It has been years in the making but it has finally arrived. We packed up and left the Barnesville Campground. This has been our home for 5 summers now and it was a little sad knowing that we would not be back there.
It was a convenient place for us to stay. Right between Fargo where are kids are and Fergus Falls where Lisa's mother is. It was a short drive out to our undisclosed super secret location. We moved our access road and paved it, but even doing that we thought it might be a little steep and we had never tried to get our fifthwheel up that. So today was a "make it or break it" type of day. Lisa was filming for posterity.
As you can see that it wasn't a problem. Jim and Barb thought we would scrape the rear end and I thought that maybe the nose cap would touch the truck bed. Neither happened. We went down our road and entered our new driveway, again with no problems.
We got set up alongside our barn. We will continue to stay in the fifthwheel so that we could work on the inside of our cabin.
On a more personal note, I think this will be my last blog for awhile. I originally started this to share with people our adventures, the places we have discovered and the funtimes we have had. I had hoped to inspire people to get out of their comfort zones and explore this great country of ours. I know we did. But since we have no travels in the works until maybe next summer, I think that this blog would get boring. I don't plan on cutting Lisa's leg with a chainsaw every month for entertainment value. Unless she lets me.
So if you really have a hankering to hear about our silliness, you can always go back and start from the beginning. There are 239 posts in all. And don't worry, I will update everyone on the house as we continue to work on it. It may just be monthly rather than weekly.
So glad your "move" went okay. Lots to keep you busy this winter. Stay warm. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks. You guys also.Delete
Good job getting the beast in. I didn't think I would blog again, but I still do, maybe once a month or so. I actually like going back and reading it again. There's always FB :)ReplyDelete

Thanks for the compliment. I hope it doesn't go to my head. Whoops, too late.Delete
Glad the driveway worked just fine. Looks like a beautiful fall developing. I will miss the witty blogposts. Looking forward to the home updates!ReplyDelete
I will save my wit for your blog then. Don't bother asking Jim and Barb where we are at because I arranged to have their minds erased. It was easy. Just a few beers and that's all it takes.Delete
We had the same fears on our driveway...especially the part about hitting the rails. We go from 10% up to a crest past level within 10 yards. We didn’t hit either. I’ll bet it feels good to be onsite.ReplyDelete
It does feel good to have a home base. Ask me again in January.Delete
You better continue blogging keeping us all updated on the house progress as well as your misadventures. Besides the way your mind and body is deteriorating you will need to go back and read it to see what you have been up to!ReplyDelete
What? I'm not blogging anymore? My poor arthritic hands need a break.Delete
