I’m getting used to this thing called van dwelling. Every day, more and more. I love the freedom of it. I love the frugal-ness of it. I love having my home with me where ever l go.
So far l have discovered a tank of gas (okay two, since l have duel tanks for a total of 28 Gallons-about 300 miles worth – city driving) it lasts two weeks, that includes all my trips to work, outing with friends, visits to my Grandpa in the hospital, etc... I only need to dump my black tank once every two weeks ($11.50 each time), same thing with laundry, l do it once every two weeks ($8.50).
I don’t have to pay rent at the end of the month. I have unlimited free Wi-Fi available to me at various locations, some of them l don’t even need to leave my van (my favorites are Lowes, Marriott Hotel, of course the Library, any McDonalds – all of these are so convenient to me l don’t need to look elsewhere) I also have 5GB on my cell phone available to me, but l have only used 1GB a month.
No one at work knows that l van dwell, l park in a different parking lot and avoid leaving or entering the same time as other staff members. Why? I don’t want to answer their questions as to why l drive a campervan, which could lead to "What?? You live in your van??"
My cats have adapted very well to life on the road.
My friends are adapting very well to having a friend who doesn’t comply with society standards. :-)
