Busy Day

I got a lot done today.  I am focusing on taking care of myself so I bought new undies, socks, and walking shoes (brand new, not from the goodwill like I usually do!) .  I bought a fuse for the cigarette lighter in my van.  I don’t smoke but I use the lighter to charge my phone sometimes.  Let’s see…what else???  I ate Pho which is a vietnamese soup I like.  I took a nap.  I’m going to wash the van tomorrow, a major undertaking.  And I’m going to get a pedicure!  So fancy.

I have been looking on Craigslist for a new van.  I would like a “Japanese made” one.  I use parentheses because from what I understand, a lot of the parts are made in the United States.  I have owned both American and Japanese cars before and the Japanese are better.  The technology came from us but they have higher standards.  I would like my “new” van not to have too much more than 100k miles on it.  I would like it to last for a while, at least until I get C paid back.  C is loaning me some money for the new van.  So with my “high” standards, it’s hard to find something in my price range.  I hope Vinny, my current van, can hold out just a few miles more until I find his replacement.

It will be neat having a better vehicle.  It will be better looking so I will blend in better.  I can also take it out of town.  I hardly ever leave town because I’m afraid Vinny breaking down.  The van’s my house don’t forget!  I can’t have it sitting in a mechanic’s yard. (although I HAVE slept in my van in a mechanic’s lot more than once).

Wish my luck finding a new van!

 

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.
