|Pea sized hail covering the entire mountain for a wicked T-Storm!|
I am not dead yet. Forgive the massive delays here. I have been in mental contemplation mode for a while now. With the permits and the like, I've been somewhat put off. That is. I wish to comply, however, as I did not believe I was within the scope of them, I am a little miffed at having to draw up architectural plans for the Shed. Along with having to pay for engineering on my solar array posts.
This morning I have also learned that in the state of Colorado, when it comes to the season of freezing weather.... You cannot actually live in a tent even on your own land. Something due to the lack of heat. I was told that they come and haul you off to a homeless shelter for the evening.
Does this mean I need to purchase an RV/Trailer simply to set on my acreage to be visible for when the authorities drive by. Then assume Im staying in the RV and with its propane heat source... leave me be?
This whole simple living is become quite complex.
Does this call for an additional, Bleh?
The Update :
I've resumed putting up 6x6 post beams onto the Storage Shed. The building needs to be 'dried-in' within the next few weeks before it starts to snow. It is already 40s at night.
BTW. Worry not everyone! Im NOT roughing it out here! The tent (REI - 4 person Kingdom) is filled with all my storage unit goodies. Coffee table, 42in tv, blue ray player and electric kettle.
I've learned over the last month of having solar electricity that I only use 2-3 KWH a day. It was much less in the beginning but now I watch a couple movies at night and use the kettle a lot throughout the day. :) Plus run the TV as a cd player (for building the shed) during the day.
Basically, I have such an overhead of available energy that Im no longer concerned about winter. The panels are already in a winter orientation.
Keep well everyone! Thanks for the concerns!
PS. My dating life is even looking up. :) Maybe this Colorado move for a simple life will work out. (On the days when I want to just give up on the whole idea of finishing everything and just live on a trailer, I realize that you all are counting on me to finish. So I can't. Plus. Im not interested in living on wheels. )
