Moving Forward



It was a weird storm last night. The temperature hovered around the freezing mark. Snowfall varied by micro climate We received about 2 inches of wet icy snow. Twenty miles north, they were buried. Ten miles to the west, they had just rain. It was a difficult one for the weather service to predict.

Much to my surprise utilities stayed up at my house while going down all around me. Usually we are the first to lose power, phone and Internet.

Great, while writing this blog, the Internet went down for about five minutes. Sometimes the universe laughs at you.

Anyway . . .

Still on the mend. While my leg infection is starting to look a lot better, it still hurts a fair bit. It's not too bad during the day when I have things to distract me. It's at night when it bothers me. Sleep gets interrupted a lot. About the only thing I can do then is to get up for a couple hours and take some ibuprofen. My schedule is pretty messed up.

The van still hasn't sold. Maybe I'm too honest to be a sales person. I'm getting sick and tired of dealing with stupid people. That being said, I'm pretty sure it'll be gone in the next week or so.

Looking forward to our next adventure, whatever that may be. It is a good feeling to have all the gear ready to go for some off-grid camping. We could be out of the house and on the road in short order. That thought makes me happy. Eventually we'll have another, larger, sailboat. You can't drive to the Bahamas.

  1. It always amazed me when folks ask the year and the price, when BOTH are listed in the ad.

    1. And that's only the beginning. Some of the silly trades people want to make amazes me.

    2. And then there are the Nigerian scammers who want to send you a big fat check for way more than the asking price, with instructions for you to send the difference back to them and their "agent" will be in touch to ship the vehicle to West-Crapholistan. Someone tried that one on me with a 150$ fridge I had listed on CL. It was good for a laugh.

    3. That's funny. I thought the whole Nigerian scams were silly. Who'd fall for that? Well, the husband of my lovely wife's co-worker did. Cost him $10,000. He had to sell his motorhome. Idiot.

  2. Will keep my fingers crossed for you. And the invite still stands if you head south. (Momlady)

    1. Yeah, motorboats aren't nearly as much fun.

  4. We're having trouble selling Mom's car too. People who call about it, then promise they will be there this afternoon / this weekend and don't show up. Call them back - no pick up. Frustrating that.

    Hope you get the leg issues ironed out - we sure tend to take good health for granted.

    1. Yeah, selling the vehicle thing is like having a part time job that doesn't pay.

      Legs are slowly getting better, but keep waking me up at night. That is sure annoying.
