T and Sarah Vacate Barstow

It is (beyond) time for Tango and me to move on, and now I know that we should move to Bishop - for so many reasons. Available jobs, low cost of living, lovely climate and surroundings... And my memories from being there with Mish that last day confirm what I should have figured out earlier: Bishop fits me.

In order to move, I need to pay for the registration on the RV, get a little work done on it to make it trip-worthy, buy gas for and during the trip, pay for cheap lodging here and in Bishop once we arrive, and be able to afford a deposit on a room or small place there.

Asking you, my friends, for help again is very, very difficult for me. While Tango is safe and has a good temporary home, I am literally just a few days away from sleeping at Desert Manna, a homeless shelter here in Barstow. It's still far too hot to stay in the RV. I have almost no money left ($116.51 as of right now), and don't know how I will get by here much longer, much less move with Tango to someplace where I can get a decent job and afford to be happy. [For months, I have been eating just one meal a day, spending $3-$4 dollars for it (thank you, Del Taco and the dollar stores), and haven't driven unless I've had to.]

If any of you are able to help, please know that the money will be put to good use - the good use of helping me to 'start fresh' in a new place where I can work, support myself, run, write, and make a good life for myself. And please also know that I will be forever grateful for your help.
