So here I am settling down to a long learning experience doing this van living thing. My portable heater just came in today. The solar panel (15 watts) came in 2 days ago. Of course, I still need a bunch of things to make the solar setup even work inside the van.
But life is ever changing and one thing this life has taught me is to be flexible in dealing with life's curve balls.
Because of family obligations, I may not be able to continue my van adventures for a while.
The money I was hoping to save up is now instead going to support my parents. (Dad just lost his benefit) So being that I am gonna support 2 households anyway, mine and my parents', it doesn't make sense to continue living in the van when I can move in with them for a while. (I am paying for it, I might as well partake in the benefits of a stick and brick once again) I'll be occupying my old room there from when I visited them in the past.
In this economic times of uncertainty, might as well consolidate the 2 and become one for a while till I can get more income going in.
Well, that's the latest but that ain't gonna come about till next year still.
So I got a month to enjoy my van... and this great experiment. Although the solar setup may have to wait now that things have changed somewhat... What's the use of having it if I am gonna abandon the project thirty days from now.... I may also have to leave the van in storage because my folks live overseas.
Plus side... I get to go to the land of my origin again and catch up with everyone there. And be with my folks. So it's still a good thing....
The independent living van experiment will be put on hold when that time comes...
Till then.... Let's live it up!
