Smile Counting the days

We're counting the days to our expected departure from the farm to this new adventure of full-timing. Planning for it all has been overwhelming at times, but as our daughter says, "It's like eating an elephant--one bite at a time." All that "stuff" that we thought we must hang on to is getting easier and easier to let go. Family was here and took loads off our hands. Legal changes are in the works. And the excitement grows.

Its interesting how many x-farmers & ranchers we have met who did exactly what you're doing .... "selling the farm" sorta speak and getting out for a major dose of R&R ... So deserving !!!
Welcome to our crazy life style .... and let us know how its going ....
And maybe we'll just run into you guys somewhere out there on some "country road" !!!
