FULL TIMING is for the BIRDS...

mandolin Dave, that is deep. I am usually alone; however, I learned from a friend once that it is better to be single than wish you were. Relations are important but it is the quality of those relationships that matter. I find that, for me, God first, then reach out to others. Get to know them and interact with them. In the moments you learn who is quality. There are two kinds of people IMO, growth facilitators and takers. I want to be the former and hang out with them as well. The fact that you know how to work the land is amazing. You could set up something like a teacher friend of mine who provides a home to a guy in exchange for working on her small farm. It frees her up to do other things. You might do the same then work with others on short term missions, etc helping others learn to farm! You just never know.

We bought our trailer on the cusp of New Year's just before the winter storms hit, and parked in a trailer court through a bitter Iowan winter. Constant snow, ice, wind, and temps reaching well below -10. (-60 windchill anyone?)

Can't say it was very fun at the time, but curling up with some blankets, slippers and 2-3 space heaters made it work out fine. We later found in spring, the last "owners" did not know the meaning of maintenance, leaky fantastic fan poured some rainwater onto us while we slept.

Summer has been extremely humid, constant rain or in the 90's so far, and it's been good. All in one spot while we pay her off.

Our most... memorable, let's say... camping and airstream experiences thus far have been suffering at the hands of mother nature!!! But it's all worth it.

Even living in a 'brick' house there will be discomfort when things go really 'winter' mode.. so... did you manage to keep all the AS items from freezing?

We stayed winterized, replaced our toilet with a composting toilet, and did not use our piping at all! Being new rvers, we didn't want to destroy our baby before we had a chance to get to know her!
