Community

Probably the biggest change for us in making this move was leaving behind our precious Space Coast community after 16 mostly sunny years.

"Aren't you excited????"

That’s what everyone keeps asking… Now, it’s 24 hours away from shoving off, and I’m thinking, “If by excited you mean a complete basket case, then YES!!”

Let's get cookin'

Following the suggestions shared in Vivint’s tips for moving, we are doing our best to “come up with some creative meals using only what’s left in our fridge and pantry.”

Cocoa to Cuba

We’ll be loading up in just one week. Still much to do before we pull chocks, but we’re getting there. One task now scratched off our to-do list was to plan the driving route from east to west…

So far away…

We’re three weeks out from putting this Big Top Circus on the road, and I’ve been completely hands off of the operation over the past few days while I worked on some very meaningful farewells to dear family in MD and PA. (Well, I ordered our new composting toilet on-line, if that counts.)

The check is in the mail

Well we finally did it!! We decided to go with the Super Ger Yurt from Groovy Yurts, it will be delivered in June.  We have an amazing amount of work ahead.  Time to start liquidating the vast majority of our possessions from this materialistic life that we have grown accustomed to, it was great while it lasted but it’s time to get back in touch with our true selves!!  We need to start working on plans for our deck that the Yurt will go on.  Then we need to build the platform that will go under the Yurt on the deck.  Other things that need to be done include getting the plans ready to build an outhouse, find a good stove that we can use to stay warm, figure out how we will have internet connectivity as our workplace is being awesome and giving us the opportunity to work remotely, plus many more things that I am sure will pop up as this transition continues to take shape!!  Feel free to leave your suggestions, thoughts and advice below!!

 

The Crash

I guess we aren’t going anywhere now. While we weren’t upside down in our house, we felt lucky to have decent jobs, food on the table and we were surrounded by foreclosures.  We may be better off than the majority at this point, but we certainly couldn’t afford to move.  Well, Florida aint so bad let’s hang out a couple years and then head back to the mountains!!

 

 

West Meets East

First truck (all the way from CO), first house, in the same shot… Worlds collide. 🙂  No doubt young love was in full  bloom!  Florida is beautiful, let’s buy this house with all the fruit trees in the yard, get married on the beach,  hang out for a couple of years and then head back to the mountains.  The best laid plans right……I mean who woulda thunk a couple of mountain kids would own a house with Fruit trees in the yard, certainly not us!!
