This move is going to be bittersweet. Today Vince is listing the tractor and RTV for sale. We had thought about keeping the RTV for just in case we buy a little weekend place on a lake somewhere but that’s so “maybe” right now that it isn’t worth paying to move it and then deciding to sell it there if we never buy a place where the RTV would be used. I love the RTV and will hate seeing it go. Selling the tractor kinda symbolizes that we’re no longer trying to homestead. The truth is that this lifestyle is never something Vince wanted. If the decision about where we live was 100% his to make, we’d be living in a condo at the beach somewhere but, thankfully for me, he understands how I feel about family. He will be happy in the new location because there are things to do there – the things he enjoys doing.
As happy as I am to be moving, I can see today that there will be a few tears.
We’re making progress though – getting those two things sold will be a nice first step.
