I just wanted to finish up some trains of thought from my last post. I'll be brief and hopefully the next post that I am working on at present will be a bit longer and a bit more in depth, answering a number of questions relating to my theories of living in a house on wheels or leaving a smaller footprint in the world in which we live.
Do I like how I am presently living? Did I make the right decision to down size and live in an RV? For the most part. Only time will tell if I did in fact make the right choice. At the time I needed to make a decision rather quickly and my choice's were living with room mates or looking for an apartment. I felt I needed a brake from living with others for a while and there was no way I could afford an apartment of my own. Now I have privacy at an affordable price living in the forest with deer walking by my door within a fairly close commute to the city.
Would I like to move and will I go nuts if I don't? Hmmm... well, I think I'm about as sane as anybody else for what that's worth. I will say I do go a bit stir crazy when I've been cooped up out of the rain for days or weeks on end. But I think that would probably happen in an apartment or house just as easily. When that happens I go forth and look for something out side of my little world to occupy my self with. Maybe I should break down and buy a TV... I'll have to think on that one. I think if I am able to build a tiny house custom made to my specifications I would like living where I am a whole lot more than I do. If I can figure out a way to increase my income I would like where I am a whole lot more. So it's not necessarily where I am but my particular circumstances that may need to change. If I were to move I would probably get rid of the trailer and look for a cap/canopy for my pickup truck and embark on a mega road trip to see more of this great big country of ours. This does appeal to me quite a lot. I do get the urge to go a wandering from time to time. Where would I go and what would I do when I get there? Don't know. It would certainly be a whole lot easier if I could make it work right where I am, but as I said before... Only time will tell.
