While this book isn’t a chronological account of her life on the road—you can read her blog for that—it does explore Malia’s growth as she learned to count on herself to handle the problems she encountered as she traveled and not to compromise the joy she had in her adventures. The last chapter recounts her latest challenge—a recent diagnosis of lung cancer—and her decision not to seek treatment for it. While she is not without fear about her prognosis, her decision reflects her determination not to compromise the quality of her life, the same drive that has governed her adventures on the road. Malia named her RV “Inspiration,” but she herself is the real inspiration as she encourages us all to fear less in living our best lives.
For anyone considering this lifestyle, this is a must-read. It is down-to-earth, practical, and covers every extreme. Our lifestyle is not for everyone. Anyone who thinks they can walk out of their sticks and bricks home, and take up residence in a house on wheels, who has never been an RVer, is in for some major surprises. Once you learn what they are, and how to live with them, it becomes second- nature, and actually, less stressful.
Thank you, Malia. A few weeks ago you were unsure if you would finish your book - but here it is, in spite of all that you are going through as you prepare for your next journey. All of us who have grown to love and care about you over the years, would really love a peek into what awaits you. Did you know that Amazon already considers this a Best Seller?
You truly are an inspiration - and sharing your lows with us, as well as your highs, simply confirms that. Happy Trails, dear friend, through this world and into the next.
Since writing this review, Malia has moved on to her next life. Her physical presence will be sorely missed, but her spiritual presence will ever shine over us. Enjoy drumming with the angels, dear friend.
Like most of us, Malia battled fear many of the days of her life; but, in her battles, fear was the loser – still around, but vanquished. In this conversation filled with wit, humor and grace, one of the bravest people I’ve ever met will share how she did it and, perhaps, help you discover how you can too.
This is a relatively short book so can be a quick read. However, because it covers so many different emotions and thought provoking ideas that, for me, it will be a book to return to for reminders. As a fulltime RVers, I first discovered Malia's Miles from the RVTravel newsletter. When I linked out to her blog, I was hooked. Unfortunately, by the time I was introduced, Malia was beginning her journey with a cancer diagnosis. I would have liked to have known her sooner, but I suspect that Malia would agree that all things happen in their own time and that "It is ALL Right and ALL is Well."
Malia is a solo fulltime RVer who bravely shares her journey through the ups and downs, the doubts and the confirmations that she is on her Path. As a fulltime RVer, there were so many things that I related to. But, as a newbie, I am still learning. There is so much to see, and experience, in our country that it is easy to feel we are only experiencing the tip of the iceberg.
Malia wrote about being grateful that she started her journey young enough to be able to hike and explore in ways she might not be able at her current age - even if she weren't sick. From my calculations, I am a year younger than she is and I completely relate to that. There are times that I think how even five years ago I would have explored more but I remind myself that the past is over and to be grateful that we took that leap into the unknown of fulltime RVing.
From start to finish, Malia's book felt like a gift to me and I am grateful for her willingness to share herself and her journey. Blessings to her as she continues into the next part of her Journey.
