I did a little packing today to get ready for my upcoming camping trip this weekend, and fortunately the weather cooperated by being a little bit cooler and slightly overcast so it was much more comfortable to work outside.
I've sold five of the nine guns I put on GunBroker which is pretty good I guess, but the five I've sold were the most inexpensive guns I had for sale. Maybe that's just the way it's going to be. Luckily I don't have to sell everything because I'm just selling them to have less things to worry about in life so if they don't sell now I'll try again later. But in the next few weeks I'm probably going to be spending some time in the mountains and since communication with the outside world will be sporadic at best I don't think I will put any more of my guns on GunBroker until I'm sure I will have the ability to communicate with potential buyers more reliably.
I'm still gathering information on wintering in the South and folks have been very helpful with their suggestions. I didn't realize that it was going to be so complicated or that I would make it so complicated, I'm not sure which.
I'm looking forward to the possibility of staying in a different part of the country this winter if possible. I don't want to get into a rut of going to the same places and doing the same things every year, and being able to enjoy traveling in the South would be a big change from the arid areas and deserts that I usually haunt.
But the key words in that sentence are "enjoy traveling" and if I have to worry about having a place to stay or paying outrageous prices to stay, there's not going to be much enjoyment in my traveling. I know I'm going to have to pony up mucho dinero to travel in the South, and I know I'm going to have to swallow my boondocking pride and stay in RV parks a lot of the time because of the limited boondocking opportunities. But I'm willing to deal with that, at least this once, if for no other reason than to say "I tried".
