Long time no post, eh? Well, I’ve been working on a few projects to help me earn a location-independent income so I haven’t had as much time to update this bad boy as I’d like.
The troops were getting restless in the comments of the last post and I actually had to delete a few comments that crossed the line, which bring me to the age old question ” how do you avoid the crazies when you’re living in a van down by the river?” It almost seems rhetorical right?
I’m realizing that it’s not the 60’s anymore and that in 2007, 4 out of 5 people you meet on the road will either stab you or try to steal your bucket of KFC.
So aside from installing a gun rack (I don’t even own *a* gun, let alone many guns that would necessitate an entire rack), we have a few different options…
A taser. I would love to reenact “Don’t tase me bro” at every truckstop where people think it’s ok to make eye contact.
An eye patch. People are scared of pirates and usually avoid them – especially if they also appear to have scurvy. Starting tomorrow I’m not eating any more citrus.
A dog. We both love dogs, but I have allergies to them which might be a bad idea in such close quarters. Plus they poop.
Van alarm. This one is pretty much a given already, but I’d like to rig it for 2 settings: screaming banshee or Cher – depending on intruder type.
Then again, an eye-patch wearing Shredder next to a pooping dog with “Believe” blaring in the background might actually attract the crazies.
Now if you excuse me I have to go practice my nunchuck skills.
