Let's see...what would make our life even more complicated than it is at this point?
We are in the home stretch of prepping to leave on a one year RV sojourn around the US, tying up loose ends to leave work, and dotting all the “I's” and crossing all the “T's” as far as preparing to move out of our short term leased apartment. We are also dealing with semi-emergency dental work done on an impacted root canal I've been saddled with.
Well, how about purchasing a cabin!
Yup, as if we didn't have enough on our plate we have found a wonderful little classic 30's era cabin in the beautiful and historic Columbia Gorge; made an offer on it which was accepted, and are in the process of closing on it which should take place if all goes well just about the exact time that we are scheduled to leave for our trip.
As if things weren't stretched thin as they were...
Nope, we seem to relish the opportunity to immerse ourselves in as much to do as possible.
We just couldn't resist it. We walked around the property and were mesmerized by the amazing vista of the Columbia Gorge hills and the peaceful 1/2 acre lot on a dead end road.
It's also within walking distance to the historic town of Stevenson Washington. It was one of those "We are going to buy this property no matter what the issues are" and that's how you know you've found the right property. Normally I would poke into every corner of the lot and there is this huge "chicken house" in the upper back of the lot that's full of stuff. It's surrounded with ivy and hard to get to but I figure it'll be a blast poking around in there. (We'll let you know how that pans out!)
We're now in a flurry of getting everything in order so we can close and then descend on the property and get a bunch of things accomplished at once. That's how we roll. And to borrow a line from another couple who are in the process of selling everything and driving around in their RV with their Father and 2 dogs "Crazy don't have nothin on us!"
Their blog is here http://goinroadtrippin.wordpress.com You might visit and wish them well as they are struggling a bit. They bought a 1992 giganto RV "the blue banana" without driving it and are suffering a few consequences. We hope they sort it out!
