Unlikely. With unemployment at 25% I doubt they even bother prosecuting vagrancy any more. And a rig impounded will be sold to recover storage and impound fees, not to pay the parking tickets.
True as far as it goes, but when 100 cases a day show up in the court, they do take notice and start tossing cases. So while they aren't "checking the unemployment rate" - the fact is that the unemployment rate can and does effect prosecution. Which is why I chose the word "prosecuting" to begin with.Citizens complaining about homeless in their neighborhoods don't check unemployment stats first. When the city compiles complaints and tasks officers with addressing them, they don't check the unemployment rate.
The mainstream media simply parrots the "official" number - which is what at the moment? 5.5%? A number which certainly is total crap.As an economist, I can tell you that any number you toss around as the "unemployment rate" is worth it's weight in horse crap anyway. It's only a use is as a fear mongering tool for our entertainment news media.
No 4wd for American market yet. I would rather have the Ecoboost (Transit only) that is available now, then the diesel. Lower operating costs, more torque works with gas anywhere in the world. Plus factory option for second alternator and battery. Quigley is working on 4WD conversion option, but may price it out of reach for most.I too am intrigued by the Transit and Transit Connect but either will have to be 4WD with a diesel.
This thread rocks.
Yepp... I agree.Surprisingly accurate. I would say that most of the people I have met/meet on the road are not on forums and only 50% have a blog or FB page generally for family reasons. I think the OP falls into the large percentage of people who are just 'out there' enjoying themselves. He is doing his thing and it is right for him as he stated from the outset. For everyone you know or read about 'out there' travelling there are a dozen more like them with no blog and no trace.
Reading some of the reply's here it does make you wonder why you bother writing anything at all and I have often thought of scraping my blog and just doing what we do. My forum activity has certainly decreased in the last 5 years because it does often seem to be a useless drain of time, resources and energy.
Shame really as a lot of experience and good info walks right out of the door because of unintelligent, spurious, narrow minded and often envious comments/remarks which you feel you have to answer or justify. Each time adding to the weight of the argument of 'why do I bother posting' and eventually the inevitable.
Good for you!That's our plan!
Seen too many people not make it to 60 and don't want to go out that way.
