3 months and 21 years

It’s hard to believe that we’ve been at Sahalee full-time for just 90 days. It seems so natural, like we’ve been here our whole lives. Our 16 years in Florida now seem very much like a sweet tropical dream- Just a little blip on our personal time travel continuum.

Out the window

Missed opportunity by not taking pics of the Conestoga wagon passing through American landmarks, but here’s a couple I snapped during my shift in the Saturn through Shreveport and Dallas.

We have liftoff!!

In bed at 2:30am and up at 6:00 for some final tear-filled farewells before our 7:00am departure, today is the day we’ve been anticipating all these months… Lots of mixed emotions, but we’re finally and enthusiastically on the road to fulfill our modern day Manifest Destiny.

New Mexico or BUST!!

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!!
