    the funny thing is that cat. he's seen everything. 6 years ago to now. he was even trying to warn me this was going to happen. that's what it's like to be a cat. and the beauty of it is, cats don't get heartbroken. that's why they are cats.

    big day i got the vehicle. now that i look closer and see it drive and everything, it's in perfect shape. it's amazing. you can even see the original paint underneath it. the motor was rebuilt in 1999 for $2,700 and it had 72k at the time. it has 80k now. someone took car of this vehicle. it runs like it just was installed yesterday. i've had many muscle cars. i had a 78 grand prix with a 455 (blew the motor in that one shortly after putting in a rear end myself), a 1974 amc javelin with a 1971 360 engine, and a 1980 ford van with a 460. i feel like i went back in time. i know what these engines sound like. this vehicle is a cross between my javelin and van. the motor has an edelbrock carb so it's a little after market. my javelin engine was all after market, cams etc.. i didn't take care of that car. i also had a dodge dart with a 318 for a shot time. that car almost killed me. it had no weight. i could do donuts with 6 people in the car. they would be smooshed against the window with smoke pouring out.

    rv's can look small sometimes depending on the situation. driving down the road it didn't look that big, but parked in my driveway in front of my little 700 ft house it looks big! the landlord called and asked if i was moving out. i called and left a message saying i might have done something impulsive. and it depends on how long i can keep it in the driveway.

    when i came home i found almost everything i own outside under a small tarp against the front of the house and the french Canadian guy and his partner put plywood over all the floor except for the small room i am sleeping.
    so i was surprised to see my stuff outside.

    i made friends with the 40 year old guy that sold me the rv. we got stoned a few times. i tried tab or something for the first time. it was like smoking a joint but only one hit. i have 4 vehicles in my yard lol. he's going to take a 1992 volvo that i have which is in pretty good shape. that car was a money pit. i spent like 3k + on that car the last 6 years. the previous owner had it his whole life and garaged it. but still.. it's a 1992 volvo. he didn't want my 2001 honda insight that i have had rusting the last 6 years so i will give it to a junkyard or mechanic. actually rusting is the wrong word since it has an aluminum frame. the back window has been broken for years after a tree branch broke it. but i had it covered sort of. the interior has actually held up well. but there's mold probably and mice love to eat wires, especially on hybrids. i was actually panning on fixing it someday but that could've been ambitious.

    and i have a fucking midterm tomorrow. i definitely made friends with this guy,. i don't really know his situation though. he has a GF and young baby but they can stay at his parents house but he can't apparently. so it's like Sam in game of thrones. i actually have an extra room at my house and if i stay a little while before leaving i may be able to offer him shelter. and learn more about the rv. he wants to go to the school i am going to and the next opportunity is in april. if he did that we'd actually go to school together. he is smarter than me. and i never make friends in RL. also, he doesn't want to see his awesome rv go, so he want's to stay in touch with me possibly for that too. also, it seemed more appealing to him to seel the rv to someone like him that was probably going to live in it as opposed to some family that would only camp once in a while.

    it's the kind of car as you drive by people or vis versa on the road they turn and give you a thumbs up. my javelin would do that. little kids would stand up and cheer as i drove buy. motorcycles would suddenly pop a wheelie as they went by in the other direction and the malamute dog i was babysitting for a friend for a few months had his head out the back window with his bandana on.

    i've gone from being a shut in the last 10 years, to getting rousted by everyone in RL, to going to school. to perhaps hitting the road. people are disappointed because they wanted me to stay and feel they weren't able to help me even though they did. . i think. construction guys can fix anything, but they can't fix a persons head or their heart or politics. i tried or wanted to warn them not to have skin in the game. ..i think the impetus for me moving out was a misunderstanding. that sort of thing has actually happened to me before.

    i feel in my bones that this is going to end in tragedy. everything seems ok so far. but it's a big change. i guess you could say i feel like a hobbit in lord of the rings leaving the shire. i don't know how i will learn everything i will need to.

    Nully, I pray all works out well for you.

    I feel like I should say be careful of rv guy. It seems like you are in the middle of writing the script of Fargo season 4. Except you are living it.

    i still haven't moved out yet. i discovered some leaks in my awesome RV that i had to replace some wood and seal up. i have a lot going on. i want to try to move out before the end of the month and hit the road. i also figure it's safer while the weather is still bad. less people walking around. but i've bonded with the RV guy. he has a lot going on. he bought another RV after selling me his. i feel a little guilty about taking his.

