About a week after that last post I screwed up an update of wordpress and locked myself out of my website. Finally got it fixed today. And by “got it fixed” I mean I called up my friend who owns an IT support company and he fixed it for me. What took him about a half an hour probably would have taken me about a half a day to figure out. It’s good to have good friends with expertise.
What prompted me to finally get around to making that call was the fact that I was just interviewed for an article in the New York Times Magazine about living in a car. I don’t know much about it other than it’s a short piece. Don’t know if the reporter is interviewing others, but I’m looking forward to reading it and hoping that it won’t be too “Oh my god! The economy is forcing everyone to live in their car! This is crazy!” We’ll see. I think any publicity is good publicity and maybe some people who read the article will come here and ask questions. I’m happy to answer them.
I like to spread the idea that car living can actually be a fun, adventuresome and learning experience. Sure, most people who are doing it are doing it because they have to, but for those who choose to do it, car living should be looked on as the same category of adventure as backpacking around Europe, hiking the Appalachian trail, biking across the US or RVing to all the national parks.
