1. Recently it was 2.22.2022. 2+2+2+2+2+2 = 12 1+2 = 3
“Wherever the number 3 shows up in your life, it’s generally an omen of creativity, communication, optimism, and curiosity!” – Cosmopolitan

2. It isn’t always easy to find a location where I can wash WHQ in the traditional sense: lots of water and soap. I’ve been using this waterless car wash for several years with excellent results.

3. How much time do you spend talking to yourself everyday? I mean in your head, not out loud. Do you mostly talk to yourself about the same things you talked about yesterday?

QOTD: “We cannot live securely in a world which is not our own, in a world which is interpreted for us by others.

“Part of the terror is to take back our own listening, to put our ears to our own inner voices, to see our own light, which is our birthright, and comes to us in silence.” ~ Elaine Bellezza

Southern Tire Mart

4 Comments

Southern Tire came out and repaired the slow leak in the inside driver’s side rear tire. The tire had leaked down from 100 psi to 50 psi in 3 weeks. Turns out it was the valve stem. $180 and worth it.

I really appreciate road side services.

The repaired tire back on WHQ.

I’ll check the tire pressure again before I roll on down the road to assure myself that the problem is resolved.

QOTD: “What we name as anger is actually only the incoherent physical incapacity to sustain this deep form of care in our outer daily life; the unwillingness to be large enough and generous enough to hold what we love helplessly in our bodies or our mind with the clarity and breadth of our whole being.” – From David Whyte’s book, Consolations: The Solace, Nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words

Living full time in my rv is an ongoing adventure in down sizing. There is a limited amount of storage space and rig weight is an important safety issue. If I stay parked a month or more it seems things start to accumulate.

Down sizing? Here are a few questions to ask.

1. Does it add value that I can identify?

2. Am I keeping this just-in-case something occurs? Is this a duplicate? Duplicates are often the “just in case” option.

3. Is it digital clutter? I steady have to manage digital clutter.

4. Are these photos and papers really important? Are they still important if they once were important? I no longer print photos and I regularly toss out papers.

5. Is this trash? Is it damaged? The seemingly never ending flow of trash requires attention from the source to the home. I try to select less trash at the store. I feel the need to reduce the incoming flow.

6. If it no longer fits it needs to go.

7. Is this for an abandoned hobby or past phase?Recently I tried to toss my small collection of leather pieces. I just couldn’t do it this time. It’s a past phase. I have some jewelry making supplies that need to go too.

8. Has this items useful life expired? I’ve been culling my clothes. Some are showing their age: really faded or tattered or maybe holes in them.

9. Does this make me feel worse?

Some things are conflicted. Tools and coats are “just in case” items but still add value. More than one shirt is helpful. Spare batteries. Necessary.

QOTD: Want to communicate with trees? “Slow your whole body and elongate it into tree-time. Go … like a child, playful and with reverence. Pay exquisite attention to every nuance of the entire scene with all your senses wide open.” —Written by Red K Elders,

My 100 Day Project 2022

1 Comment

I’m not sure about my project this year. I have a lot of questions I’m working out. I think it’s a photo book project. The first phase is collecting photos from my stay at Magnolia Branch Wildlife Reserve.

Here are a few from the flooding February 4th.

The road was flooded for a quarter mile or so. It was more than a foot deep around the curve. I didn’t take a picture there because I did not want to stop. I think I was off the road several times. Water leaked into the jeep.
You can just see the yellow rails of the platform above the water at the bottom of the staircase. Normally that platform is 10 feet above the water.
The day before I walked past that green sign 50’ or more down to the Big Escambia Creek. Not this day.
The big, wide beach eroded and was still partially under water. I didn’t go there while it was mostly under water.

QOTD: “To achieve what the Zen Buddhists call “beginner’s mind,” you dispense with all preconceptions and enter each situation as if seeing it for the first time. “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities,” wrote Zen teacher Shunryu Suzuki. “but in the expert’s there are few.”

Travel Day

Leave a comment

February 1 I left South Montgomery and headed towards Atmore to hang out in the woods.

