So, it is no surprise that I am not the only person living full-time in an RV, not even close.
Yet it may surprise some people to learn that I have neighbours in my Eastern Home. Yep, I have counted two other RV units in the industrial area that I work and live in.
The first is around the corner from where I work, so they are my neighbour during the workweek.
The other is located along the stretch of street that borders the storm drain pond that I park at during the weekends.
I recognize the second one as being one of the regular RV’s that used to park in Western Home.
I suppose that answers the question if people can park in Western Home again anytime soon.
I am not bothered to see other people living in RV’s as there are many different reasons for people to do so.
With the turbulent economic times that we are in, I surmise we may see more people doing so for economic reasons.
The hardest thing to see is to see a family living in a minivan, I have seen a few.
I am still not sure what the future will hold, or when the economy will get back on track but the underlying message is that it won’t get back on track until people start spending (stupidly) again.
So, the fiscal recovery is waiting for people who have been the hardest hit to spend money they don’t have, and/or can’t afford to spend, to just go and waste it?
Just go be a cash sprinkler again and everything will be fine? That’s your plan?
That would put people in a further bad place and shove more people out of their houses and into RV’s because they would have lost their houses.
I say spend what you have to and PAY OFF your debt and then build up your own savings, as in cash in the bank that you don’t touch.
Or, start looking for a nice RV that you can live in, as you may be my neighbour and not by your own choice, but by circumstance.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
