The New Trent in 2009

Trent has been full steam ahead for the last year.

First, in 2007 he lived in a mobile home on my home inherited property in Walker. Then in February 2008 he bought a nice cute brick house in Livingston. His first house at 22 years old.

He moved in enjoying his new house. He also got engaged. And then like the flick of a light switch he broke off the engagement. Then having been in the house for 10 months called us up and said I selling my house and buying a 5th wheel camper trailer to work out of state. We were not shocked, because Trent has a mind of his own! Within 2 weeks of his house being put on the market it sold in December.

He did just what he said. He bought this 5th wheel camper trailer.

Here he is moving it out to the woods on my home property in Walker. It kinda got stuck. But all is well now. It is very nice. Small of course compared to his 3 bedroom house. But it has 2 bedrooms 1.5 baths. Really cute, cute. It's all 1 person needs temporarily.

But he is still at the same job, goes to school 2 nights a week, and has not ventured out of state for working, yet!

He never seems to surprise us when he calls and says "I'm going to _____."

I think it's great that Trent is trying different things in life. He is young and single, perfect time to explore.
The house was a cute house, I can see why it sold fast.
We also have a 5th wheel trailer. We were planning on doing a lot of traveling during retirement...that hasn't happened yet. (the traveling). I think we traveled more when hubby was working.

That's great that your son is doing all those 'adventures' while he is still young and can enjoy it ! His grandfather enjoys seeing Trent and his friends cruise by - - - he finds them 'entertaining.' Trent is a good man!

I think anybody who can buy a house at 22 years old is gonna be alright, whatever he decides to do! You must be so proud!

I am also glad your son is doing different things while he is still young and free, that way when he does get married he will be more ready to settle down. Loved his house. Can see why it sold so fast. My baby boy bought his first 2 BR 2 b house at 20. And sold it at 25 and bought a 4 BR 3 B. when he got married.
I can understand why you are so proud of him.

Gin, Sounds like your son is doing what he wants to do and that is going to be good for his life later on. Sounds like he is doing well for his age. I'm not sure about my almost 19 year old daughter. She seems to think she real easily.
