Click the pics before it snows, or your fingers will get cold.
I was too busy today to take any pictures today, so these are just leftovers.
I didn't have much time for my blog today since I was busy with my family and putting the Arctic Fox back together so it's livable. But since it's supposed to rain and possibly snow tomorrow... Yes, you heard right, 90° today, and snow is predicted for tomorrow afternoon in Denver, so that should give me plenty of time to write about my travels in the bronco.
I learned a lot spending six months in the bronco, and I think the most interesting thing I learned about myself is I don't need a lot of space to live in. I don't need to be able to walk to get to the kitchen or the bedroom; it doesn't bother me that I can reach all of those things by taking a step or two. I thought I would miss walking around in the camper, but actually, I didn't; if I wanted to walk, I can walk outside.
I've also learned to live with a tiny little refrigerator. I thought it would be more of a problem than it turned out to be. It mostly requires shopping more often, but I'm usually pretty close to a grocery store. After all, I'm not doing this to live close to nature; I was doing that living in my house. I'm not on vacation; I'm not on R&R, AWOL, a sabbatical, adventure, or furlough. I want to live a normal life like everyone else except in a house with wheels.
The lack of storage is a problem, but I think it points to the fact that I have too much STUFF, not that I don't have a place to put it. If I look at the Arctic Fox and all the stuff in it and remember back when I first started full-timing and thinking that I was only taking what I needed to survive, and a 30-foot trailer was the smallest possible space I could live in... I feel like a fool.
I don't use or need probably 90% of what's in the Arctic Fox. I'm carrying stuff around because I might miss it when it's gone. I thought I learned my lesson about too much stuff when I sold my home and moved into the Arctic Fox, but that was only the start of finding out what was important.... To be continued.
