patti said...

now That looks like fun! Enjoy, see the country :)

Joan of Argghh! said...

Fun? It's home. For a while. I found work near Daytona, so why not camp on the beach and kick back?

Going John Galt. . . halfway, at least.

:o)

Big enough to hold my easels and paints and canvases.

julie said...

As long as there's room for what's important, that's no bad thing.

Congrats!

GUYK said...

GREAT! When are you headed back this way?

Joan of Argghh! said...

There's just one problem. I can't afford to drive it anywhere!

:o)

pamibe said...

That's awesome!! ...as long as you've got an internet connection!

Nothing wrong with parking it for a few weeks in a spot as beautiful as Daytona, but you'll really have to find time (and money) to get 'er on the road.

Construction specialists are always using RVs as temporary housing. Two or three guys may come in and rent a camp slot for weeks or months at a time. It's an inexpensive way to go.

LauraB said...

It will do, m'dear. It will do nicely. And just imagine the light there...

I expect to see some work posted there - the avocation kind.

Stay well...

Joan, a Raccoon on wheels, awesome!

But I’m not gonna lie to you, my first thought was not only will this baby suck down the jet fuel, it will suck the greeniacs out of the woodwork.

But rather than show up here adding problems to the list, I’ve got a soulution! Right above the place where they will be cramming the bananas (commonly know as the tail pipe) place one of these bumper stickers:

“Don’t worry, it’s a hybrid.”

“Don’t worry, it runs on former CEOs”

“Don’t worry, it was recycled from the shards of once great American car companies”

“I’ve got Jesus-fish in my tank!”

You get the idea. Fire with fire.

Seriously, blessings,
Rick

PS. I christen thee, Joan’s Ark!

Joan of Argghh! said...

LMAO at Ricky! Joan's Ark, indeed.

I've thought about getting a sticker that says, "I'm not slow, I'm hyper-miling."

:o)

Is there a window for your dog to hang her head out of?

Velociman said...

Sweet. You should get one of those rendering units that converts hobos, teenage hitchhikers, and environmentalists into 87 octane. Chainsaw's extra, of course.

Joan of Argghh! said...

OMG! Vman, that is exactly what would make the whole thing blogable!

As it is, I plan on parking it at Beverly Beach and being in the surf by 5:30 every afternoon. If I make enough money to move it, I'll trundle off to the next admin job or KOA job or whatever. Or go visit the J.R. in Jax or Charleston or wherever he lights.

My original plan was to make it to Bend, OR by the middle of summer.

Joan-
Can you take my wife...please? :^)
Just kiddin'...sorta.

Skully said...

Just siphon gas from the hybrids. They don't need it.

Skully said...

Does it have a still? Brew yer own fuel, I always say.

Sam said...

Sweet!!! Stretch do loves him some pepper.. Swing by up here and take him for a ride. He be cool!

Sal said...

If Joan doesn't move it much, I think it qualifies as a Tiny House, so shut up, greenies.

Hope the new job is a good one, and safe trip!

Irrelephant said...

Oh that is freaking marvelous, Joan! You're a modern day nomad now, able to pull up tent stakes (er...sewer and potable water connections) and move as time and tide will it. Follow the turning leaves, or follow the migrant workers, or heck, follow the sparrows. :) Good on you, dear!

mushroom said...

I'd call it a blessing. It's you. Eat your heart out Charles Krault -- or whatever his name was.

Maybe just add a small brass blackpowder cannon to go with the cutlass -- Land Pirate!

Betsy said...

I'm in awe that you could actually drive it, I have enough trouble with just a regular car. Hope it doesn't take you too far away though... I rather like knowing we're kinda sorta neighbors.

robinstarfish said...

Hey you can make a load of cash with an RV if you go all "Breaking Bad"...

dogette said...

Before they're banned! YES!!!!!
