VW Van update, fall and halloween photographs - living in a van and my new crypto allocations...steemCreated with Sketch.

A pumpkin patch for today:

If reading this on a smart phone zoom up the quality of camera is fantastic.

I picked up the van this week and test drove it but it ended up mounting a tow truck a few times:IMG_20171021_141212-01.jpeg
This time was the shifter bolt broke and needed a $700 USD tow (free because of BCAA membership) and a 3/4 inch bolt:
IMG_20171021_095213-02.jpeg
Here are some beautiful fall pictures from my test drive from Alberta to British Columbia and back do zoom in if you can:
IMG_20171022_102545-01.jpegIMG_20171022_120057-01.jpeg
The above picture has a larch tree in the center of it, they are mistaken in the summer for pine or spruce trees but look dead in the winter though it is just their leafs turn color as do broad leaf trees.
Here it is zoomed up:
IMG_20171022_120044-01.jpeg
And a mountain view full with the yellow ones being larch trees:
IMG_20171022_111953-01.jpeg
IMG_20171022_111947-01.jpeg

So now the van still needs tweaks as the shifter is still having troubles so I am thinking of going back to Calgary to have it finished and or leaving it in storage in Seattle until spring and fly myself somewhere warm.

For those following my crypto currency and corporate capture messages here is my latest allocation of investment mix and my past mix with this link here.

My current investment breakdown:
60% Bitcoin
9.5% Ether
15% Steem
15% Fixed (gold/silver/land)
.5% GameCredits

Diversifying a bit more:

...and some more:

Here is Cameron who put in a state of the art auxillary battery pack seen in background where fridge was. I moved to a portable state of the art fridge:

And last a few more traveling pictues this is tonight in Seattle WA USA:

Nice fall shot:

When my car becomes old and junk @greenman

Thx very much for the post, love the pictures... but next time clean your bike before putting it on the VW , lol..
You have also some gamecredits... It was my first ICO and crypto investment... since then it was not that good... but I will keep them.. What decided you to invest in gamecredits?

·

I expect at one popular game will add credibility to their credit system eventually.

·
·

Let's hope you are right about that.. Do you play games on mobile?

Hello @greenman,

Extraordinary photography & excellent investment guide as well. VW Van with Solar Panel & Electric Bike revealed your knowledge of Eco friendly life style. One more thing, your vivid view about investments made respect in my mind about your prospective about the future.

Finally, extraordinary good article with a lot of topics.

Thanks

Time to off road fun ;) Welcome

~@mywhale

OMG,loved this picture

·

Yes fluffy nice

Very solid blockfolio.

When did you first invested in Bitcoin? And what about chocolate coin? Are these about to get a nice pump?

·

I think it was early fall 2013 as my first 100 BTC were $165.00 each.

·
·

Awesome. I hope you were able to cash in a bit on the first bubble.

·
·
·

Yes, I did get my original investment out and more. I believe the money masters are pumping and dumping to scare the decentralized distributed coins away from their new hands and into theirs. I feel we will see 20-40% corrections that return to all time highs for the next few decades.

Let me say it, you have a very exciting life!

Bitcoin...price is rising as like as jet aeroplane.DQmNksyQGcgDtPUnybx81Pt7SaMkpQ5yiWt3UnDu1GFTyGx.png

FREEDOM, on the back of the VAN. It takes some modifications to have the VAN up and running. But what a result so far, including the panels in the roof.

The fat bike looks good as well.
