Ron McCoy understands the importance of experiencing your life, not just living it.

In this episode of “The Journey of My Mother’s Son” podcast, I sit down to talk with Ron McCoy.  When we first met Ron just a few weeks ago we were introduced as “family.”  He is the father of my cousin, Carole’s good friend, Tim.  Tim and Carole have known each other for 30 years and are like family to each other, so that’s how we were introduced.

Ron and his wife spent almost 20 years traveling across the country in an RV.  We speak about the importance of people not just talking about what they want to do in the future, but just going out and doing it.  Life is too short to wait until tomorrow, so go out and experience a life that is lived to the fullest and filled with experiences.

God gave us a beautiful country and way too many people go through their entire life without taking the time to enjoy His wonderful creation.

Since Sandy and I have started this journey, so many people have told us that they hope to do what we’re doing “someday.”  Ron and I are in agreement when we say that someday can be today.  Don’t overthink it, just get out and do it.  Don’t fall into the myths that society creates on how we should go about living our lives.  None of us know how long we have on this earth, so be sure to take advantage of the moment because in reality, the only thing that any of us truly have is this moment.

Even at the age of 80, Ron has no plans of slowing down.  He may not take another 4,000-mile road trip by himself, but he’s not going to stop traveling or enjoying life to the fullest.  He’s looking forward to heading back to the Pacific Northwest and jumping on his new 25-foot boat and doing some fishing and crabbing.
