I am happy with my life. I realize it is about over, realistically speaking. We know of folk who drive RV’s up into their eighties, but they are exceptions. We want to travel as long as we can feel comfortable that we are not endangering ours and others lives. I think I will be able to accept it, if I live that long.
We have nothing against living and staying in one place, but prefer to be on the road. The one question we have been asked is, ‘ how do you live without your ‘stuff’ ‘.
It really isn’t a problem. And in reality I carry enough ‘stuff’ to satisfy that little corner of my life. WE toyed with the idea of a storage facility when we started this life. Some quick math told us it would be cheaper to buy a tractor/trailer box. So I found a 53’ trailer for $1500, that would have been less than a year’s storage. We were in it today. There is ‘stuff’ we will never use, but do not know how to get rid of it. So we leave it. We have slowly given some of the furniture away. We can at least walk through it.
Yes, we know we are fortunate we have a place to park the trailer in the woods. We usually look into it once a year. I know it is a haven for snakes and mice. It seems the snakes have won out and the mice seem to be gone. I don’t mind the snakes. I know if you make enough noise we will never see the snakes or mice. So it is better to have the snakes, they do not eat furniture or bed clothes. That is sound logic isn’t it? ISN’T IT? I thought so.
Anyway we went in to get the back packing stuff we hope to use this summer. Sherry has been washing the clothes because they have a musty odor as you could imagine. So now we have our back packing stuff almost ready. The tent is up by the way. To be honest I had forgot how to put it up. It took a few minutes to figure out the many parts. But it is up. Maybe it will rain and I can check to see if if leaks.
I took pictures to let you see where I keep our stuff and how much I have in the ‘basement’. (Tomorrow the inside of our home)
Thanks for coming this way.
Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:
Wouldn’t you like to be smart enough to say something like that 200 years before it happens.
Also I wish I was smart enough to have said this:
