a. How do you live in such a small space?
Our needs aren’t great. We read, I journal. I hope to get back to writing seriously soon. It is comfortable. I have never liked a lounge chair, if I am going to lay down I will go to bed. We have both become computer nuts. She likes face book, and keeping up with the news at home. She does the banking. Right now she is playing solitary. She loves to play and ‘win’ Solitary, FreeCell, Spider Solitary and Hearts before going to be every night. I follow one discussion forum and the Blogosphere.
God has been good to us, we own several nice properties we could move into, but we prefer to be on the road.
b. How can you guys live that close together and not fight?
I answered that one on an earlier entry.(I like her!)
c. Where is your stuff?
Yeah, folks must have their stuff. The motor home has a lot of storage space underneath called the basement. There is storage under the bed and couch. Plenty of room for ‘stuff’.
When we decided to do this full time we tried to sell and give away everything. for one reason or another we had a lot left. Being cheap, I could not see renting storage space at $100-$200 a month. We bought a trucking trailer for $1500. Being on the road now for 12 yrs, that trailer has paid for itself. We still have about 3 acres of woods so we pulled the old trailer back in the woods to keep it out of sight. Funny thing I go in it and say ‘none of this stuff is worth holding onto’ except a pretty dining room suit and one BR suit.
And yes the snakes, and mice enjoy the place while we are gone. hahaha. (Paula, new MATTS will be required)
d. How do you keep enough clothes?
One thing, as a rule we stay in warm climate, and for me that is the least of my worries. Some jeans, one suit for funerals/weddings, T-shirts and work shirts. Sherry must be more imaginative. She has one 4’ closet. Women are forced by society to have more clothes and shoes. She does great and always looks good. I keep trying to get her to be a cowgirl, jeans and shirts, cannot quite convince her.
c. How do you decide where to go?
We have flipped a coin. Sometimes it is because of needs. We once went to Mercedes TX to cross the border for me to get dental work.(No dental ins) Another, people we meet will tell us of some out of the way interesting place. i.e. Don & Evelyn told us of the ‘House on the Rock’ in Wisconsin. We had a ball.
Maybe more later? This has gone on too long.
PS: Never argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
From the House on the Rock:
These were on the inside of the ‘House on the Rock’.
They are full size.
This is taken from a few miles away, the most advertised part of the house on the rock. A huge cantilevered glass room.
