the short term plan

i have to be out of my spot in less than 2 weeks, this is cool because it's giving me another chance to be even more prepared to hit the road. i want to stay in my city until at least october first as that will allow me to have the funds i need, so that leaves the question of september. while i don't need a "place" since i live in my van, my neighbor terri has insisted that i should crash with her until i'm ready to leave. so, that's what i'm gonna do. it'll give me a place to get organized, and a place to sleep while i get my van checked out and all ready to roll. also, i'll be helping her with the rent which she really needs.
i don't know what to do about and address when i leave. i suppose i'll just pay all my bills online, but i don't know about personal correspondence. maybe my mom will be able to forward it to me wherever i may roam. what do you think mom? i've had a pretty heavy amount of letters coming from a certain institution in PA and i don't want that stream to be interrupted. i would just keep my po box and forward it somewhere, but the post office where i have my box is closing! on september 30th. yet another sign.
work has been better, the money is ok, and next week there is a huge convention in town which should give us a fairly large turnout.
as the weather shifts toward fall, my creaky gears are slowly engaging.

Sounds like you don't know for sure where "next" is. Know that you have a place to crash in DC.

Take care,

For postal mail on the road this place will scan it all into email for you for as low as $10 a month.

Of course I'll forward your mail to you. I think Post Offices have a "General Delivery" option that can be used even if you don't have a regular address in the vicinity. We should check that just to be sure.

I love you.

OMG, I am on the edge of my seat here, waiting for your big plans, no hurry, however. Any news from the green faerie bug? Love you. Pan says "hey".
