Time to pack and go!

It’s time to pack and go, sort of.  Actually, we’re very ready to get back on the road to our next destination.  We started to begin packing up today and then we realized we don’t really have much to pack.  I’ll need to get our trailer from the storage lot on Fripp Island and pack up a little in the house, but then we’re done.  More than anything, we’re just ready to go again and see what’s next.  We’re also happy that the next stop will be a little less remote.

Some of what we brought never made it out of the plastic tubs we have them in.  They held things we just didn’t need yet.  We’ve also managed to downsize just a tiny bit more.  It’s kind of weird because normally packing means going room by room and is kind of a long process.  Now it’s 2 or 3 hours to get totally packed and ready to go.

Believe me when I say I’m not complaining.  It’s just weird to have so few things to pack.  In fact, it’s nice to know that it’s a relatively small, easily managed task that won’t physically damage either of us.  We have been talking about getting a slightly larger trailer because we think it would be a good idea to buy a scooter as a type of second vehicle at some point.  But, that’s a goal for later on.  Maybe someone will read our blogs and be so impressed that they want to donate those.  🙂  Or maybe not.

We are not alone on this crazy adventure!

One of my biggest concerns, when we set out to live in vacation homes,was the US Postal Service. Years ago, people could detach from their homes and hop all over the world by setting up temporary addresses through UPS stores, FedEx stores, or just good old fashioned PO boxes.

Well, the lovely IRS doesn’t allow such a carefree existence anymore. We, as US citizens, must have a home address if we are law abiding, tax filing, humans.

So, we set out to be adopted. Well, no, we didn’t even have to search. When we explained our plans for adventure, my crazy awesome cousins offered to be our home base. Not only did they offer their address, they offered mail forwarding services. Seriously!

Meet Phil & Keri Igney

They are the best partners to have in this journey!! We love them so much and their mail handling abilities far surpass those of the USPS!

Thanks for letting us “live” with you!!
