Living in an RV : Day 10

I've lived in my RV for 10 days now. I have only gone back to the condo to get clothes, and to sleep one night (basically I picked a loud parking spot that was 10 feet from the condo and it was 5am so I just went inside instead of driving to a quiet spot). A lot of things have panned out as expected, but there have also been some big surprises.

I could go on and on, but you probably get the idea. I totally love living in this RV. It's a great feeling to drive over to my mom's house and have her say "Oh, you didn't happen to bring those tickets, did you?" and to just be able to walk into my house and get them.

My parents are really into the RV thing, which is funny. They're always a bit skeptical about my schemes. My dad helped me take out the CRT TV and the Microwave which I replaced with a flat panel and a flash bake oven. My mom made me nice curtains. I'm trying hard to resist the urge to totally trick out the RV. The carpet smells a bit musty so I might put in granite tile or bamboo floors. I think that would be neat.

Thoughts of Sustainable Living

On Where Pianos Roam

I've been thinking more and more lately about sustainable living.  By "sustainable", I mean existing on this planet in ways that do not waste precious resources like water, electricity, and basically anything that comes from the earth.

For now, I take a bunch of items such as plastic bottles, glass, and plastic bags to be recycled once a week.  Anything I don't use I donate to Goodwill for someone else to utilize.  I've quit driving to the gym in favor of walking and riding my bike in my neighborhood.  I take quick showers, and I'm thinking of planting a small vegetable garden.  These are tiny baby steps in my life that I take to live more harmoniously and less selfishly in this world. 

I've been thinking more and more about other teeny, tiny steps I can take. 

The other day, I found this .  .  .
