the Trash vitae

Trash is the editor-in-chief of an independent Colorado micro-publisher/ design studio. I dabble in digital photography, the lost art of film image making, and guerilla digital video. DrMAC Studios specializes in books and videos on self-reliance, gardening, dumpster diving, urban foraging and living off the excesses of others.

tiny home

Given my age and the health of both myself and Mrs Trash building a moveable tiny home from scratch is impossible. That is why we went looking for an alternative. Something already built with a floorplan we could enjoy for a long time. We settled for a 37 foot 5th wheel we aptly named Clara.

Clara is a dream come true as we no longer need to worry about where our retirement will be.  We can just hook it up to the truck and go. While I am still working we can rent a furnished residence for a few months, work, save some money and then hitch up and go elsewhere.  Right now we are looking at leaving Colorado before winter sets in and go somewhere warmer. If it doesnt work out not to worry we can always rent a place and put Clara in storage at 100 bucks a month.
A tad bit of security for our  senior years.

I dont know why I waited so long to do this since Mrs T and I were not enjoying the homestead we spent 13 years building. On some body else's land. Screw the societal norms.  For once we are enjoying some life while deciding where we want to go next.

We spent some time on Sunday clearing out one storage unit and moving the remainder into the larger unit we already have for the kids and our excess.  That will now save us a hundred dollars a month.  More money for the kitty.  Minimize and enjoy.
