Loving life

10:54am:
Being a street person
I've been living in an RV for since February 2003. Except for the two years after my big accident in 2014, that would be 15 years, on-the-road!

I love this life. Moving around as I do is something that I've enjoyed from the very first day. It's a challenge for me, and I seem to be particularly suited for this life.

It's not that I cannot afford to live in an apartment or RV park. Twayler my 29-foot trailer waits for me at Lone Wolf Colony RV Park in Apple Valley, California.  It's just that I love this vagabonding life.

Poor people
I live like the King of Vagabonders. Scampy is comfortable. She has a heater and all the solar electric power needed. If something breaks, I have it fixed.

Scampy is comfortable too. I love to be comfortable and will not camp where the street is not level unless I level Scampy out.

In my travels, I see people living in ancient RVs. How do they do that? How do they afford gasoline to drive those 7 miles per gallon motorhomes? How do these people afford maintenance on these old rigs?

  1. “How do these people afford maintenance on these old rigs?“

    How? Easy, our welfare system is so generous that work has become optional, if a person is so inclined. It’s hard to find a fast food place that’s not hiring. But why work if you don’t have too?

    They simply feed at the taxpayer trough. SS Disability? SNAP? Taxpayer provided housing?

    Visit the Slabs and you will find hundreds of people who are working the system for all its worth.

    We are currently broke down in Mexico... awaiting parts!

    1. Hi Kevin,

      You may be sensitive to your RV being described as ancient.

      Have you found that when attempting to stay at an RV Park in the United States, that you are refused entrance?

    2. No, not sensitive at all George!

      We have never been turned down because we don't stay in RV Parks in the US.

  4. "Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century" by Jessica Bruder is an interesting read about thousands of people living in RVs, cars, and Vans.

    1. Hi Sondra,

      It's not a superiority complex.

      My way of life living on-the-road is without doubt a superior one compared to most of the other RVers living on-the-road. I have more $dough$ than most RVers living on-the-road.

      Just a fact.

    1. Hi Pete,

      That's because your Lazy Daze is ageless! Hasn't Lazy Daze kept the model/style the same for many years?
