The problem, as I see it, with love-of-lawn is that it damages the environment and wastes resources, including the mower’s precious life. How about spending that 70 hours with your children, your spouse, volunteerism, gardening for food, cooking for health, fishing, golf, or aerobic exercise (mowing is not)?
One of the best things about traveling the way we do is meeting new people, some who unselfishly help us, others fellow travelers who understand our passion. Some pass out of memory with time and distance, some change, as we do, and slowly drift away. And there are those who linger in our memories, and hearts, for many years.
