Good morning. Making good progress there TA.

I grill outside. They say the char can cause cancer, IDK. I've been eating char most of my 70 years and like it. Anymore, I think everything causes cancer.

I've heard gunfire before but never had anyone firing on my camp. Anyone hurt?

Law enforcement was called. I was out checking in campers when the bullets started whizzing overhead. Over a hundred people in camp, and one eye witness to the shooter. I hope they catch the person.      ~crofter

Hi Everyone...

You will not believe this, but it is true . . . I was just this morning taking more things downstairs to the computer room to put on the shelf for other people to take.. that's how it happens to give things away in this apartment building.. and the elevator door opened and there stood the lady who was given the HOWA van! She was here to get some things she left with another apartment dweller. Of course I knew her from before she left this town... I'm not the one who told her about the van - she was watching Bob's videos on her own. I knew her from when she was hosting crafting events here last year... I think it was. So I got to see the HOWA van and she looked at mine. We are going in different directions right now but I hope to see her again on down the road.

Anyhow, food (Roamer asked) - I'm not eating out much... trying to conserve on expenditures. I bought some Lean Cuisine frozen dinners and eat one each day. Breakfast and lunch are snacks from Nutrisystem. The only thing I buy daily is an Americano from a coffee kiosk downtown... I get that each morning to have with my Nutrisystem chocolate muffin that I can get in the pharmacy section of Walmart. I very rarely feel inspired to cook anything. If I get hungry I'll warm up a bag of frozen vegetables and that helps a lot.

Lately instead of going to Walmart or Cabelas I've been sleeping in the parking lot of my apartment building. It is nice, flat, and quiet. At this point I don't even care if people see me there and complain because what are they going to do - evict me? My rent is paid up and I gave notice to be out on the 20th. I no longer have a bed in the apartment.

I thought you weren't going to believe me so when she got back from visiting her friend, I took pictures.

I didn't know she had applied for the van until I saw the livestream video last week...!!!

Well if you see her in your camping travels be sure to invite her over for a meal. You know for sure she will be appreciating a home cooked meal.


RE: Good morning - travelaround - 09-06-2019

Hmmm... she probably cooks better than I do. It looks like she's set up for anything. And I'm trying to avoid meals... kind of hard when so many of my friends here want to eat out with me before I leave town.

I don't cook inside or outside of my van. I don't see much need for it. I may do some small scale cooking later on after I get used to living in my van for a while. Maybe, like warming up veggies or heating water for tea. My needs are minimal. I've been dieting. I bought a Hot Logic Mini (12v) to warm up Lean Cuisine frozen dinners... but I haven't used it yet.

I recently bought a dresser that I'd like to transform into a kitchen area... but that's so far down the line I haven't done anything to it yet. Mainly my time right now is consumed with emptying my apartment.
Wabbit huntin.. all dat tequila they been guzzling turns them into wabbit killers. They are pretty bad shots by that point so it takes a lot of ammunition to get one.


RE: Good morning - RoamerRV428 - 09-07-2019

TA cool pics Smile HOWA van winner in your apartment....small world for sure Smile

I so hear ya on not wanting to cook any more. That is why my meals are meat and 1 side...only 1 side for hubby cause he wants it, lol, if he didn't I wouldn't even be cooking that. I was never a kitchen gal. I could live off the grill and the microwave and be done with it.

Ahhh, ya know once you are out of town you have your own schedule to follow with those obligations and goodbye meals eaten out and all Smile coming soon at ya!



Good morning
I had the hike from hell. It was way more up hill into the mountain etc. Sun was the killer. No good breeze on trail. Open trails thru meadows then into some forest and into the open sun again. Near 90 on this hike and I fizzled on it. Got 'er done but the heat was brutal for me for some reason on this hike, took me down Smile So I know to be sure we do easier hikes til the weather breaks and cools, then I will go climb any mountain. Such a short hike almost took this old gal down....I love heat but not hiking in it Smile

easy day
this and that
nothing major


RE: Good morning - Dean and Buster - 09-07-2019

More lawn mowing and cutting down another tree for the man's fireplace. This is my own physical therapy for my heart that is falling apart but I am going to keep pushing forward .
