there was a guy at work in DC who lived on his boat his family didnt relocate with him...in the winter he stayed at work really late and watched TV in his office. i guess the boat was too damn cold...he showered at work also.
LONG long time ago up there the Washington Marina and many others along the Potomac were homes for many a DC worker.....in fact there was a story on the news about CIA types that CANOED across the Potomac river from the DC/Md/ side to the CIA Langley campus....for work every day....

not to mention all the marinas here in Florida.....

in many ways I wish I bought a boat and became a boat hippy here instead of a house....but then, no place for my CAR hobby....

makes sense to update this thread with the latest photo

this is from last weekend....so its been out inthe sun exposed for 1.5 yrs i believe the white marks to the right of the rear window are from the roofing paint used up top, there are no paint failures and it still looks really good. it has had no paint maintenance done to it what so ever...not even washings

My sis is about 13 years older than me, but just a couple years ago, about age 81 or so, she towed a very similar camper over the NW regions, covering many states.....by her SELF.....today she is age '82 going to be 83 soon enough, if I have my math right.....
