I like that challenge as it makes for a great time The only issue is the part of imposing on others to save some money. The Canadian in me see's the beauty in a tent and 30 days of living with no required destination. Lose the whole mooching off buddies/family and do a real road trip. Camping on a secluded beach with the sound of the waves crashing on the beach and the warmth of a campfire is an amazing experience. Waking up to that first coffee and knowing that the sunrise is going to make the dawn patrol sessions the highlight of the trip absolutely Epic! . Hitting a spot that is firing and being able to stay until the wind quits or you do is what it is all about. No wind than a quick internet search to see what area is going off next is the only road map needed. No requirements to be anywhere but the ability to be everywhere is what the North American road trip is all about. It appears that you think that extended trips is an isolated thing to your neck of the woods. Extended road trips is a right of passage for most of us as is traveling to other countries.
everyone likes that way ,put together wishes of wife,sons,friends(kiters and not),find a good and safe place with nice weather wind waves and good foods is a "mission impossible"
camping on a tent for 30 or more days?
where is that place?
let's go togheter! will be a wonderful circus!
it is not a challenge between US and EU simply because there is only one at the start,
you cannot partecipate!!!!!! monday morning is waiting for you every week!!!!!!!!
do not misunderstand me ,do not hate US ctz. Our kiting life ,relationship and politics are two different things.
US way of living will have one result: our sons will live worse than us .
should be 50 per cent working for toys and other 50 for using the rebels!
would not have been better sink nina pinta and santa maria and send cristoforo on a horse south or east?
ooops!!!!! dear Toby why don't you make a dedicated forum section for trolling ,insulting and offending each other? opening at our own risk ,president of course Bob M.[/quote]
Something must be lost in the translation! You seem to believe that all North Americans live to work.... you are sadly mistaken brother! Monday mornings don't mean anything to me... Yes there are people that work a 9to5 but not everyone. Unless you are independently wealthy than you have to report to work at some time. My quality of life (and I can only speak on my behalf) is very high..... I do work a high stress job (Paramedic) but I get paid very well and work less than 4 months combined for the year (after holidays and stats)! I use kiting and other outdoor pursuits to keep myself balanced. I don't stress over the things I cannot control nor do I allow myself to be burdened with trying to compete with the jones's! I live my life doing the things that I love to do. My profession enables me the time off and resources to travel a lot. My wife shares the same desire to be as free as possible and my kids are learning that there is a big beautiful world outside!
The beauty of my North American job enables me to have the luxury to be off for three months at a time while still collecting my pay cheque! It doesn't come down to where you live but the lifestyle you choose to have!
