... you no longer "hover" over public toilet seats.

You've actually considered sleeping in a pit toilet because of how much warmer it stays at night.

You've slept in a pit toilet, because of how much warmer it stays at night.

You refer to dumpsters as "the diners behind the store".

You look forward to a shower and clean underwear more than sex or climbing.

If you can find a shower, you don't worry about the underwear, either.

You don't look for a shower, anymore, for that matter.


I yield the floor....

When you no longer consider it being "on the road" but simply your life.

Others seem inspired by your stories, and see you as one "living the life," even though you sort of felt you were struggling pretty hard to make financial ends meet.

Everyone knows that dogs feel best when they have a job to do, right? You know you've been on the road a long time when you accept that one of your dogs jobs is that of being an organic miniheater. And you know he sees you in the same way, and is happy that you found another useful purpose beyond feeding and petting him.

Oh yes - I have had times when I thought the warmth of the Pit toilet was better than braving the cold run to shelter and stripping off the layers, but I also know the warmth fades, and it's better to brave the cold while recalling how luxurious the down comforter and Teddy the Wondehound organic mini-heater will be just a minute after the suffering of the transition occurs.

When staying somewhere with electricity and couches seems exciting and exotic.

I always thought it was called the deep discount bin in the back of the store.
As in 100% off.
