This life of mine is currently full of changes. In a short time I will be change from a great big house to a little one bedroom apartment in the local, what passes for, high rise building. I will be investigating prepping in an apartment. I will be trying to figure out what to do with the Harley I will be riding very day possible. Trying to get on with my life.
The biggest issue is this, I like to ride, some would call me a biker. I like to take care of my bike. The low buck apartment that I can afford does not have a parking facility per se. It has a couple of open lots in the scumbag infested downtown environs of Excelsior Springs. Now I can afford, I think, a rental storage unit big enough to hold my tools and work benches and the bike and associated items. I can put the generator in there and the compressor too. That way lets me generate power, to air up tires, charge batteries, run the compressor for other things. I can work on my hobbies for a short time in there. I say a short time as summer is fast approaching and the summer time  climate inside a storage unit is generally not suited for spending your leisure time in. Now all this is feasible. I just have to figure out how to transition from the truck to the bike. The aisles in the storage facilities are too narrow to allow backing the truck into the unit and the unit managers do not allow open storage of your vehicles. I guess this means I will request two parking spaces a the apartment, tarp the bike during bad weather and put it in storage during the winter. And do my spring motorcycle prepping in the storage unit and work on the truck, if allowed, in the parking lot of the apartment. God knows I'm growing to understand hatred.
I keep looking for a different job, I keep hoping for my disability claim to be approved. Either of these would make a huge change in my life.
You don't know the strength of the urges I have to sell all I have except the bike, pack up and leave. Leave for the life of a vagabond. I could have a pretty good amount of  money to live on by selling everything and then getting odd work here and there to supplement that. It's very tempting. Tempting indeed.
