Update on my vandwelling status.
Summer has become a reality, so I am fully alive. It doesn't get dark until 9 o'clock. There has been plenty of sun. Thus: I am a happy dude. I am spending most of my days in Kennett Square dealing with a balance of travel preparations and work. I am in the...

Project Minivan-imalism: I bought a 2007 Toyota Sienna.
Living in a van is exceptionally easy. I never bought much stuff, and recently I've been learning that I want even less. My current van is absolutely enormous. My belongings fill only a small percentage of the cavernous interior. With a fresh Pennsylvania i...

I've been woken up from a dream. I woke myself up. I left Austin and returned to Pennsylvania. I parked in the driveway in Kennett Square. The weather was perfect, and it was mid-afternoon. I entered through the screen door, and felt bizarre. It felt like I...

Met up with Mike.
I've decided that I am probably headed home soon. By home, I mean Philadelphia and the surrounding area. I tried to be productive today, which required wifi. I had great difficulty finding an open connection, even with my USB antenna situation. I put some b...

Ten lucky minutes today will result in more profit than two well advertised book sales yesterday. That is normal. It's all part of the job.  There was a screening at the library for a documentary about Austin's moonlight towers. There were a few open seats,...

A typical day of work.
The book sale in San Antonio looked like ten dirty hands fighting for the broken chips at the bottom of a bag. I have to go to these sales, because there is money to be made. Sometimes it's ugly. But I had to get in there and extract what I could.
