a bed to dream of part three part three The cart is the second item in the formula sited in the last blog. As I said, we went with the most common of sizes, just 170 square feet. A lot could be said about purposefully moving into that small of a space but I willContinue reading “THE CONSUMATE CARGO TRAILER CONVERSION”


Part Two I went with the 8.5’ x 20’ trailer, a very common size. We, me and my girlfriend Angie, opted for the screwless exterior and heavy-duty upgrade, meaning larger axils and tires. We mean to live in this box so we bought the best box we could. A blue box. That brings me toContinue reading “THE CONSUMATE CARGO TRAILER CONVERSION”


Part One I’d been planning this project for several years. It was the corner stone of a larger project – live in a different way, for a different reason. I viewed a number of YouTube videos on the matter and saw many ways I would improve on what others had done. One has to doContinue reading “THE CONSUMATE CARGO TRAILER CONVERSION”

Fake Likes – Fake Followers

SAY IT ISN’T SO! Sure I was suspicious when I started receiving likes and even followers after not having had any at all. I wanted to believe that people had actually discovered my blog and really liked or at least considered what I had to say. Then I began to notice the pattern that thisContinue reading “Fake Likes – Fake Followers”

The Freedom To Write

I was reading about the death of literature and how people don’t read books anymore, they prefer video. I thought it unfortunate for me since I have recently decided to write a few novels myself. To be fair though the books I’m writing would only appeal to a very few even if it suddenly becameContinue reading “The Freedom To Write”

All That’s Left Behind – Selling The Farm – Part 6

Selling your farm is different than just selling your house because the farm is home to more than just you and your family. We have had a large variety of animals here on Cota Farms over the years mostly because we had the space and enjoyed their company. Often we were unable to maintain themContinue reading “All That’s Left Behind – Selling The Farm – Part 6”

Going Homeless In Style

I’m taking a little break from my ‘selling the farm’ series as progress has become painfully slow mostly because it won’t stop raining. The change in weather across the world is real and far more serious than the media in the States will admit to. When they do speak about it, we are pelted withContinue reading “Going Homeless In Style”

The Shepherd’s Manual

I was recently inspired to share †††some books in my collection. It never occurred to me to do such a thing until I was reading a post from Tim Miller, – Classic Jam Hits – in which he shared some books from his collection that caught my attention. Being a shepherd is (for a fewContinue reading “The Shepherd’s Manual”

Facing The Wall – Selling The Farm – Part 5

The process of selling the farm has been sadly very much like everything else I’ve planned in this life, surprisingly difficult, discouraging, and even spiteful. Sometimes I’m able to step outside the feeling of self pity (I can’t think of a better phrase right now) and view with fascination how circumstances magically become more difficultContinue reading “Facing The Wall – Selling The Farm – Part 5”
