When I leave this place I'll no longer have a permanent address and have no idea where I'm likely to be six months from now. I've been kicking the issue around with the post office folks, the Social Security pension folks, and generally finding things are more complicated today than I'd have expected.<br /><br />DLs and vehicle registrations, required automobile liability insurance, bank accounts, everything, are all nailing themselves down on the corners around us.<br /><br />The post office suggested a general delivery option, but the forwarding services there are expensive if a person thought of it as an option with duration. <br /><br />I suppose, reading the other threads, this isn't a problem for most nomads posting here because they either have permanent addresses somewhere, or they have friends and family who'll provide, either the illusion of a residence, or an actual physical place they call home.<br /><br />But most of my friends are old enough they might kick anytime and if I'm out of contact I mightn't hear until my mail dribbles off to nothing.<br /><br />Probably the problem's uncommon enough so's it doesn't apply to enough people to be worth discussing, but maybe a few others are scratching their heads about it, or have already figured out ways to deal with it all.
