It is HOT.

With near record breaking temps this past week and a bit, it's been a heck of a thing trying to not burn up. I even have a few proof pics of the 36C/97F temps. Thankfully, we live near the ocean now! That water is cold for a moment, but its better than sweltering in this heat.

I got back to the RV late last night, around midnight, as I have some work to do in a clients office, and it was a muggy 25C/77F with still air. That makes it feel even hotter than it is.

Help me out? Even a bit?

So, I have mentioned it in passing in the past, but I am trying to build my webhosting up so that I can finally bring in extra cash, and eventually replace my work for someone else career.

The biggest thing preventing us from properly fulltiming and living our lives is that my job requires me to be in a general location. We can not ever leave where we are as long as I work for someone else.

I started this project a couple years back, and it got put on hold as my daughter was born, and my money and time needed to go to more immediately important things.

Well, in the three weeks since my family and I moved to Nanaimo, I've been out with them spending time once. That was yesterday for Father's Day.

I don't want to do that again. I want to be there with my family. It is the one driving factor in my life that makes me truly happy.

A lot of people want to be able to spend more time with family, but few have the ability to properly act on it. I do.

My webhosting is focused on a niche', but it open to all. In order to fully complete, and launch the webhosting, I need to be able to finish purchasing the remaining domain names I need. Sorry, I can't say what they are. I don't want them bought out from under me, and then offered back to me at $2000 a pop like once before. I was once stupid enough to mention an idea and a domain name that worked which was available. Someone bought it for the $10 it was worth, and asked for $2000 for it. Needless to say, he could keep it.

I'm offering rewards through my GoFundMe page for anyone interested. There's also a simple $25 donation for no reward if so inclined. Heck, if anyone is so inclined, they don't even need to collect the rewards I have.

Have a look, share the page, and help a family man out if you can! Every little bit helps.

A look at the new countertops

So, we finally picked up the new countertops for the RV before we moved to BC, but they were first in a moving trailer, and then in storage until today. So here they are! I'm very excited for the new updated laminate to go in.

They are full pieces without holes, and get cut afterwards when the proper measurements can be completed and I'll use the old countertops as a template, however I'm thinking of changing out some things. I'm currently looking for a new sink and faucet for the bathroom, as well as a new sink for the kitchen. The kitchen isn't that big of a deal and could use the same one we currently have, but I'd really like to change the bathroom out. I honestly don't care much for how the thing is set up. It's really not laid out for full time living in the RV.

Settled into our S&B

It's been two weeks now since we moved into our rented S&B (Stick & Brick) and we're getting settled. I still have some things to grab from the storage unit, but we're almost fully moved in.

Mylaela and I were talking about our plans the other day, and we think we may have something set up. It's just a matter of getting the budget in order, getting the debt's paid off, and saving at the same time.