    all i know is that i am going to fuck the first ugliest, fattest female truck diver i can find at a truck stop the minute i start to go boon docking. and i feel reassured there is some lucky lady out there like that waiting for me. heh

    traveling the country is a little different from what i plan to do. i plan to try to park at school during the night when the lot is empty, and along the road outside during the day so i don't take up space. i asked for permission but i didn't get an answer so i have to wing it. i am going to try to park my car there too, or get a spot at a storage space and swap when i need to drive farther away for things like taking a shower at a health club or seeing family. i can try a state park during the summer and that's only about $500 a month. but i am running out of money, i have to pay for school and stuff. but security is a concern. i am afraid someone will try to rob me at night if i park near school. ..it's funny, you start noticing other people living in their vans or RV's in parking lots. there's been a guy living in an RV in a 24 hour laundromat for 3 weeks near school. i'll have to get an alarm on my car and my RV maybe. OTOH people don't really fuck around with someone in an RV. you don't really know who is in there. i bought a knife and a hatchet i can wear on my belt. and i think i can buy mace. i could save a lot of money parking at school. there's also walmarts and home depots, and there is a decent rest area with bathrooms 10-15 miles away. but that costs gas. my RV has an aftermarket 440 engine so i only get 8-9 miles per gallon. that's one good thing i can say about walmart, they're like the only place that allows people to park RV's in their parking lot. i also have to worry about the police and getting knocks on the door in the middle of the night from a place with security guards asking what i am doing. i've done a fair amount of research looking for places. national parks, state parks, state or national engineer corps, casinos, businesses. also, i am only about 50-60 miles from cap cod, so at some point i'll also treat myself to living on the beach, and can use my car to go back and forth. that will be really cool. location is key. the only truck stop is too far away i think. i was actually looking forward to trying that. i was serious about hoping to meet a female trucker. there's just not enough people in my life that i can talk to.

    i made friends with the RV guy. we've been hanging out a lot. after he sold me his RV he bought another one because he is fearing he's going to get kicked out of his parents house. it's not as good as the one he sold me. he stayed at my house last weekend in my extra room and he replaced the exhaust manifold gasket on his RV. backyard mechanic stuff there. it was impressive. fucking bolts were all seized and stuck. had a really tough time drilling one out. he's really different from me. it's like he has this look or impression where no-one trusts him. he's traveled a lot, seen a lot so naturally he's suspicious of people. while i am open and trusting of people. he's 10 years younger than me. he signed up to go to the school i am going to. in a way i am a white knight and showed up and showed him a path he can take. no-one was really helping him. together we are like 2 survivalists putting our resources together. it's weird for me to make friends with people in real life. he's the suspicious guy traveling the world, and i am the naive trusting guy that lived like a recluse or shut in the last 10 years. we are sort of opposites, except that we are both in the same exact situation. i said to him i am like a hobbit leaving the shire, and he said he is my Samwise Gamgee. i told him he is my rehabilitation. he's going to help me reenter the world. because we can both help each other. this is what RV people do.

    he has a pitbull-boxer dog. which makes sense. he's the type of guy that likes to have backup. and it's the most friendliest dog i've ever seen. you can learn a lot about people from their animals. his parent make him keep it in a cage at their house because they have 2 other dogs, but his parents do like the dog. when i bought the RV and was signing the papers i noticed when he let the dog out, it came over and i bent down and it licked my face. that was an important moment for him. to see if his dog trusted me. the next weekend his cat was sitting on my chest cuddling me. his pitbull-boxer is fucking awesome. IMO and limited experience a boxer is a fucked up animal. they are so attached to their owners that they are too friendly or high maintenance, while pit-bulls are a little distant in general or low maintenance, but when you combine the breeds you get perfect balance. it's a strong dog. all it wants to do is lick my face and try to sit on my lap. it's a big dog. it's all muscle too. in the morning when it's out side my room i hide under the covers of my bed and call it's name and yell help! and it fights to get under my covers and lick my face to death. i laughed because it was even cheating using the wall against my bed for leverage.

    it's strength is incredible. i had a few leaks in my RV and was cutting some wood and replacing panels and i am in the process of sealing the outside up, and two girls walking dogs went by the house. i got impatient thinking they had come back and went buy already so i put the dog outside with his leash anchored to the door so i didn't hurt his hearing as i used a circular saw. and they walked by again and the dog started barking. so i grabbed his leash and opened the door and he just yanked it out of my hand and ran towards them. i'm like OMG!! picturing the dog attacking their dogs and ran to them. but his leash got stuck under the tire of my car and actually he was just trying to sniff their dogs butts. i got to the end of the driveway and tried to stop on snow and went flying on my ass. they were laughing asking if i was alright. i apologized for the excitement and struggled as i brought the dog back in the house.

    it's definitely like the dog in the bugs bunny cartoon, Marc Anthony. when the RV guy goes outside it starts to whimper like he is leaving him. it even starts with his lip wavering as the dog tries to hold it in. and proceeds to full fledged whimpering. it's because when the RV guy left Colorado once he had to leave him there and then went back for him when he got back. also, he showed me videos on his phone of the dog with his 2 year old. it rolls over on it's back with it's arms up and paws bent really gentle as the baby crawls over it. the RV guy told me because the dog understands it's a baby but it's not like that with us because it knows we are men. yet, last weekend when the dog was on my bed i gently rolled it over and it did that with me.

