I don't have to be afraid, my words are bullets
contemplating our next move
What’s up, y’all!
The other day, gnob and I were talking about our future plans, and I reminded him about my sister’s upcoming wedding in November, in Louisiana. He revealed to me that it was his goal to be able to drive there for the wedding because we’d completed all our tasks here in Oregon.
That is not far away, folks.
Especially if you take into consideration the travel time, and we are definitely taking that into consideration. Last time we drove across the country, we ended up spending far too much time driving and not nearly enough time enjoying the scenery.
So if we allow ourselves two weeks for travel this time around, that will give us just over 10 (TEN!) weeks to get both project vehicles sold and our house on the market.
Let the countdown begin.

Why are you headed to Louisiana, not Costa Rica?
Some of you may not know about the Louisiana detour. It has floated in and out of our Costa Rica plan, but it is now back on the schedule.
Since my family lives in Louisiana and I don’t get to see them that often, we’re going to be temporarily moving there before moving to Costa Rica. There is a lot of required paperwork to be completed by the United States government before we can apply for the Costa Rican rentista visa. And we can’t go ahead and do it now because Costa Rica will only accept documents that have been processed within six months of the visa application.
Since we won’t apply for the rentista visa until we are actually boots on ground in Costa Rica, we need to wait until right before we leave to get the paperwork completed. And we all know how quickly government agencies process paperwork, so I expect that part to NOT go quickly.
But that’s fine by me, because I’ll get some time to visit with my family before we leave the country.
Ten weeks is going to fly by, so we’re going to have work harder than ever to pull it off - but it’s an achievable goal. Maybe we can even do it in eight weeks and have a whole month to meander the United States again.
Yes, it’s going to be hard, but the best things in life are always on the other side of some hard work. Finally getting to Costa Rica after three years of dreaming and planning will be worth whatever hell the next couple of months are going to put us through.
(Remind me of that when I’m whining about all the hard work a few weeks from now.😁)
See you next week!
Video of the Week
We’ve still got a bit of stuff to get rid of before we can move, so gnob’s been cleaning out the shop this week. He decided to make something new out of some old parts he found lying around.
