Day Thirty Four… A New Free Campsite Just Down the Road… 06/13/15

IMG 2578

Good Morning Folks… I didn’t get much sleep last night because someone’s dog was barking at 3am and 4am… I tell you, I know my problems in life… If these two problems could be solved, I would be a happy #camper… One is inconsiderate assholes… I have fixed that by going to all the #campsites that are considered #OffTheGrid and no one knows about… The only reason I stayed here was because it was only $5 but I wish I didn’t… It really wasn’t worth the shitty #night of sleep…

Second, I would just like to find a couple of companies that can provide me the basic technology and service without all the hoopla, lies and phone calls… These are the two main focuses on this trip for me… If I can cure myself of these two things, I will be the best guy to be around… I’m not blaming these things for my unhappiness, I’m blaming myself for not finding a solution to these problems resulting in unhappiness…

I’m making progress though… All this crap that has happened to me these past 3 weeks really pushed my temper… I had my breakdowns but am learning to deal with things better… Being completely alone has forced me to face these issues… I want to fix them before I can ever give myself to a family… I know in the state I am now, I can’t be a family man… Not enough patience… But this #trip is really teaching me a lot of tolerance and patience… So bring it on #Universe! Give me all you have so I can move on with my life…

I finally lost the tied on piece to my ladder… It still works though… You just have to be careful when you get to the top…

The #generator was working well again… I am looking into setting up a battery system that gives my cab #120Volts without turning on the generator… It will save me tons in gas, won’t be so noisy and I won’t have blown #breakers when it’s raining like I did last night… A #ParkRanger informed me that my generator was bothering someone last night… I apologized profusely and explained that the only reason I turned it on was because of the dog barking… A great thing about #TheMillenniumFalcon is when it’s noisy outside, you just turn on your generator and then you can’t hear shit… You just hear this nice hum…

So today was another chore day because I needed to research the #battery situation, touch up the #blog, find new #bike tires and download a #map #app that does not require any #internet like #AppleMaps does… I went to #McDonald’s again and worked on getting this crap done… It’s better I address it now so I can have fun later without having all of this stuff to do…

I did find a great app called #co-pilot but it took literally four hours to download… This app allows you to #navigate with no #CellService whatsoever… A huge problem on this trip is Apple Maps… It uses internet and cell service to operate… It’s fine when you are in your service coverage area but when you’re in a competitor’s area, it eats up all of your #DataRoaming which you don’t get much of to begin with…

Now the great thing about #T-mobile is they won’t over charge you… If your data roaming runs out, you can’t use it… It’s a pain in the ass but at least you won’t get slapped with a $278 bill like I did when I was with #Sprint driving from #L.A. to #Boston… When T-mobile cuts you off, you just call and buy 50 mega bites of more data roaming which is $15…  It doesn’t last long but hey, not everything is perfect… Regardless of how bad T-mobile’s coverage is, I commend them on not trying to take advantage of their customers by letting them go over their allotted source and billing them to all hell… At least they are trying to practice some sort of honesty, unlike that demon called Sprint…

So, one nice representative at T-mobile told me about co-pilot so I wouldn’t have to rely on data roaming… Even though it was a big pain in the ass #downloading, it’s going to save me a shitload of time and money… And you know how I hate to call these #CorporatePigs… So the less I have to interact with them, the better…

I also looked into a #BikeShop which I will have to go to after I leave my new #site and I looked into the battery situation… I have a good plan and shops mapped out to accomplish this… Unfortunately that app downloading took up all my time but yet I did get a ton of research done, so I’m happy…

I moved onto the next site that was literally 5 minutes away from #WoodfordStatePark… Here I am in the same vicinity, which I heard there is a great #lake around here and I don’t have to pay shit or listen to dogs bark… I love this RV for one main reason… Someone pisses me off, I just get behind the wheel and move… No more dealing with inconsiderate assholes… The Park Ranger wanted me to stay another night, which I contemplated but why put myself through that again? I don’t like the #RVParks because there are too many screaming kids and pets… Most of them are really #commercial also, so it’s definitely not my cup of tea…

Here’s my view at the new site… I love it here already.. It’s on #KellyRoad Woodford… It was easy to get to and I parked in the first spot I saw… I will explore further by foot tomorrow.. No more unnecessary exploring in the RV… No more mammoth mistakes like I have already made… From now on I will take the first good thing I see and explore on foot for a better situation, if need be…

I feel like I have made some real progress here… I’m actually kind of glad that breakdown happened and if #AAA doesn’t cover it then I will just have to do some side work on my trip… No biggie and I don’t care what happens with it now… A huge step in my self proclaimed #therapy… The old #TravelingMac would have dwelled on it for weeks… No more of wasting energy on things I can’t change but I will not forget this… And apart of my #journey is to figure out how to deal with these #Corporations… I don’t care if you all think I’m nuts, this has gotten out of control and they have way too much control… Someone has to start making a stand and I will be one of those someones…. Goodnight.

Tell the Traveling Mac what you think... be nice now...
