Last night I slept in the back of my truck.
Before anyone start to offer me a free room... NO the bank didn't take my home back (they can't take what is MINE). I didn't run out of money, I have pensions coming in, can't be more secure. Was not through out of my household either.
It was a deliberate test. The truck was parked just beside the home with my comfortable bed and running water and toilet. I know insane right?
It's all part of the Richard v2.0, I want to do more fun activities. Specifically, hiking and biking. By having my truck available to sleep in, it really open doors that were so more complicate to get to.
I have a travel trailer, but when you move with this, you need a camping, electricity, water, dumb station (for you know, all the dumps). You have to hook up, set up. You have to pay for more gas (it's heavy to pull), camping fees. After driving a day with it, I'm beat. You are just not that free!
So having a room that can be hidden in plain sight, that I can drive anywhere, park, get the bike out, the running shoes on, and start right away a new adventure, will be a huge improvement. So in a way, I'm simplifying and go stealthy.
Yesterday I bought a sheet of plywood, cut it so it fit in my truck's box, got the mattress from my trailer and was all set for the night.
How did I slept? Not too bad, the mattress need to be replace, hey I was a princess in a previous life. It was a little hot but not too bad, considering.
So next week, I'll be building up the truck for a little more convenience, I'll post all about it.
