Moving to Austin

Looks like we are packing up next week and heading down to Austin, where we found a sweet campground RV park with lots of trees. The air is fresh, the rolling hills of the area offer magnificient views, and the people are supposed to be a lot friendlier in Austin. Overall, I believe this will be a good change for us.

We even got the biggest lot on the site (presumably they mean other than the manager's, since he had a pretty sweet setup) and it has a storage shed included on our lot. This will give us space to move most of our junk out of the house and finally get some work done. I may have to stick to hand saws to avoid disturbing the neighbors, and I may have to do my cutting inside, so the cats might be spending extra time locked in the bathroom, but I think I can finally build some rudimentary furniture.

I can't wait to get away from the cement plants in this town. If there is one thing wrong with Midlothian, TX, it is the cement plants polluting the air.

I also believe that the change in atmosphere should make it easier for us to stick to our preferred diets of raw foods. The warm weather should also help a lot, as I need to stay pretty active when eating raw. It sounds like we might even have some 'lawn space' of some sort, so maybe we can set up a little fire pit or at least a place for some outdoor chairs and a yoga mat or two.

Now now, don't want to get too optimistic yet... cross your fingers for us.


  1. Austin is a great place, nice climate, good folks, lots to do. Congrats on finding a place there.

  2. James, I think what you are doing is awesome and I wish you guys nothing but success. There's no way I can really say that without sounding like a Hallmark card, but it's true. I'm not so happy about you being ones doesn't mess, but maybe it will give me an excuse to visit the state when I do my Open Mic Cross Country Extravaganza. Cheers.

  3. There was a chunk of sentence that was omitted from my comment:

    "I'm not so happy about you being all the way in TX, with which I've heard one doesn't mess."

    And there was a spelling error in there to boot. Sweet.

  4. Oh good. It makes a lot more sense now.

    Yay, JON-BLOG!!! *revels*

  5. I have a question about your lovable loo. Where do you find to empty it when on the road or when in a place where there is no composting place?
