Developers are still in the process of building these gray houses you see across the street, I refer to them as the houses with no yards. I don't think I've ever seen a single-family house with as little property as these houses are sitting on.
When I left Denver last fall they were just finishing up the road to get to these houses. Now almost all these houses have been sold and are occupied.
I sure wish it was a normal summer here in Denver where I could relax most of the time and I didn't have to do anything except what I wanted to do. I would've gone some places and done some things by now and would probably be thinking about heading for the high lonesome pretty soon. But with an eye doctor's appointment Thursday and my camper situation in limbo, I haven't been in the mood to do much of anything other than relaxing and thinking about all the things I need to be doing to smooth out my life again.
As you may have figured out, I'm not too fond of schedules, I don't like appointments, and I wouldn't say I like waiting for other people to do things because all of that takes away MY freedom to do what and when I want, because freedom and a stress free life, is the cornerstone of my full-timing lifestyle.
But sometimes, I have to deal with a temporary loss of freedom like getting new glasses or getting another RV, both of which are more important than a brief loss of my freedom.
But summer is coming up, and I can hear the call of the High Country, with her crystal clear lakes, the moaning of the pine trees when the wind is blowing, and the mountain peaks so high the snow lasts all year. But it looks like I won't be going anywhere for a while. I'm emptying out the bronco to get it ready to sell, so I can't go anywhere in it. The bronco blocks in the Arctic Fox, so it can't go anywhere with that either; all I can do is wait for the Lance 825 to show up so I can get it on the back of the truck and start loading stuff in it that I will need to travel.
I am so looking forward to spending the coming winter in the Lance. I'll be able to go to the same places the bronco went, with the same mobility and stress-free travel that the bronco gave me, but with oh so much more comfort compared to dealing with the eccentricities of the bronco.
I know properties expensive around here, but the size of these lots is ridiculous, there's really no place for their kids to play except in the street.
I'll go out on a limb here and say it might be trash pickup day. Developers build houses for every taste. These houses are built for folks that don't care about the land, they just want a big house, and these are around 4000 square feet.
I'm the opposite, I could live in a one room log cabin as long as I had at least 40 acres around me; which explains why every house I bought after moving to Colorado bordered the national forest, but I guess that was pretty obvious considering my love of boondocking. Like I've said in the past; if RV parks were free, and boondocking was $30 a night... I would still boondock.
You might think that maybe these houses have a big backyard, but you would be wrong. You might also think that just because they have a yard smaller than an RV campsite, they must be pretty affordable, but you would be wrong again, these houses start at $750,000. Shocking? I'll say, but almost all of them are sold .
When I was walking down the street taking pictures of these houses an old, song came to mind named; little boxes
This is what I meant about the Arctic Fox being blocked in so I can't use it. I want to keep the bronco in this highly visible location so folks walking, and driving by will be able to see the "for sale" signs I'm going to put on it as soon as I get it ready to sell.
