Stockpiling Again.

I am stockpiling again, for the future that may come . . . don’t worry, no it is not weapons and ammo, it is food. I am stockpiling canned and dry goods once more.

It is more of a peace of mind than anything else. Who knows what can happen and I may try to rotate the stock as it were, and start to eat down on that cache of food.

For now it is just a bit of insurance and security in case this inflation does turn hyper. 

All in all, other than that it was an ordinary week. One that saw me getting back into the grove of things.

I will say that I am seeing more and more people out there living in RVs and vans. That means both in Western Home and here in my Eastern Home (where I work).

One can only hope that it is out of a positive reason such as a vacation or choosing to live cheaply rather than no other options. 

Once again, we shall see what the future holds.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!

A Settling In Staycation

So I had a four day weekend last week! I had both Canada Day (Thursday) and the Friday as well!  It all started well with me getting my second vaccination shot on Wednesday after work.

That knocked me on my butt for Thursday and I had to rest to recover Friday. So, that left Saturday to get to work to settle in to Wanda and do a bit of cleaning. 

The weekend itself was really, really hot, so I couldn’t even think of closing up the house to go to sleep until after 10pm each night. 

Again, as with all things I found a way to adapt and alter what I do in order to meet and beat any challenge, heat included.  

When I got around to cleaning the trailer and finding a home for what I decided to keep with me in Wanda, it didn’t take all that long, as Kim and I had done a good job cleaning not that long ago. 

I didn’t have all that much stuff with me, as I was able to get a good deal on a storage locker (5 foot x 5 foot) that I have put the stuff that I want to have but don’t  want to carry with me all the time. 

It is across the city from where I work, but it was a good deal and the place looked secure and stable.

The storage locker is an extra cost, but it is a wise one, as the extra weight is not good for the truck or trailer.

Anyways as a result of this cleaning this is what Wanda looked like now.

Yes that is a new duvet cover.

Things are looking up and I am settling back into my routine of living in Wanda . . . just with less stuff in and around me. 

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!

Back In The Saddle Again

So, I am once again single and living in Wanda as I work towards my goal of financial independence and home ownership. 

Things with Kim didn’t work out and so this past Sunday (yesterday at the time of publication) we ended things and I moved out of her place.

That is all that I will say about that as I don’t gossip, nor do I hate or begrudge her anything, it simply didn’t work out. 

So, here I find myself looking around my home on wheels and taking stock of what I have and what I need, both in the literal and philosophical sense.

I don’t have specific savings targets or other exact goals, just a general sense to trudge onwards and build up my savings to the point that I can buy something (house and/or land) and be okay on it.

I still feel a bit lost with all that has happened, but I just know that I have to build my savings and work towards my goals of home ownership and financial independence.

We shall see how things go and what happens. 

For now I will be doing this blog once a week until things get more exciting in my life.
