Slide outs?

What did you buy to pull it?

Do you have a plan for sex in the shower?

Edit: Some of these may not make sense. I see that I have not been following your adventures close enough.

Good luck with the sell. Don't know about your market but it's still hot here.

Didn't you say you have a 17 year old?  How did all this go down?

Did you have a realistic idea of what to expect?

I guess I can see the appeal, or was it resignation?

For how long will this adventure last?

What happens  if you have a fight?  I used to go into my study, while she sulked. I hate sulking

(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((0)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

My last real adventure was when I was 53 and single again..: I was staying with an old friend in Cambridge .(England) After a couple of weeks, she decided it would be a real good idea if I went back packing in Ireland. So I did that, also in Scotland. Turned out it was indeed a great  idea. Something I recommend  to anyone to do alone, once.

Because I had been carrying an A frame pack for a months, I was over an inch taler whenI got back. 

Lesson learned: under no circumstances travel  12, 000 miles to stay with 'the big ex' you haven't seen for 30 years!. After a week, I wanted to push her down the stairs. Didn't remember her being that bossy. Probably blinded by the testosterone.  Plus, my memory softens bad experiences. Violin

Glad my memory doesn't play tricks that way.  Just for myself, I wouldn't travel twelve feet to stay with any of my exes.  This is for self-preservation, as most of them would like to see me in hell with my back broken.

Well, that one can be excused; she was my first, love at 20.

Certainly have no such begin feelings towards  my ex wife. Fair dinkum, I wouldn't  piss on that bitch if she were on fire.  Diablo

Yes, I have a 17 year old who lives with me part time. He seems fine with it, though he only has to deal with it on the weekends. We simply did not want to live in our house while it's on the market - what a hassle. As we were buying a travel trailer anyways, it seemed a better option than finding a short-term rental in an area that is notoriously expensive.

In the most optimistic scenario, we'll be living like this for another six weeks. Realistically, it's probably more like 8-9.

We don't fight. After both of us being in extremely dysfunctional first marriages, we've figured out how to get along.

Don't fight? That's great to hear.   I understand about first marriages. Mine left me a bit gun shy. I did look, after ten years, half heartedly, but I guess not willing to take that risk again. Probably a poor choice in the long term.

I truly hope things keep working out  for you.

Is this out of choice or necessity?

If out of choice, why?

I can't imagine not having a nice bed, hot showers and my own space/bathroom etc. unless I had to go without them.
If you're frightened of dying, and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. But if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the Earth.

Are you on hook ups? Some places we looked at here in California want as much money for a space with power and water (and sanitation) as a decent hotel would charge. As a result, we usually dry camp.
If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.

Yes, we are. The nightly rate here is high, but month to month is discounted almost 65%.

Well, we have all of those things - queen bed, hot shower, bathroom, etc. An abundance of space we don't have.

It's not out of necessity in the sense of having no other options. We needed a place to live temporarily. We prioritized preserving savings.
