We haven’t posted in a bit, so I figured it was about time to at least make a note of what’s been going on. The last few weeks have been a little hectic as we’ve been trying to integrate with the server team from the company we merged with. In addition to that, we’ve been tied up on the weekends visiting with some friends out of town and going to Hunter Safety classes.
The good news is we are both 100% legal to hunt and are possibly less likely to shoot each other with bow and arrow, shotguns, rifles or black powder firearms. The bad news is we have jobs for the foreseeable future instead of a 6 month severance package.

As it was still early and we had this beautiful day going for us, we were loathe to call it a day. We wandered around a bit finding a couple more truck campers to look at. Nothing much to speak of as these were low-end units that had apparently been traded in to get a few bucks off that 40′ Class A.
And then, we ran into this sign:

Today, we had a great time searching all over the state for the elusive truck camper. We were lucky as we were actually able to observe multiple herds in the same day. First, we traveled West. Here we found a nice sized herd. We were quite amazed to find the Host breed mingling with both the Arctic Fox and the Adventurer. These three also allowed a couple of others to graze the same area. It was quite an interesting grouping, and we were glad to have the finally opportunity to examine so many of them.

At this point, it’s almost a joke. I talked with my folks the other day and the first question they asked was ‘So, have you decided what you want yet?’. The answer is ‘yes, but…’
Our goals are (in no particular order):
- The ability to go almost anywhere
- Maintaining as much self sufficiency as possible
- Keeping to a modest budget during both the purchasing and living phases
- Being able to bring along a few toys to help occupy the time
- Having enough living space to not kill each other
The perfect vehicle would be roughly:
- no more than 25′ long
- larger on the inside than the outside
- very popular in order to be available used and at more affordable prices
