I’m in the van for a couple of weeks, learning bit by bit about how to live in it. I had hoped to be more practiced by now, but an opportunity to do some house sitting changed that. I have (thanks to my son-in-law) changed the bed configuration, which I am much happier about. More comfortable.
The sheepskin mattress topper is working well too. Quite comfy and does not take up as much space as the alternatives I was looking at.
I’ve managed to reduce the number of things in the van – but I had “extra’s” because of my moving around. I have extra’s of food, cleaning items, and other bits and pieces that I will either use in the next few weeks or put in the shipping container.
There is still a long list of things to do – things to learn, but I am confident that I will be pretty much competent by the time I head to Alice Springs.
One of the big items on my agenda at the moment is my work for co-housing for Senior Solo Women. You can read more about it at this website.
There is a lot happening with a lot of information coming from overseas, and within Australia. It took the London and France projects some 15 – 16 years to reach success with their projects so I hope I don’t have to wait that long.
So, am I trying to do to much at once? Yes, but that is typically what I do.
So between now and the end of July, I will work on the SOSEW project, getting up to speed for my journey to the Red Centre, and house sitting on the Gold Coast for two weeks.
So much to do, but so much fun and high hopes of success.
Watch this space.
