Welcome to the new hangout! So much news!
The biggee? We have indeed secured the rather large sum we need to fund a move, a car, and a temporary home. We’re headed for the Adirondacks permanently! Preparations will begin next week to sell the furniture, pack up the dog, and hop in a northbound truck. We’ll be amidst the woods and waters by Summer. I’m celebrating with this new blog/website home.
This past weekend we drove up through Vermont and over to New York to shop for an RV (a nice big one with good heat and insulation) to use for temporary housing. We’ve even already packed a ton of stuff from the NYC house, and taken much to the curb. Soon, we’ll start selling and giving away furniture.
It’s a beautiful plan, and we’re plenty excited. The RV temp home will give us some time to simply enjoy ourselves – a way to head for the mountains immediately, have some fun, improve the property, and get the land in shape before we build. Within a year or two, we’ll start talking about raising a proper house.
Of course, with this turn of events … I am no longer a “City Mouse.” Thanks for following me over to my new blogsite home. City Mouse/Country House will remain online as an archive, but I will not be posting there any longer. You’ll find me hanging out here from now on. I think it’s pretty awesome. Please do hang out and explore the site. Links to other pages are at the top – I’m looking forward to adding more content, but I have a few things up already.
Sorry to mention it, but yeah – Adjust your bookmarks accordingly. I’m here now.
I suspect there are several months of juicy blog posts coming up. Stay tuned – my next post will feature the fruit of our recent shopping trip – photos and news about the RV contenders.
We’re Adirondack Bound! That’s better than a poke in they eye with a sharp stick, huh?
