Learning the Steps

Learning and more learning

What an interesting rollercoaster of a week! I left Angela's driveway a little over a week ago and felt no qualms sitting in the Walmart parking lot that night.

Learning the Steps, Planning & Preparations

Day Four

Well, it's official! I'm apartment-free and all my belongings are in the RV.

Cleaning out

Well, I did say that the posts would likely be scattered. I've been going through my drawers and cabinets trying to figure out what I'll really want to bring with me. Stacks of blankets?
