29 November 2008 - small but cozy

Most of you know my mini-van: after all I have been driving it for almost five years now, no need to spend "girl's money" on a vehicle for me to drive for work...OH, WAIT, I bought this mini-van with my own money that I earned by working a full-time job, with no overtime pay! Silly me!!
Anyway, I back to the original intent of this post...

and most of you know my current housing arrangement for my new job entails living in an RV park.

So I'd like to introduce you to...

My mini-van on steriods!

Otherewise known as "the silver bullet"! Isn't it the cutest little thing?
Of course I look like the orphan stepchild next to all the HUGE units that surround me, but that's beside the fact that for me it's plenty big enough, and it doesn't take very much electricity to keep me warm (or cool) and I can see the TV from any place in the trailer...oh wait, in the Airstream (I've been reminded by the owners that you only refer to an Airstream as an AIRSTREAM, not a trailer!

I have two single beds (room for a visitor) and the couch unfolds into a double bed, too! The beautiful blue striped awning out front hasn't gotten too much use, because it has either been too windy or I have really wanted the sun to shine in the windows anyway. Almost everybody around me does a lot of cooking outside, guess I'll have to bring my grill down one of these days.

The only thing I miss is being able to stand in the shower and let the water run on my head (the shower head hits me at about my shoulder and there is only a 6 gallon hot water heater) and I could use a big storage closet. So for now my mini-van has a new use, too ... a big storage closet!

This sounds like a fun adventure. Do you live anywhere near the yarn shop that sponsors the KISS knitting retreat? I've heard that's a really good shop. If so, you never know, I MIGHT come visit you sometime. I live in the KC, Missouri area.
