I'm not complaining, really...it makes me feel *autumn like* and a bit housebound cozy. And I don't get that often down here. But the clay...the rain...it's just such a pit outside :o( Almost makes me think cementing the entire "yard" is a better idea than leaving grass here and there.
We are trodding away with the camper. Moved several things down back over the weekend. I checked out some necessities and here's where the rubber meets the road. I think given the 'necessity' of it, I could do a well-built (and prettied up) critter-secure outhouse. Maybe. I think.
But the bathroom in the camper is a no go. Good grief that thing is TINY. Now, I can use it for storage...I'd love to take it apart and put shelving in and go for a nice pantry!
But no, no, just standing in there gives me the willies. I'm too claustrophobic for that. Seriously. (One time I poked my head under my mother's desk to connect a computer cable and liked to have hyper-ventilated myself!)
Now there's a nice camp potty...but that looks like a child's training potty. I'd laugh myself hysterical trying to consider using that one. And you have the stand-by 5-gallon bucket with seat attached. I just don't know that I could make that work, either.
And I want to go off-grid :o(
And I dare call myself a homesteader :o(
I've got issues, folks. I mean, I have to work out the cooking yet -- until I get the lean-to built up. And I have to work out heating, such as it is here in MS, but they are calling for a real old fashioned winter this year. But the potty...this thing just has me all bent out of shape.
Practicalities in front, it has to happen. I just have to get over it and put something together. There's no two ways about it. And before you ask, of course I've been camping before. And I always manage to find 'real' bath facilities when needed. It's just part of my requirements.
Stop smirking -- I'm determined to make this off-grid camper cabin a go. What I might lack, large as it is, in potty preparedness, my determination will more than conquer. I'm stubborn past the bone.
Today we'll have some school in the camper. We moved a bunch of school things back there. I need to take the small dry-erase board with us to put up. And I get cell service back there -- we can use the computer on days it's needed.
