Van Troubles

I had to replace my van’s radiator this weekend.

Upcoming, I also need to replace the water pump and the cv joints.

Hope some money falls from heaven soon.  Ha!

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.

    I had a feeling. Did you leave all your stuff in the van while having it fixed? Kinda makes it complicated, because without the van there’s nowhere to sleep. I figure that a sleeping bad and such in the van would look suspicous. Come to think of it, what to you do when you drive around other people? Surely they ask questions?

      You had a feeling Ryu? That’s neat! 🙂

      I had a friend work on my van. He doesn’t know my situation but he didn’t ask any questions. He probably thinks I nap in my van or something…I don’t know. No one has ever asked me if I live in my van. I think I look pretty normal so they just wouldn’t never expect it.

  2. As huge as LA is, maybe you can pick up a part time job or a couple of part time jobs to fatten up your emergency savings again. I had to put about $1200 into my old truck a couple of months ago. Ouch! That’s why I did my own spark plug and wire replacement instead of paying an additional $480 to the mechanic.

    Praying for you, Maureen.

    Thanks for the prayers MG! I think they are working!

    You are right. I need to get more work whether I like it or not. I can’t live on love! 🙂
