Adventures in Yuma...

So as the Snowbirds exodus from the warm or soon to be hot desert back to the North, I am still loving the warm temperatures.  A friend and I returned to the Q Casino in Yuma to enjoy the benefits of a city, the great bathrooms casinos offer and an opportunity to watch basketball games inside a luxurious air conditioned building....which included some dancing to the band on Friday night. Great excersize plan aye! Yesterday, I attended an old fashioned church service at the Faith Baptist Church.  Then I did some exploring off Algadones Road.  I didn't know anything about boondocking on Indian Reservation land, though I will talk to nearly anyone and ask questions. How beautiful a campsite I found within walking distance to the casino and to free showers and bathrooms.  Incredible. I forgot that the bball games were still going on, and I moved to the nature filled campsite in the afternoon.  Oops my buddy didn't join me but I managed to get a tour of the area ffom a new neighbo

Why Did I Choose Vandwelling?

Many times I am asked why I chose to live in my van.  The truth is, I have wanted to travel and have adventures since I was very young listening to my older sister read books to me.  We would often go to the local library which was a short bike ride away to pick out books.  She read all the Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn books to me - we even plotted a runaway complete with bandanas tied to a pole when I was around 5 years old.  I am a traveler.  A nomad.  An artist.  I am social.  I love to meet people.  To learn as much as I can about other cultures is also something I learned when young.  My parents brought home lost people to stay off and on.  Koko was a Japanese girl who didn't speak English when she arrived at our house and spent the better part of a year or more.  Radd was a German history buff and we endured the jokes and comments at school when he was seen wearing German military clothing and driving a VW Thing painted in historic German military style... When I got out on my own

K.I.S.S. personal update of sorts ... from the Library!

It certainly has been a long time since I've been in a library.  I miss working on my blog on a real computer! that might be hard to believe since I'm always talking about how I only have a tiny android phone and a 7"tablet.  It is nice to not need much power and too keep things small and relatively simple....but - stuff happens and changes take place. Today, I was feeling a little woozy and was needing to use the bathroom quite a bit this morning....(I know TMI!)  but hey, reality check.  My friend and travel buddy, NC Greg texted that he was at a kewl library that was very comfortable.  It seemed like a good idea to get out of Vantucket for a little while and maybe get a little computer work done and hey libraries often have nice bathrooms!    It is a bit easier to work on a larger screen and there are just some things one cannot do on a tablet these days.  Things like manipulate the pages or format of the computer pages on my blog.  Content can be typed easily on ei

K.I.S.S. Office

My KISS office in the Slabs... i have been working on a guest post article on stoves for Bob Wells od That is primarily why you havent heard much from me this week.  I am also pretty much healing mentally and emotionally while walking and enjoying this tiny community. Another VanDweller friend came to join our tiny RTR buddies campsite so visiting and finally getting to the infamous hot springs takes time.  Heck it takes time to have a live that creates stories to tell so bear with us bloggers please.  I certainly have not forgotten anyone.
