4/20 Ramble

Blogging on the road.

What is it like?

Whelp, I just blew this same damn spider off of my laptop… for the third time. I was going to type second, oh hey it’s fourth now. Wow, I don’t usually want to kill spiders but yeah. So anyways it’s 4/20. I was smoking a cigarette and typing with one hand before so I was going a little slow. Anyways I’m at Dean’s Creak Resort. Which is basically a motel and with an RV camp. We’ve been doing odd jobs for them in order to park here. They’re being pretty gracious with us. Especially considering that last night I was so wasted that I accidentally stole wood from one of the employee’s own fire stoves while on a wood mission. I went on a journey today to Eureka and was expecting to hear a handful about it when we got back but never did. Shhh, only one other person knows about that. Unless they read this blog. If someone else reads this blog they might ask some questions. But anyways back to why my website and communicating in general is so hard right now. First off my phone broke a while ago. Don’t worry once you go about 3 weeks with shitty cell phone service followed by a couple of days without a phone you’ll stop caring. By the way if you’re ever planning on moving to the West Coast, don’t get Sprint. Honestly the only thing I really miss is my camera. And then there’s that whole internet thing. Sure it’s easy when you have a nice Starbucks to chill in. Otherwise you’re screwed. Yes Mcdonalds and Burger King have wifi. Guess what they don’t have? Plugs. Yes, I could plug my laptop into the bus. And that’s how the battery dies. Over and Over. Speaking of Wifi. This wifi sucks. I’ve been trying to change the color on my theme for twenty minutes now. I’ve been trying for so long that I decided to write this post instead.

On a side note:

Remember when I said it was 4/20? Funny moving to the West Coast will also turn you back into a pothead. Brownies. I have Brownies in the near future. And that’s about all I can say. What was the point of this post again?

Update: 4/21/16 Brownies. So good.

The Skallywagon
The Skallywagon

This is the Skallywagon, which is where I currently sleep at night. We have one other bus named Betsy. Both of these buses are currently home. We were joking the other night about how I’m the only member who has slept on all the buses. Yeah, I get around like that.

So much has happened in the last week. I’ll blog about some of the other highlights later. Three members, one dog, and one bus, Snailing Away, or the Snail for short left this week so they could get the bus registered in Oregon. I had my first media interview this morning while sitting outside of a Starbucks in Fortuna. Guess where I’m writing this from? We’ll be getting a lot of press in the next couple of weeks so this is something I have to get used to. Acclimating is my middle name right now. I’ve done a ton of volunteer work this month and my clothes are currently falling off. I am getting stronger by the day. And tanner. The days are getting hotter and I’ll be in Eel River by the end of the week. The dogs will probably join me. All five of them.
