Home Sweet Home
Just a short note to declare that this is the beginning of my adventure into a van-life. In the past week or so I have actually slept in my van 3 times while I was equipping the van and getting things done for personal stuff.
I have stopped to visit a few parks that I do plan to return to and photograph in the near future. Although I took a few photos at each place it may be a while before they are edited and posted.
Still, I will mostly be around Oklahoma City for a few days. On Monday I plan to visit a senior apartment complex to get on their list for an apartment just in case I need one in the future. Also, I have a few things to do of a personal nature in western Oklahoma, and I hope to make my first photo outing soon.
So, this is the true beginning of my adventure. Wish me luck.

I have just returned from a 4 week trip to Las Vegas. The trip was to find a place to live until my apartment in Boulder City, (just southeast and out of the Las Vegas Valley) Nevada became available. Not only was the trip a bust but I am sick, sore, and tired from the trip. I have been back in Oklahoma for 4 days, slept in a real bed once, and about to try out a new mattress I put in my van yesterday.
I have not and will not give up on having a van-life but tomorrow I will see my former landlady to see if I can return to the complex where I last lived. If she lets me in now I will take it. If she puts me on a waiting list I will live in my van and travel and photograph Oklahoma to get an idea of whether I can do the van-life.
While my van is purposely currently rigged with portable camping equipment throughout. This is for a reason. Since buying the van I have needed a camper van, a passenger van, and a utility van. But, today I took a look at what is there and how it sits in my van, and I now know what I want to build to put in my van and follow one simple theme I have in mind: Keep it simple, keep it fun, and get it done.

No, it is not the casinos, although I occasionally dine in them. No, it is not the cities. I can’t stand the traffic or to be in the same valley as 3 million other people. But, take a drive outside of the Las Vegas Valley, pick a spot to park, get out of your car, and take a deep breath.
Well, I have been on a hiatus of sorts. I have a tendency to overdo it when I get involved with my projects, and it has been a hard 2.5+ yea...
