    We have been forced to live in cab of pickup truck this past month. long story for later. Bottom line; priority is #1 sanitation, #2 lights for after sundown, and lastly battery management.

    despite my background ther is a learning curve especiaally coping with medical condition. The medication to help my condition simply made it worse. I can’t stand up and keep falling over. Going to doctor every couple of days ties us to this area.

    I am keeping notes and hopefully can post more details later. i am limite4d to 30 minutes per day at library computer.

    http://www.minimalintentions.com/ this friend of mine wrote some articles about how he lived from his truck/van. The first year he owned his lot. He then shows in some articles there how he built a 20′ diameter geodesic dome. I’ve been in it many times and it is very comfortable. If you count the trampoline it has near 400ft2 of space. Though the floor is around 350ft2 of space. His electric bill is small, usually greatest in summer when he uses the window unit a/c from time to time.
