’ve parked the van and do not intend to move it. We will hang here for about a month.
Now THAT’S moving slow!
Stay tuned, we’ll have some great photos of the town and surf soon.
