Checking in

Hello Friends,

I didn’t mean to drop of the face of the planet.  I’ve just been busy.

Things are going pretty good here.  It’s getting a little cold at night.  Well it’s cold for this area.  It’s been in the high 40s at night.  I can’t handle the 40s.  I have an amazing sleeping bag that I bought used a couple of years ago.  It’s some kind of military issue item.  I call it The Tarp in my mind because the outer cover is very think and I’m guessing, waterproof.

I would like to rent a room somewhere but still feel a little uncomfortable about the fact that I would almost definitely be short of money all the time.  I need to keep my old van ,Vinnie II running.  Vinnie II is a few years older than Vinnie I was but he’s still old and will require frequent maintenance.  Sometimes I wonder if it’s less expensive to just get a car loan…still, I hate using credit.  You end up paying banksters for sitting at their desks.  It’s such easy money for them.  The heck with that.  I’ll pay the hard-working mechanics.

I wonder how much money I would save on food, if I were able to cook in a rented room.  How much money is reasonable for a single person to spend a week, when they cook at home.  I don’t want to eat beans every night either.  What do you guys and gals think?  Help me crunch the numbers!  I spend a lot on food eating at restaurants every day.

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.
