Packing our lives
Over the past month we have been packing up all of the things we don't use on a daily basis and taking care of little details here and there. Our car decided to break down a few weeks shy of the time we hoped to sell it and we ended up parting with it for a fraction of what we'd hoped to get if it was still running. This coming week will be the hardest though - or beloved cat, Edie, will be moving across town to a new home. She will be an entertaining and loving companion for the woman who is caring for her, but we are going to miss her a lot.
All of these things have been helping to liberate us and make our transition to a vagabond lifestyle a lot smoother. At the end of this month we will be packing up the rest of our things, and with the help of my awesome parents moving them to Minnesota to store in a bedroom for the next 2.5 years. From there we will be making our way across the eastern U.S. by train and mega-bus. Then the next chapter begins...
