Sound and wind

I'm really into hanging out in quiet, suburban areas these days. Clean air, and QUIET! Even with my insulation, it's much noisier here than in a stick house.

I'm getting good at sheltering myself from the wind, and I noticed that it also makes it quieter too. I never realized how much sound travels with wind! If the wind is blowing at me, I can hear sounds a mile away upwind as if they were inside the van. When I find places away from the wind, or days when the wind is not blowing, it's so much quieter.

I've taken a break from working on the van or the interior. I have a new sink, and counter, and I put the counter in, but haven't plumbed the sink yet, nor gone shopping for cabinets to put under it. But even just having the counter is a huge help and makes life easier.

I'm busy with work projects now, including a fairly massive one, so I'm applying my workaholism to projects that I originally started vandwelling in order to have time/money to do. It feels great to actually make progress on those; it really feels like I'm moving my life forwards, and I'm enjoying that a lot.
