Memories Last A Lifetime

Moments Turn Into Memories


Hello World,

Today a friend brought a few campers over too see the bus and he himself hasn’t seen it in a while either.. I showed them the before pictures and they were amazed at what I’ve done and said it’s inspiring them to do it too…. Now Not that I’m tooting my own horn (even though it did feel incredible coming from strangers) the feeling I had made me think about everything that has happened during this project… πŸ€”πŸ˜±πŸ™„πŸ˜‘πŸ˜’πŸ˜¨β€

The good, the AHHHH’s, the hell yes times and the oh shit times too… And yet each and every moment, good, bad and indifferent are moments that got me to where I am today and the feeling is amazing πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜…

I have been absolutely loving working on the bus and to see it coming all together is a feeling I really can’t explain πŸ€” πŸ™„. Although there have been quite a few wtf’s and doing things over cause of my picky butt lol when I look back at when I started till now I can actually say wow Ricci.. you’ve done good πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€— and that is an amazing feeling β€πŸ™β€

Don’t ever forget to pat yourself on the back for a job well done or any accomplishment. Embrace every moment in your life, cause no matter if they are good, bad or indifferent…. It’s every one of those moments that make for memories that last a lifetime and those moments and memories make up your life… 

Goodnight Universe ❀🌻❀

It’s Okay To Take A Break

You Do Not Have To Quit


Hello World,

Another day to remember to practice what I preach 😱😱😱 I’ve been working so hard on the bus and not taking breaks that this morning I woke up tired and stressed out a little πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„ and if course this poem came to mind… πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„.

We all want to give 110% yet we can’t do that all day long… Cause when we try to do so, we beat ourselves up when something goes wrong. πŸ˜‘πŸ™„πŸ˜‘…

So learn to take a break from things… You don’t have to quit.. just know it’s okay to take a break and rest a little bit…πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜.

So today is 82 degrees with 91% humidity AHHHHHHHHH 😫😫😫😫😨😨😨😨… So I decided that since it will be like a steam room inside the bus, I’m gonna take a break today and wash the outside cause it needs it badly and I’ll get to play with the water hose hahaha… I definitely need to get the electricity situated inside and now only need $384 to have everything I need, the inverter, batteries and solar kit to run the fridge and the fans, lights at night and a few other things.. my gofundme link is still active and below for anyone that can help…

I’m so very close and am so grateful for all the love and support from everyone… 

Much love to you all and have a beautiful day world 🌻🌍🌻

We Aren’t Invisible

We’re Here To See Each Other Through


Good evening my friends πŸ€—πŸŒ»

With all the devastation between Hurricane Harvey, Irma and the possibility of Jose… It made me think about how important it is for us all to be here for each other πŸ€”πŸ™πŸ€”.

Some things we can’t control like Mother Nature… Some things we can like offering a helping hand… It’s not something we have to do yet it’s definitely something we all should do… πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—.

Kindness doesn’t cost a thing and it can truly change someone life… We aren’t invisible yet so many turn their heads when they see someone less fortunate or not “like”they are… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”. 

We aren’t here to be better than or to see through each other… We are here to see each other through.. cause when it comes down to it that’s what we’re here to do… We ARE one!!! 

Goodnight night universe, Goodnight my friends πŸ€—πŸŒ»

Don’t Let Fear Halt Your Progress

Let Faith Propel Your Success


Hello World,

This morning after I did my daily routine of meditating, making my coffee and contemplating what I want to do in the bus today, I looked inside from the back and actually got all teared up πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„.

My mind took me back to when I was afraid that getting the bus would never happen and I smiled looking at all the progress I have made… πŸ€—πŸ˜€πŸ€—…

New adventures and changes are scary that’s true… Just don’t ever let fear get the best of you… πŸ˜€πŸ€”πŸ™„

The inside of the bus is looking really good and I’ve pushed past my fears and have done what I could.. now it’s almost ready and so am I to go spread my son’s ashes and start saying goodbye… Not to forget just to move on with my life and live all my dreams for the rest of my life πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ™

The total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful to ask that have helped me get this farπŸ˜€β€πŸ€—.

I am still needing to purchase a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries as well as a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times πŸ€— My gofundme link is still active and is below for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know.

Breath Deep, Be Calm, Stay Focused

Cause Panicking Can Get You And Others Hurt


Hello World,

The last couple of days have been crazy with everyone watching hurricane Irma and although I too live in Florida I’m no where near it’s projected path.. Like I’m seriously 400+miles away from it’s path.. 

Yet today I went into town to the grocery store and the frenzied panic in the store made me leave and not get what I went there for. The look of fear and panic on everyone’s face made me realize how crazy people get and how they panic rather than calming down and focusing on what needs to get done  πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„..

When people panic, people get hurt and that’s scarier than the storm…We can’t control mother nature, yet we can control ourselves.. please stay calm and focus on what you need to do so you don’t hurt someone else….πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”

I know this storm is scary yet we all now what we need to do… So take a deep breath and please be calm so you don’t hurt yourself and others too!!!πŸ™β€πŸ™

As for me I’m working in the bus and sticking to my goal… The total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful.πŸ˜€β€πŸ€—

I am still needing to purchase a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries as well as a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times πŸ€— My gofundme link is still active and is below for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know. 

My goal date to embark on my journey is my son’s birthday October 4th and I’m so close, it’s right around the corner and I’m so excited to begin β€πŸ€—β€

True Friends Will Always Stay

Even If Your Far Away


Hello World,

The last 10 days has been incredible and amazing… 

Seeing friends that are actually family, that I’ve know for over 40 yrs yet haven’t seen since 1987 has been an incredible event in my life… 

Going back to the places I grew up, having flashbacks of the times I spent there from 5 yrs old to 29 yrs old brought up past emotions from when my mom passed in 1985 and even issues that I thought I had dealt with yet actually stuffed… 

Yet it truly was incredible and very much needed… β€πŸ‘¨β€β€β€πŸ‘¨

Being there and seeing old friends and making some new…truly helped me realize what should be important to you.. and it doesn’t matter if you’re together or apart… True Friends are family that stay in your heart.. and no matter where you go or what ever you do… True friends will always be right there for you!!!! 

Have a beautiful day my friends πŸŒ»πŸ€—πŸŒ»

Everything Starts With A Dream

And Dreams Do Come True


Hello World,

This evening I was talking to a friend about the bus and my travel goals and I felt an almost overwhelming sense of AHHHHHHHH πŸ€—πŸ€— 

A feeling that’s almost unexplainable yet at the same time it was a feeling of accomplishment knowing that my dream is coming true right before my eyes β€πŸ€—

Everything we want in our lives start as a dream.. A dream that goes from a wish, to hope, to belief, to determination, to a goal and with work, time and patience our dreams do come true… 

Never ever stop believing in your dreams.. Never ever stop believing in YOU πŸ€—β€πŸ€—
I’m down to only needing help to get the 2000 watt inverter and the 200 watt solar panel kit for me to have electricity inside without using the engine batteries while stopped at night. The active link is below for anyone that can help or share the link… Please click on β€œRead More” under the picture of me and my son to read about my journey πŸ€—β€πŸ€—

Thank you all for sharing you… I am gratefulπŸ™β€
