The Great White Buffalo

So we bought a fifth wheel. And a truck to pull it. Because who wants to live in a regular old house, anyways?

Apparently not us.

Here she is! 32 foot fifth-wheel and a Dodge 3500 diesel. As with Free Range, we have been brainstorming ideas for the name: Land Shark (SNL skit), The Cottage, and, I think my most favorite to date: The Great White Buffalo.

 

We came to the decision after realizing that we probably aren’t going to be settling down anytime soon and that the next place – or places – we go may very well not be where we want to be forever. Stephane’s looking into testing the waters of the firefighting world – which means you go to where the fires are – or back to EMS – which means you have opportunities to move to different bases until you find the base / location which you are happiest. I’ve secured a few contract gigs working remotely. Sooooo, all signs point to us being mobile for now. Just makes sense.

Shower and bathroom (door to the right). Yes, the shower is in the bedroom and yes, there are gold-colored door handles and trim and the vibe is circa 1983 but it’s all about function over aesthetics, people!

Myra has claimed her spot. Right under the fan / air conditioning.

The “basement” (additional storage under the floor of the camper).

Because we have such few belongings, we were able to move in over the course of a few hours, find a place for everything, and still have quite a bit of unused storage area left. Many of the systems are very similar to what we had on Free Range so we are, essentially, on a Land Boat.

So, lookout National Forests and RV parks, The Great White Buffalo will be on the move soon!
