Something to Consider

In today's economy, people are reported to be living in tents and I can't help but ask myself why. RV parks are a simple way to live. I've lived in one with hubby for nine years now and I wouldn't live anywhere else. It's so easy to find one that reflects your personality. The one I live in is set in a forest yet only five minutes from the freeway. There are all sorts of wildlife within walking distance, and Wal Mart is only a ten minute drive. Some have fishing, some have utilities included with the rent, which is usually less than half the price of apartment rent. There are no land taxes, no school taxes and mail pickup is usually at the front office. I am in the process of building up my inventory of hand-painted tshirts and will soon add etched mirrors and glassware. I will be selling these online as well as locally. At the age of 53 I have simplified my life drastically and wouldn't want to live any other way. I enjoy the fresh country air and go fishing most mornings, which has been a childhood fantasy of mine.
