Hi 80, lo 60 beautiful fall weather no rain in a week! I paid $1.94 for Gasoline on Monday. I am thinking about moving into a tent. I see lots of happy campers in tents around here. I can do that too. I slept in a tent 2 nights when I was in the military. I frequently slept on boats in San Francisco, in libraries, on floors, etc. I can figure out tents and be able to have maximum geographical flexibility to drive quickly to places I need to be. My ancestors lived 90,000 years in tents in Northern Scandinavia. Much easier nowadays. I can do quite a lot of work with a laptop. Free wi-fi everywhere. Could do a lot with just a smartphone but I need a keyboard and bigger screen. I lived out of a briefcase most of my adult life. I can do that again. Just like I am going back to using cash and getting rid of all debit cards and most credit cards. Even reducing the use of checks. Cash register receipts contain gender bender chemicals. I pay in cash and avoid touching the receipts. Go pay electric bill in person using cash for water, sewer, internet, gasoline, etc. If I use free wi-fi I can reduce paperwork paying for my own internet. Simplify life. Try to reduce frequency of on-line banking.
Houses and apartments and RVs have toxic air. Furniture and contents add toxins to that toxic air. Earthquakes shake down buildings and roll RVs. Tents seem the way to go. Drive to the best weather all over the USA. North in Summer, South in Winter.
Try to avoid using computers TV, radio or other electronics. There are huge security risks to computers such as Dell Microsoft, Apple, etc. Even worse if made in China. Try Gentoo Linux for more security! I am getting offline ASAP as much as possible. Read real paper newspapers, books, journals, magazines, … I did this before so not hard for me. I dislike getting online with all the sloppy websites have to deal with there, even if they are not infested with web bugs
