Taking a look at a travel trailer this weekend

Chatting through email back and forth and as I mentioned previously, we're hoping to trade up to a bigger travel trailer. We found one online and after getting some pictures, we're going to go have a look at it.

The race is on

Recently, I lost my job due to budget cuts. It sucks. I haven't been on EI since I was 19 with no skills. It does however, present an opportunity.

We're still selling off our stuff, and it's honestly a pain in the backside. I post something, and get questions about it, and have to try and figure those questions out. Some of the questions, I should have known would be asked, and posted them when I made the ad, but I didn't, so that's my fault.

Dear Spammers

Dear Spammers,

I know that you won't read this simply because you are bots, but for the few that are not....

Your posts that end with your stupid link to your garbage? Yea, it gets stopped by my filter, and waits approval. I then mark you as spam, and then delete you.

Stop doing it. You lame tools.

Nobody likes you, and you should just stop breathing.

My job is to stop losers like you. Seriously. I get paid to track you down, expose you, and have you criminally charged in your country.

Do you really want to test me? I do this on my free time too.

Start small. Work up.

Recently, I was let go from my job due to budget cuts, and thinning out each department. No big deal I suppose. The writing was certainly on the wall, I just didn't know when.

Looking for what we need, we would have to take out a loan, and I really don't want to do that if possible. However, buying something smaller, and dragging the van around for minion to sleep in is silly as well. He's been enjoying staying in the van for the past few weeks since we had visitors for a night. It's getting colder now, so he's decided to come back in the house. Being 14, I don't want him to be able to have run of a place, and come and go as he pleases without being able to hear him.

The hunt for that perfect home

I have to say, looking for what we need at a price we can afford is not that easy. There are a LOT of RV's for sale that are basically weekender models, and then there are what we would like, but it's not a four season model (meaning that there isn't any insulation or heated tanks).

We're not really planning on being up here in Canada during the winter, but there will be times that we'll need it anyways. I once was camping, went to bed in 25C weather, and woke up to a foot of snow around my tent. Was not pleasant...

The journey continues

We have been selling off our "stuff" for a bit now, and we have a few hundred dollars in a jar now. We're still selling stuff, and we're not in any rush. We've had people contact us looking for a 75% discount on what we are selling, and we don't even need to respond. We are not in any rush.

Getting rid of "stuff"

Today I posted about 20 ads on kijiji.ca (Canada's version of craigslist, only way better) of stuff we are selling. Occasionally, I'm sure that we will start to get emotional over certain "stuff", but right now, we're getting rid of a lot of stuff that we either do not use or won't once we move.
