Trailer Livin

Many people ask me where a I plan to live when I’m in North Dakota. It’s a good question, since there’s a housing shortage and if you do happen to find an available place, the rent rivals a Manhattan penthouse. The solution? A trailer park.

I never thought I’d want to live in a trailer park at the age of 29 (okay, maybe briefly at 16 when I pictured myself running away from home and doing anything and everything to disappoint my parents (sorry again about that lovely parents)) but to be honest, now I’m kind of excited. I picture myself in cowboy boots, kicking up dust, and carrying a can of Budweiser as I waste hours sitting around in a fold-up chair people watching. Could be fun, right? Sort of a Friday Night Lights meets Into the Wild.

Those same lovely parents have offered to lend me their TrailManor camper and tow it the 1,500 miles from Mt. Shasta, California to a trailer park in Williston, North Dakota. I’m attaching photos of it. Any name suggestions? I was thinking Thelma (from Thelma and Louise), Lucille (because it sounds right), or Tammy Taylor (FNL for life!).

  1. Hi Blaire!! You trailer trash you!! Haha. I’m so excited for your adventure!! Your new place looks like fun, but I think you need to downgrade to some pabst blue ribbon..Budweiser might be a little high class.

  2. Welcome to the wonderful world of “oilfield trash”! I hope your trip to NoDak goes smoothly! I had to come home to take care of some business, but will be back in ND in about 3 weeks. Hope I get a chance to meet up with you when I get back! Take care!
