and head north. All the time I was picking up and stowing away, I was musing about how foreign this lifestyle would be to most people. Living in less than 200 square feet of space with a well spoken and oft opinionated blond and a large sasquatch of a hairy black and tan dog does have its’ moments. Dealing with the aches and pains of an aging RV can be frustrating. I am
