Unpredictability - Good for your health

Our modern life is based on organising an environment free from the unexpected. The house needs to be as stable and reliable as possible. The job as safe as possible. Nothing should break down. Nothing but what we predict, should occur.
This is the life of the zoo animal. Let's explore the life of the Nomad. Let's live the life of the Nomad.

Quite a muddy camp site

So the last post found myself in a farm site in Winchester.  I stayed there three nights then returned back to base, having done some useful work for the client.  I continued working for them from home and returned again last Monday evening.  It's not a bad journey - 81.5 miles according to the GPS.
It was raining heavily a good deal of the way and although this camp site is very nice and tranquil, it has no concreted roads or hard pitches.  So my poor transit van was sliding all over the place.  Here is a pic of the camp site and the van I would hope to trade my old transit van in for - after I win the lottery.

One interesting little thing was having to break up a fight between a duck and a rooster - the rooster getting the worse of it.

The guy I was working with was rather surprised when I told him where I was staying, and they suspect me of being some sort of hippy type character, dressed in suite and tie.
Next week I will be working from home again, but likely to have to travel back to Winchester Thursday or Friday.  I will most likely go back to this site, it's so quiet and not a light anywhere so completely pitch black at night.

I'm well over 40 days now without a cigarette.  Looks like I'll be travelling to the Connecticut for a couple of weeks in February.  This is something I'm looking forward to.


  1. Thanks - yes 45 days it's been. I've even been able to take up running again since quitting. Feeling much healthier.

  2. You don't want one of those !
    You might as well stay at home for all the outside world you would see. If you had trouble controlling your Transit on this muddy field think how much trouble you would be in with that heavy truck.

  3. I was wondering how he was going to get out. Really if I was to get something that size I would be more interested in a converted bus I think.
