The days pass by very easily now. Some days are filled with construction projects, others with hanging around or going to town. Today I was able to go to the Lake Havasu Balloon Festival. Continue reading Adventures at RTR
I came to the RTR in Quartzsite to meet some new people, escape MN winter for a while, and enjoy the sense of community. Mission accomplished. The last 24 hours have been perfect. Continue reading Mission Accomplished!
So I’m sitting at home watching Netflix, and it just stops and spins. I check my phone and laptop, and sure enough, they can’t connect to the ‘net either. Enter Verizon JetPack! Continue reading Backup Internet Access
I am now officially and completely divorced! All of the loose ends have been tied up, and I am now free to live my life. Well, I’m practically broke (liquid assets anyway), but at least I can move on. Continue reading Officially Divorced
My truck got some new tires today. Since I won’t be able to afford a newer truck for at least a year, this one has to keep me going, at least for now. The rear passenger-side tire was loosing pressure at 5psi/day. I pretty much had it fill it up every time I wanted to drive the truck. Plus, with the AZ trip coming up, I really didn’t want to be dealing with tire problems. Continue reading Truck got a new set of shoes
BETTER THAN A DEALERSHIP!
I planned on owning this car for 10 years. I took care of it because I wanted to drive a really nice car for a long time. Life changed on me though, and I have to let this car go. I take great care of my cars, and it shows here.
Why is buying from me better than buying through a dealership? Continue reading 2014 Lexus ES 300h For Sale
The last 5 or so days have been really busy with work and personal life stuff. Today, although it’s technically Tuesday, has been a Saturday for me. Woke up early and rested, got what little work was waiting for me done, went and voted and was back home before 9am. Continue reading Ready to go
I’ve had on my todo list for a while a chore I wasn’t looking forward to: Switch my American Express Delta Rewards card to a “regular” American Express card that didn’t have an annual fee. The Delta Amex card had a $99/year annual fee, but it was worth it if you fly at least twice a year for the benefits it provided. However, I haven’t been flying, and I’m not planning on it, so that’s a waste.
While looking for other Amex options, I found they had a promotion running on a “Blue” Amex card with no annual fee, and 10% back on Amazon purchases made in the first 6 months, up to a $200 value. Yep, I’m gong to max that out! So instead of paying an annual fee, I’m going to be saving $200 on purchases. Sounds good to me!
When I’m out on the road, and life has settled down a bit, I’m really going to enjoy having time to cook. After all, one of the primary goals to living in the RV is to live a healthier life, and cooking real food seems like a novel idea towards that end.
Right now I don’t spend much time cooking because it seems like it takes a long time and it always feels like there’s something else, something “better” I should be doing. I can’t wait to have the free time so it doesn’t feel like I’m under that burden anymore.
I just received an informational packet from my healthcare provider, HealthPartners. If I do not change anything about my plan, the premium will increase from $192.15 to $296.01 / month. That’s a a 54% increase! Just to really sweeten the deal, there is no national coverage, at all. So unless I stay in the metro area, I’ll be paying the ‘out-of-network’ expenses on anything I need to have done. Not like I wouldn’t be paying for all of it anyways, this is a plan with a $6,000-or-so deductible, which essentially means it doesn’t pay for anything unless you’re ridiculously sick.
