In preparation for My Scotty Adventure, I began watching a lot more YouTube. I still do this because it allows me to stay connected to people that are on a similar path.
One of the people that I follow is Carolyn and her channel, Carolyn’s RV Life. She hit the nail on the head with this little nugget…
Don’t let other people’s fears and preconceived ideas keep you from living your life.
I was seriously considering Slab City before watching her videos. After listening to her insights, she cemented the deal. Here is a two-ish minute excerpt from her last day in Slab City.
My advice is to go out and experience things for yourself… talk to people, look them in the eye… get to know that which you fear before you pass judgment. I think that’s pretty much what the Slab City experience has been about… walking around, looking people in the eye… getting to know them, spending some time here in a community and getting to know what it’s really about instead of buying into the hype.
If you like what you see/hear, you can watch her video and others here.
Several people have suggested that I post videos on YouTube and blog more about my day-to-day routine. I may do this in the future, but for now I am content with sharing on Facebook and Instagram with an occasional blog post. 😀
