Free Money? My Foot.

They tell me it’s free money.  They tell me there’s a guaranteed return on investment.  They tell me it’s a win-win scenario and I’d be stupid not to participate.  “They” say a lot of things. My boss regularly harasses me

Simple Things Can Make All The Difference

There’s a few things I’ve done since we moved into the Squatch that make day to day life just a little bit easier.  I simply want to change my immediate environment to best suit my needs.  I’ve found myself getting

In the Face of Ridicule

My co-workers think I’m nuts.  That’s nothing new; I’ve always worked blue collar jobs with rural type folks.  Salt of the Earth kind of people, some would say.  I’ve never fit in.  My opinions on politics, human rights, environmental concerns,

Two Weeks in Our Motorhome…

Yes, it’s finally happened.  After months of waiting for an RV park space to open up, we’ve finally done it; we’ve moved into our motorhome.  I thought I would be nervous.  I thought it would be nerve racking and stressful.

Noodle Soup Rentals – Renting in a Tiny House Community

By their very nature, tiny houses on wheels are mobile.  This has probably stemmed from the zoning laws and building codes tiny house people have been trying to circumvent.  Also, some folks just want to own a home, but aren’t

Noodle Soup Meiosis – Propagating Tiny House Communities

A tiny house community, such as Noodle Soup Village – Lite, which is based on the grander Noodle Soup Village – A Tiny House Community, is a model that could be reproduced elsewhere.  Even though all of this is just

Noodle Soup Village – Lite

As much as I’d like to build a tiny house community, like Noodle Soup Village, zoning and legal definitions of what is habitable are going to inhibit that dream.  A large scale endeavor like that is also wildly expensive, due

Edification in a Tiny House Community

A tiny house community such as Noodle Soup Village, offers the opportunity to create a small society within the larger one where respect for one another and the Earth is priority number one.  In order to develop respect, one needs

Noodle Soup Village – A Tiny House Community

For twenty eight years I’ve been searching for something.  A mission, a purpose, a place to call home.  I’ve been searching in myself, in others, in culture, books, careers, and geographic locations.  I seek a lifestyle in which my actions

The Appearance of Minimalism

Minimalism is concept I’m trying to embrace fully.  But, like so many ideas, it means different things to different people.  Most minimalists would agree that however you define it, material possessions encompass most of the concept.  Getting rid of stuff,

Stewards of the Earth

Some folks view technology as a sign of changing times.  Of impending unemployment by displacement, ubiquitous colorful screens, a phone thats beeping and buzzing, makes you just want to give it a good chuck sometimes.  But, you don’t do you?

Our New Home: The Squatch

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything.  Partly becasue I’ve been so busy with our new (to us) RV.  I actually have a ton of stuff to share, and soon I hope to get it all out there

Trustworthy, But Not Creditworthy

I relish change.  Embrace it.  I seek it out.  I’m not a “fly by the seat of my pants” kind of guy that will just jump into any situation without mulling it over, but with some thorough planning I try

The Rolling Workshop

In an effort to live the mobile lifestyle, I’ve purchased an enclosed trailer to use for additional storage space and a workshop area.  The intention is to tow this trailer behind a Class C motorhome.  More on the motorhome at Mobile

A Bucket Of Poop – A.K.A. The Humanure Bioreactor

This is all about a bucket of poop.  Several actually.  I mean, as long as everybody keeps pooping, and I don’t see that ceasing anytime soon, then we’ll have to put it somewhere.  Mine?  It goes in the bucket.  Not

Intellectual Property Of The Universe

Not only do I believe all media, books, music, movies, technological designs, and other expressions of human culture should be freely available to all people; I think it should be the intended goal of humanity to broadcast this information into

Fresh Water Stewardship

Water conservation is extremely important when you only have a finite supply of it such as in a motorhome, unless you’re hooked up at a park or campsite and then I suppose, you could just leave the faucet on all

Proud Pooper

Toilets are gross.  That nice clean porcelain throne you do your private business on is a staple of modern society.  Sanitation is a great achievement of technology.  Before there were sewer systems, human waste washed into the streets, plugged up

I’m a shit writer.  Yep, that’s how I’m starting.  I write  in order to organize my thoughts in a coherent manner.  If I were writing this in a text file no one would see, I would quickly get bored, the

Dreams With Wheels

I’ve been busy.  Busy planning, purging, selling, donating, packing, and choosing an RV.  It feels good to be busy again; to have direction, a plan.  And, there is some sort of plan:  a big change.  We’re moving into a motorhome,
