Roses are red, violets are blue, inside the bronco there's no room for two.
My first night back in Quartzsite. It wasn't much of a sunset, but I was glad to have any clouds at all. There's no post this afternoon, just pictures of the inside of the bronco, I was too relaxed, and enjoying the peace and quiet to write anything.
Stepping into the bronco is the first part of my security system. Any criminal with bad knees that wants to get into the bronco is in big trouble. The steps are narrow and steep and no one with bad knees could possibly make it past the first two. And if they are able to get back down the steps to the ground again, they won't be able to hobble very far.
These are pictures of the inside of the bronco while I'm living in it. Taking these pictures forced me to throw away some things I apparently didn't need, and find places to store things that I normally leave sitting around. On the left side of the aisle is a Mr. heater, Little Buddy Heater, that I plan on trying out when it gets cold enough to need it. I'm a firm believer in other means of heating besides the factory furnace.
Preparing to take all these pictures required a lot of effort on my part, and seriously cut into my relaxing time. Fortunately Quartzsite is a good place to relax so I will probably be able to catch up on my lost relaxing time in a few days.
I didn't straighten up anything in this picture, this is the way it normally looks when I'm living in it. On the close-up pictures of different areas I straightened them up somewhat so it was easier to tell how I'm really living.
Turning around and looking back out the door. You can see on the left what used to be a shower but I turned that into storage. On the right you can see my little refrigerator. When I'm camped a lot of stuff ends up on that flat area on the right, but when I have to put the top down everything has to come off of the flat area because the roof lays on it.
This is what used to be the shower, I felt like I no longer needed a shower in the bronco even though all of my relatives vehemently disagreed.
But storage is more important to me and this area gives me a lot more storage space. Normally it's not this neat There's usually stuff that I don't know what to do with, just thrown in here when I'm traveling.
I straightened things up before I took a picture of the kitchen, so this is not what it looks like what I'm normally living in the bronco. What little counter-space there is usually has stuff sitting on it. As you can see there's no room to do any serious cooking in this kitchen, it's mostly things like soup getting warmed up, or an egg getting fried. And even if I had more counter-space I wouldn't have room to store all of the cooking ingredients a normal cook would have.
I also straightened up what passes for a sofa. Normally there is a table and cushions for two people to sit on in this spot, but I made it more of a lounging area for myself, and usually there's various computer wires laying all over because this is where everything electric gets recharged. Phone, computers, MiFi, headphones, AAA batteries, trackball, camera, electric drill, if it's got batteries this is where it usually ends up.
And lastly my bedroom. I moved the down comforter out of the picture, because I only use it when it's cold, and it hasn't been cold enough on this trip to use it yet. But it does get down into the fifties at night so I do need the one blanket you see. Also the bed needs to be made up, and the pillow removed, because when the broncos top comes down it lays on top of the bed
So that's all there is, and there's not much of it. But thanks to Don for requesting pictures of the inside of the bronco, it got me out of coming up with something to write about today.
On one of my earliest blog posts, when I first moved out of my house and became a full-timer, I took some measurements and determined that my 30 foot Arctic Fox 5th wheel that I was moving into was smaller than my homes master bath. Well now I can say that the bronco is smaller than the Arctic Fox's living room. I guess my future next logical step would be full-timing on my little Beta 250 motorcycle.
