Again, thank you all for the big welcome.
Lynette, we are still in the Rapid City area. It's beautiful here and we've met some really nice folks and enjoyed seeing many of the sights.
We did the same as you. Sold the house and everything in it and retired into our MH. It just happened one heck of a lot sooner than expected. We put the house on the market on the 2nd of June, hoping
we could sell it by late September or early October. Well, we had an offer on the 4th and came to a deal by the 6th. After two hectic months of yard sales, home inspections, smoke and CO2 alarm inspections, MA Title 5 inspections (don't ask
), RV shopping, trips to the transfer station and just flat out giving stuff away we finally closed on the 5th of August having removed the last of our belongings from the house at 9:30 PM on the 4th.
After saying all the goodbyes to relatives and friends we were on our way to TX in our Jeep with a 7' x 12' Cargo Trailer containing all of our worldly goods in tow, to look at a 2005 Beaver Monterey we had been keeping an eye on for a few weeks. Arrived there on 8/10 and made the purchase by 8/19. As it turned out it was just what we were looking for and we are really enjoying it.
We'll start heading south in another week or so. We still have a few things to do up here. We'll probably start meandering (love that word) toward NM. Donna has always wanted to go there and for now, this adventure is more about her than it is about me. My profession allowed me to see much of the country while she was stuck at home.
Hope to see you all out there,
