A Story Of Freedom

This is so exciting, I just watched a mobile living documentary about freedom. It was wonderful. Many of the people I saw on it are people that I know from Bob Wells Cheap RV Living Blog. Here is the link to the  Michael Tubbs  production of

Without Bound - Perspectives on Mobile Living (Documentary)

Update about Serenity, I just got a call last night, my little camper is ready to go home. Next  week I will hitch up my original camper, Little Sanitee and take her in to trade for all the work and parts.

Closer to my hearts desire

I am very happy. I just made an even trade for work to be done on Serenity. I traded the original Little Sanitee. Bearings packed, Ubolts and leaf springy things flipped so she rides higher. Brakes and drums and all the stuff that goes with them. New wedding cake vintage look lights, door handle, brake controller and wiring. You'll be seeing me comin' round the mountains when I come.
An artist friend of mine PleinAirJourney.COM set off on his journey last year. He takes the most incredible pictures that encourages me even more to pursue my own journey.



Now, I do realize most of my readers are experienced travelers. Most are boon dockers at heart and don't need any instructions. This for the few people out there that don't know how to make a campfire.


1. Split dead limb into fragments and shave one fragment into slivers.
2. Bandage left thumb.
3. Chop other fragments into smaller fragments.
4. Bandage left foot.
5. Make a structure of slivers (including those embedded in the hand).
6. Light match.
7. Light match.
8. Repeat “I’m a Happy Camper” and light match.
9. Apply match to slivers, add wood fragments, and blow gently into base of flames.
10. Apply burn ointment to nose.
11. When fire is burning, collect more wood.
12. When fire is burning well, add all remaining firewood.
13. After thunderstorm has passed, repeat the above steps.
