Today marks the end of my second week of self isolating, and so far It must be working okay since I haven't come down with the sickness....Yet. My Internet still works so I have plenty of entertainment. There's lots of desert to walk in whenever I feel like it. There's mountains I could climb if I felt extra special stupid that day. And I've become so good at self isolating, I don't even talk to myself anymore.
In fact the only downside to my life at the moment is illegally boondocking at the LTVA because there's no one here to sign me up for two more weeks. On the other hand you could say that since there's no one here to sign me up, there doesn't appear to be anyone here to catch me breaking the law. But I did get a phone number for the local BLM office so I'll call them tomorrow and try to find out what's going on with the LTVA's.
Yesterday Verizon sent me a free 15 gig bundle of data that I can use for one month with no strings attached, and I didn't even have to ask. There was a time when that would've been the best thing that happened to me for the entire month. But now even though I appreciate the gesture it doesn't really benefit me because I already have true unlimited Internet on my Verizon jetpack MiFi which provides all the Internet I want for a flat 70 bucks a month. I guess they felt sorry for all of us isolated folks who are more dependent on the Internet now than ever.
My food is holding up well since stocking up about two weeks ago so I figure I can go at least another two weeks without having to visit a grocery store. But just like a few days ago when I had to go to Walmart to get some more allergy nose spray I assume there will be little things that I need to buy until I get used to this "stocking up" routine.
One good thing that's happened with this "isolating" and "stocking up" is I've stopped eating out at restaurants completely, and I'm eating less at home. The eating less at home is partially because I didn't stock up on any snack foods, I'm paying more attention to what I'm eating than I normally would, and I worry a lot which tends to kill my appetite, and thanks to those three things I've lost 8 pounds already without even trying.
My temporary home at La Posa South LTVA about 200 yards from the dump station and the water fill.
I like the old classic trailers, I think they have a lot of personality.
