2015 Travel BLOG

We are starting with a new BLOG this year.  We hope to begin our travels  Sunday January 11th.

We started building a new house by demolishing our old house Friday October 17th. It only took about 45 minutes to demolish and 6 hours the next day Saturday to haul it away. Then about 2 hours on Sunday to dig the foundation.

Although we have had cold weather, every thing fell into place and we now have a house totally enclosed, roof finished, wiring and plumbing roughed in and furnace in place.

We have been living in the motor home since the demolition. We have been down to -14F. We had a cleanout installed in the sewer so have been able to dump. We have to haul water from a neighbor across the street. We are going to see -20F or lower in the next 4 or 5 days.

we will try to post every day once we start. Will post our problems and progress as we get ready to leave.

    1. We will probably go through Texas on way home. Plan to go through South Dakota, Wyoming, Utah and Nevada on way to Arizona.

  1. I will be checking in from time to time. Be safe and get out of that weather ASAP! Glad you have seen good progress on the house. Seems like timing was OK for you to wire with Rod before time to leave.

  2. Hope David is doing well today. Stay safe and hope the wind dies down! It was windy last evening as we drove home from Asheville – gusts to 40 miles per hour.
