The first was an extended drive in the Spring through the Fraser Valley above Vancouver, B.C., gifting people we met in Starbucks coffee shops with Dong notes to see how they reacted, etc.
We got the temperature reading on how people might react to sudden prosperity, whether they believed there was a new economy coming, how many knew about the global shift in consciousness, etc.
Aside from being a wonderful drive though one of the most scenic parts of Canada, it was also a chance to see how the both of us responded to certain situations. We’ve been told by AAM that we’ll be doing a lot of travel in the future and we wanted to see how well we travelled together.
Well, I can tell you that travelling with Kathleen was a total delight, she’s such a happy, joyful person as you can see from her photographs. If I told you she was brilliant and wise too, you’d think I worked for Madison Avenue so I’ll stop there.
Now here we are in San Pedro, having driven down from Lake Tahoe and met a number of lightworkers along the way and what can we tell you so far in the way of trip notes?
We’ve seen so many capable people and spiritually-adept seekers. Some will be working with the homeless; others with the LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgendered) community; others with animals; still others with the agricultural community. Several are willing to start foundations and channel abundance to others.
We’re not waiting for the Reval to begin building Nova Earth and neither are the folks we’re talking to, all of this thanks to your financial support.
The first is, if you live in an out-of-the-way place, we won’t be able to accept a place to stay unfortunately. If we meet, we’d need to meet you at a crossroads on the main highway.
Two hours there and two hours back is about as much driving as we’d do in a day so that amount of driving spent going to the rest place and returning to the highway is not economical.
Perhaps come to the traveller rather than asking the traveller to come to you? Arrange to meet at a mall where there’s plenty of free parking rather than downtown where there is not.
Also, we won’t be able to tour local sites of interest. That isn’t our mission, at least not on this trip. Talking and listening are the orders of the day on this trip rather than sightseeing.
Another point: If you’re doing this kind of a walkabout, perhaps meet with the whole group in one town first and then ask if people want to meet individually. Many people seem to want to meet others in their vicinity but they also want some one-to-one time to share.
Three individual meetings a day is about my limit. Kathleen can go longer!
Meetings held at lunch or dinner times kill two birds with one stone: everyone has to eat but you also have your meeting as well.
People who want to meet up with travelling lightworkers need to know that the schedule constantly changes as one person says they can’t make it or another wants to be included at the last minute.
Kathleen and I have planned things so that when we reach our last $300, we’ll immediately head home and we’ll have to cancel events at the tail end of the tour. But we can also revisit those areas later more easily too. So there’s a balance.
If you recharge your iPhones and computers in the car, don’t use the $1 power plugs from the dollar store. They overheat and often don’t work. Invest in a good $40 recharging system from Walmart, which won’t overheat and will work.
The Maps app on your iPhone lets you know were your car is at any one moment and so is a step up over a simple map. We couldn’t afford the GPS system (around $100) so we didn’t use one of those but they also seem good.
The “temporary” phones with 30 days life and hundreds of minutes were the best phone arrangement we found. I took out around $70 of phone time, text and data on my iPhone, but (1) the service provider never activated it, (2) it still depended on being within range of signals and often we were not.
The temporary phone worked much, much better. Thanks to Wajid for lending us his. Saved us many a time.
Motel rooms a night these days are around $90 with tax. Hotel rooms are around $130 with tax. Staying in them would quickly have used up all the funds we have. We’re very graeftul to the folks that billeted us.
I would not be doing this if I were not travelling with Kathleen. It’s absolutely no fun to do it alone and an endless party when you have a delightful companion. So again sacred partnership boosts our effectiveness, range, and willingness by an order of magnitude.
More learnings later.
