Missive 9: The Bucket List

Missive 9: 1 January 2019, Tuesday

Greetings from our family to yours and Welcome to another TrailMagick89 missive,

This is the year that we, Sweets and I, knock a few things off of our bucket list. We have a few bucket list items that we have put on our bucket list. The first item on our list was to start a business together and today is the grand opening of TrailMagick89. Yeah, yeah we know we have been posting for quite some time and making statements about a variety of subjects; we would call those posts our soft opening.

Well, you may be wondering what a “Tramily” is there are two definitions and we will be using the second definition. As you know we each walk our own trail. Tramily – travel family or trail family. Most people that have become part of a tramily have trail names and as you know ours are Sweets and Elroy. I was given mine by a fellow traveler, who gave me the name as I looked like an old time farmer. And Elroy was the name he associated with old time farmers. Sweets was given her name because she reminded him of his daughter and her mannerisms were so sweet.

Now as this year dawns we will be focusing on our spiritual walk with Jesus, improving our health, and backpacking more and more. Each Tuesday after today we will be either posting about what makes a Christian a Christian on every odd numbered Tuesday, on the even numbered Tuesdays we will be looking at our specific health concerns and how they effect our Bucket List. In sharing what we experience, our hope is that even when health is a concern, our items on a Bucket List can still be checked off.

I was told last Summer I should consider changing my trail name to Trail Magic as wherever I go I have a tendency to hand out power bars and bottles of water. Most people know me enough that I am a grumpy person. And even when I am filled with great joy I am still grumpy, well at least I look that way. It surprises people when I walk up to them and offer a bit of food.

Well this missive is slowly taking shape and it is due to the fact that we want to make sure it is from the heart and not negative. Most of the more controversial posts we have done gets more likes and we seem to get more people following us. That has ended with the end of 2018.

So dear tramily I will be posting blog missives that fit in a happier more pleasant view. Bucket Lists are a unique thing. Many people have them and they include items that people want to do before they die. More often than not they are based on an individual. We have decided to take our Bucket List and merge them so that we can experience life together.

To simply put or rather address what make a Christian a Christian is a follower of Christ. What determines whether or not Sweets and I will knock things off of our Bucket List is can we wake up each morning and put one foot in front of another over and over again. And finally posting on Thursdays will be going towards blog missives about planning each part of each item on our Bucket List.

Greetings from our family to yours and Welcome to a TrailMagick89 missive, We write these missives to bring awareness for those that live on the streets, under bridges, in abandoned buildings. In most countries it is called “Living Rough”. We cover the subject of life as part of the homeless community; where in some places they are called everything from the derogatory “bum” to the more accepted name of “community people”. We have lived on the streets of the big city and small towns alike. We have encountered people from all walks of life. We have backpacked long distances and followed the trail just to see where it would take us with no destination in mind. After ten years of living on the streets we have found that stories of life of a vagabond and a tramp (modern day nomads) have lessons to share. Our preferred mode of transportation is on our Terratrike Rover Tandem that we have named Max. We talk About Us; from living on the streets around the Eastern part of America to living in yet another small town. We talk about the Bible; the beliefs of the community people. We talk about Community; regardless of where we have lived we have encountered many people that are all part of community life. We talk about Food; just because we have lived under a tarp it didn’t mean we ate terrible food. We talk about Gear (backpacking, cycling, & camping); the equipment we use usually isn’t high cost though it is of a decent quality. We talk about Health; we share the stories of not only of our health but how you can help other community people. We talk about Other topics when it comes to everyday life. We talk about about PVC projects; PVC is such a great medium for projects that can help around the home or campsite. And we talk about our dream of opening a Tiny Home community. We like to share our life with others in hopes that our adventures and misadventures bring a smile and a laugh to you, our readers. We thank you, that you, have taken time out of your day to share yourself with us. We appreciate that you stuck around until the end.
