Roughing it in the Iowa bush country

Now that I’m essentially homeless and living out on the road again, I’ve decided to literally jump into the lifestyle. The first night to recall the old, “Driver’s Days,” I slept in my truck. But three nights later, I decided to practice some of the camping and bush craft skills I’ve been learning from YouTube videos. Since I brought my Bug-Out Bag with me, I decided to really rough it tonight and do some wilderness camping.

I found a really good spot in the Iowa fields. It was already cleared so I didn’t have to cut down any bush.


All those YouTube videos about how to survive the Zombie Apocalypse are over done. I didn’t need my sleeping bag after all.

I don’t think adapting to life on the road is going to be difficult at all. I could tell that others had used this creek before me… someone even left a few chairs..

Every now and then you luck up and “discover” a location where people are actually friendly and get along. Davenport, Iowa surprised me. I highly recommend the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Davenport.
