(Formally "Plan V: A Van Dwelling Blog", when I lived in a 1978 Dodge Xplorer 228 Class B motorhome van)

End of the road

Well, it turns out a low income disabled apartment opened up for me last month in Tacoma WA, so I moved in this month. It was too good to pass up. A HUD subsidized good sized 1br apartment with lots of storage, 3rd floor with some of a view, elevator access, free parking (for the 1993 Geo Metro I bought last month) and still in the city. The full rent would be about $800 and I am paying about 1/3 of that with the HUD subsidy due to my income level.

The van is in storage due to laws/rules about camper vans and such. I found a relatively low priced place, $30 less than I was paying before. I have no plans to get rid of it anytime soon. I have too much in it. I doubt I could get even HALF of what I have in it. I will use it for short getaways around the northwest mostly due to it's low MPG, but who knows... I might take a long trip in it again some day.

I will either be revamping this blog into a general travel blog, or just creating a new blog and posting a link to it. I'm not sure which I'll do, yet.

Post a comment with your suggestion on which you think I should do.

In the meantime, a few photos:

 Nice bit of a view.
