So I am back in the hospital again. I am currently on day 5 and they are not entirely sure what route they want to go. It is looking like the front half of the right foot has to go and both calves need surgery, but today’s MRI results will be the deciding factor. The push now is to have the camper fit for my return.Continue reading Another Push
The mother ship has landed. Our new tiny house has been planted in Henry County, Kentucky. We have named it Serenity after my favorite TV series Firefly & follow up movie Serenity. Its the theme song to both that made me suggest her name. You can burn the land, you can boil the see, but you can’t take the sky from me. That is essentially what Citizen’s Union Bank did to us. The foreclosure was the burning of our land and boiling of our sea, but they can not take our sky, our freedom away.
We thought we found our new tiny house / camper. There was some confusion and the seller offered it to someone else. Then this one fell into our lap. Same general price, much larger, much nicer. Hopefully this one wont get away from us.

Citizens Union Bank took our farm and proper because I needed a year off work after the last amputation. A different type of financing bought us our new tiny house / camper. It is called social equity. Essentially, friends cofunded our new tiny house via our GoFundMe Campaign. While each is a fine person, I do not think they would have done so for a total stranger. I think folk were happy to help us in our time of need because they have seen us help others in their time of need.Continue reading Our New Camper / Tiny House

My list exceeded thirty.Continue reading No room at the Inn
If you have looked into tiny home or camper / RV living, you probably already know various states, counties, and municipalities have enacted various laws to discourage or eliminate the minimalist lifestyle. What you might not know is the federal government is getting in on the insanity. Let me introduce you to their latest weapon: FR–5877–P–01 Manufactured Home Procedural and Enforcement Regulations; Revision of Exemption for Recreational VehiclesContinue reading War on Travelers – FR–5877–P–01
Citizen’s Union Bank sold our farm, but we are stilling staying in the home. We still have no place to go and we are not sure how much time we have before we are enforceable evicted. However long that is, we are trying to make the most of it. It seems most likely we will be purchasing a camper trailer at some point, but might have to live in a relative’s basement. Not a great idea for someone who can barely walk, let alone climb stairs. But you do what you have to do to survive.Continue reading Are we really doing this?
