Just a Quick Update
First and foremost, I just wanted to thank all of you for your support and encouragement. I am overwhelmed with emotions at y'all support. (Wow, decent humans do exist!)
I'm only up this early because the new hotel said they served breakfast. Dry cereal, muffins and Starbucks "rain-forest" coffee, is not my idea of breakfast.
Well, it's been a few interesting days since I was, well, thrown out of my living situation. I had to move hotels because a guy was stabbed right below my hotel window and they were going to jack the room rate to over double to extend my stay by a night or two, from $33 a night plus tax, to $71 a night. I'm like AYFKM? (Are You Fucking Kidding Me?)
These people would not know customer service if it bit them on the ass. (Does anyone know what is customer service anymore?) At least the internet at this new hotel is decent and no where near as buggy as the last place. (Like pulling teeth to get on line.)
It's been a while since I've really had to drive a lot around Dallas, and I'm rather shocked at the amount of homeless people living under bridges, behind Walmart's and such.
The plan as it is, is to check out of here by 11am and then go do laundry at my friend's apartment complex and wait till she gets off work so we can go to her storage unit south of Dallas, and then go pick up a tent and some camping supplies. I'll stay the night in my truck in her parking lot.
Then Friday morning access my needs and then go get what ever basic supplies I need, fill up with gas and head on out on this new adventure.
Once I get settled out there, and get connected to their wifi, I'll update everyone and hopefully have a lot of pictures of the place to share. I'm kind of looking forward to the Eco-sustainable living and blogging about it. I'm thinking my crop(s) will be potatoes and carrots. Maybe an apple tree to two?
Obviously I'm going to have to figure out if any of these will actually grow out there. I have no clue what the soil is like, and will have to study up on that as well. Of course there are a lot of posts here at C99 about growing food so I'm going to have to go back and read up on them.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement. Y'all give me hope and strength, and I am forever grateful!