    i have so much going on. i wrote a big long thing here before about what happened after i smashed the dresser but i deleted it. it was sort of negative but i should've left it. i try not to get paranoid and delete posts like i did in the past. so i am not going to do that. it's pretty interesting what's happening to me right now. the RV guy just called me while i was writing this. i had a feeling he was going to. he just fixed his parents furnace after they ran out of oil and a HVAC guy came and worked on it but didn't clean around the pilot. so he was excited about that.

    i had a lot of shit going on earlier. my landlord had an HVAC guy install a mini-split in my house today when i was at school, but he also came by and started fucking around in my bedroom spying on me and rearranging things to see if i am going back to being a hoarder. and somehow either the contractor stole or threw out my $100 electronics book from the school i went to 20 years ago that i needed that i planned to go over again. he's actually upset that happened. they basically threw out all my stuff in revenge after i broke the dresser.

    and then my mom called to tell me the 12 1921 silver dollar coins the RV guy gave me for the $300 i lent him, and i gave my mom to hold onto was worth only $120. and my mom said she didn't like him, even tho she only met him for 5 minutes. her nurse and the nurses ex-boyfriend told her that. so then i had to drive over to my moms and set the record straight. cointracker says they are worth $30 a piece and ebay says $20, and it's not even about the money. he really should've sold his RV to me for more money. i was just going to lend him the money but he insisted on giving me the coins. actually i lent him $400. i threw in an extra $100 to make sure he was ok with what he needed to do. right now he's trying to sell his 1984 CJ jeep for $11,500. he's selling all his toys and trying to grow some roots and go to school.

    so i went to my moms to lightly scold her and her pretty hip nurse for judging my friend too quickly. i feel bad for the guy. not having an aurora that on first impression people trust. i even wonder if he realizes it. this is where i come in because, you just take things slow and learn to get to know a new person. my open demeanor has definitely helped. i met his parents. i gave them two bags of bird seed and then his mom wanted to meet the guy that left it on their deck. for the last few weeks i have been this mystery guy that bought his RV and picks him and his dog up sometimes on my way home from school and we work on our RVs. his dog is happy to go on our adventures.

    his GF thinks i am a loser. he hasn't told his parents that he signed up for the school. he's disappointed because he thinks no-one will pat him on the back for it. it's weird making friends with a survivalist. and then me not really being a survivalist but a recluse. neither one of us makes or has friends i think. it's sort of a Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp situation. i guess i am Doc Holliday.

    i still think i am going to end up dead in a parking lot in Pawtucket RI. and i am ok with that as long as i get to fuck a really fat female trucker first before i get robbed and killed.

    people in my family and my landlord keep saying they are worried about my safety. i paid for one more months of rent for march while i fix up my RV and get organized. i told my landlord he was stupid for bringing his daughter and 100 year old mother to the house to show them he is fixing it up, and i think to shame me for being a hoarder. i told him i was worried about him including them in the situation because i don't know what will happen to me.

    the kids at school said that i am anotonic, i think i spelled it wrong. it means i am neither high or low. i am not suicidal but i don't really care what is going to happen to me. i have all the answers in life that i need. i don't have a wife or kids or pets. i am actually kind of surprised the people in RL around me haven't figured it out yet. they are starting to though. i drive one of the kids at school home every day. he looks like Freddy Mercury, he's in his early 20's. he said he has hepatitis c and has overdosed on heroin 10 times. he's not using heroin anymore. he has a baby. he's selling drugs at school. he says when he lived in Florida when he got off at the wrong bus stop he would get pistol whipped and robbed. he showed me a picture of a body on his phone that also got off at the wrong bus stop near his house and it was decapitated by an asian gang.

    i am actually kind of happy with how it's going with the kids at school. they all think that i am super-smart. every time they say that to me, i remind them that i am 50 years old and that it's life experience. and someday when they are 50 they'll know the same shit i do. but they are all super-poor. and like i said before they all have this hardened edge about them. but it makes me feel good they like me. it's funny because they know about my RV and parts of my life where i eat out of cans and had no running water. they know i am soft, yet accept the situation i am walking into. so i've earned their respect. one of them even asked me if i wanted to join his church.

    it's a brave world. i will need to be alert and careful. we all can't live comfortably like a shut in forever right? ..i'll be bored in my RV. i took a lot of books. i am going to really start educating myself. no more bullshit. i'll be like Good Will Hunting. learning things makes me happy. ..i'll keep you guys posted if you want. just post something here and i'll reply and let you know what's happening if you want.

    ..to be continued
