Hello hello!

Hi guys and gals.  If you are reading this, thanks for either being subscribed to the blog or just being interested enough to check in once in a while.

I’m still sleeping in my van every night except when I am house sitting.  After 4 years of living in a van I am finally getting used to “winter” sleeping.   I DO live in Southern California though so take that statement with a grain of salt.  Still, I’m pleased that I can be comfortable at lower temperatures.  It gets into the low 40s at night.  I have a couple of great sleeping bags (crucial!) and my new van has a working heater so I can warm up in the morning.

I haven’t bought a butane cooker yet.  I might after the holidays.  I will have to overcome my reluctance to be seen in public using it.

I go to a new gym.  It is so clean and new looking!  It’s big too so I feel like no one is paying attention to me and if I don’t feel like working out, I don’t have to.  I can just take my shower.  It’s strange.  I’m only paying a few more dollars a month but this gym is so much better.  They give you a couple of towels to use too, and then you turn them in to be washed!  Such luxury!  No more drying wet towels in the van!  Yay!  It’s the little things sometimes.

Gas prices have been pretty low so I have been driving a little more without worry.  The van still needs a few repairs.  I just work on it as I have the money.

I’ve been working and it’s been fine.  Not perfect, but nothing ever is.  I haven’t lost any clients and sometimes I get a new one for house or dog sitting.

I guess that’s it.  What’s happening with YOU?  Anyone going to start van living soon?

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.