While getting prepped to leave, the inverter Freedom 458 had an attacked of humming. I panicked, makes several calls, messed with the inverter and then it stopped humming. My current plan is to roll to Atmore, order a replacement, have it shipped here and install it when I return to Montgomery. Keep your fingers crossed.

Starryai

The night before and I’m in bed at 6 pm.

I bought fuel on the way. I have a 60 gallon tank.

I was running on empty.
I have a nice, peaceful new yard. I’m looking forward to the campfires and bicycle riding as soon as the rain slacks up.
My first visitor. I believe it is an assassin beetle.

QOTD: Many raindrops, trickles, streams, creeks, and rivers contribute to the pool of cosmic consciousness. Each tributary has its own eddies, whirlpools, stagnant backwaters, calm pools and rushing rapids. Where they converge the merging is not always easy. At times there is resistance, turbulence as each tries to have its separate way.

Road Trip Day 16

2 Comments

The last day of 2021. It’s rainy. Maybe I’ll make it back to WHQ today.

I thought this was an intriguing marketing idea.
Tasty fruit
This one me was looking at me.
What a surprise at WHQ. One of the air plants bloomed. Isn’t it lovely. I’m looking forward to the pups.

I’m back at WHQ. Things look and function as they should. It’s good to be back. It was good to be away. Sitting outside in shorts enjoying a cup of French Market Chicory coffee.

QOTD: “What worn-out shticks are blinding us to the blessings that life is conspiring to give us?

Which of our theories may have been useful and even brilliant in the past but are now keeping us from becoming aware of the ever-fresh creation that unfolds before us?

It’s not enough to terminate our stale mental habits just once.  We have to ask ourselves rude questions and kick our own asses again and again.

We have to immerse ourselves regularly in the waters of chaos.

Our relationship with life has to be a never-ending improvisation.” – Rob Brezsny

Once Upon a Time in Pint Lala 4

Leave a comment

1. I dropped the November 1SE video. It’s mostly shot in Pint Lala. Enjoy.

2. Every week I go to the Alabama Safari Park. Taking pics there is one reason I’m parked here.

3. Here I sit, dictating. In the distance I hear the blaring of a train horn and the rumble of its wheels. The coffee is lukewarm French Market Coffee in the white NOLA cup. I’m warming my feet in front of a space heater.

Once Upon a Time in Pint Lala 3

Leave a comment

1. On this beautiful fall day, my body is telling me to kick back, rest and try to get over this runny nose, itchy throat and stuffed up sinuses. The flow is definitely about rest and I’m going with the flow.

2. Recently I went for a drive to gather supplies. I passed a Koch Foods processing plant. I thought it looked cool with the bright blue sky.

“Heroes work here!”

3. Next door to the RV park the local water company is drilling a deep well to cover future expansions.

Pint Lala 2

Leave a comment

Not much happening the last few days. I went to Dollar General to score some supplies. It was new one and the first DG I’ve been in that sold minimal produce. I got some bananas. I like bananas.

I wandered back to Alabama Safari Park. It was fun. Oddly, I forgot my big camera.

A pesky lama blocking the way.
It was a beautiful day

I drove to the state liquor store in Hayneville AL. It’s the county seat of Lowndes County. It was closed.

Civil rights protesters were killed by the white minority.

QOTD: “Whether we are on the threshold of a Golden Age or on the brink of a global cataclysm that will extinguish our civilization is not only unknowable, but undecided.”

Once Upon a Time in Pint Lala

Leave a comment

I arrived in Pintlala November 1. I got here in the early afternoon and began the process of switching from travel mode to stationary mode.

This involves lowering the stabilizing jacks, picking up things I put on the floor for traveling safely, setting up the plants and ‘not an altar’, and getting out the other miscellaneous stowed items. It’s a several day process. There is no hurry.

Pint Lala day 2. In the a.m. i journeyed to the local grocer in the capital of a backward region of this country. I hope I obtained enough supplies for two weeks or more. Once back at WHQ, I stored most all the supplies.

3. I journeyed to the local safari park and after negotiating the price of admittance, spent some time with the creatures. Alabama Safari Park

4. I’ve been back to the safari park to take a few pictures. Good times.
