How are you at packing and moving?

You may have thought the wrong coast but there is a Big ol Military base right next to Tacoma named Fort Lewis back in the early years then they renamed Fort Lewis. Now they combined the airforce and army base to one big monster base called Joint Base Lewis Mcchord. We have a couple of navy bases too. We have the Bangor Nuclear Sub Base not far from Bremerton Worshington, they also have a big ship repair base in Bremerton. We also have a Naval air base at Whidbey Island up in the northern part of Puget Sound also a Navy Destroyer base near Everett Worshington. Yeah you cant swing a dead cat around here without hitting some sort of military installation.

Such peaceful, lovely sentiment.

Yeah they have the coasts covered, land borders seem more problematic. Too many Aberdeen places to count. Climate probably isn't as good at the one I thought of. Dad speaks of Manhattan sometimes and I have to remember he means Kansas. The way my mind works is like a PC with plenty of fragmented ROM but no RAM. In other words, its there but takes awhile.

Now if I can tighten the vise clamp on your noggin a little...

You know the easiest way to move the rod is with it all together. Hut hut...

I tell my friends, don't ask me to help and I won't ask you. Now I don't even move myself. There is no money better spent than hiring movers.

Good luck with your plans Rip. My Early years with the telephone co. convinced me I would never build a house. I just don't have the temproment to do it. I wish you well and hope you remain one of us here while work progresses.

We enjoyed Pugsy's build. We will gladly follow along with yours.

You guys are great.. Glad to have ya all on my side!!

Well today begins the Hurry up and wait segment. I have been waiting for the Escrow Company to move forward and get through this phase. so I can start getting bids on clearing and foundation work. I also have to send in my site plan for clearing before the rest starts

Someone gave me a warning about the coast! They said "Everyone out near the coast is on Beach time. That means up by noon and closed by 5. I had noticed this phenomena many times as I traveled up and down the coast. Late to rize, late to open stores and roll the sidewalks up by six. I might get real used to that time.. I am tired of running full steam from morning to night. So onward to endevour to persevere!

Well I thought I would give a christmas update. Things are moving and I am starting to feel the pinch to get this place ready to sell. I am finally all done with the real estate and escrow people, and now have the title free and clear on my new property! I have been trying to get the bids done on all the the stuff that needs to be done at the new place to get ready for the home push. I did hear from a contractor yesterday and he had a preliminary bid wich was right where I was hoping to be on those costs. the other positive part is he has worked with my builder and he also knows my banker. Ahhhh fodder for a conspiracy theory story.

I have a RE agent primed and chomping at the bit to sell sell sell my current place. I need to finish some deferred maintenance items and move the shop and 1/2 of the house by the 15th of January. Oh I also have to find another place to live till my new place is ready.. My God I can't believe the rental costs gone through the roof.

So far I have remained mostly calm during this process but this is not going to stress me out. I am keeping in control of the whole process and not letting any funny business done. After all My daughter is now a CPA with H&R Block.

Nothing has happened on the T. I need to start putting parts away and packed.
I have been concentrating on my back rehab and I am pleased with the recovery so far. I am back to the point I was before this back thing got me. I can almost walk a 1/2 city block. Although I am done for. Therapist is good and I actually lost a couple of pounds..

I thought I would add a couple pictures of the new digs. Just a couple of pics of the brush that will be removed and one picture from the view point at the bay side of the property..

The long strange trip has begun.

Its real good to hear that you're bouncing back OK and keeping your nose to the therapy grindstone, Rip. The move? Well... applause! I just don't know how you do it. Heres hoping for as few glitches n that as possible. May interim housing somehow turn out to be a less than gigantic challenge. We're here when you need an ear. Meanwhile, enjoy Christmas time. The T will wait, but you may have to promise it a treat for later.

Rip, good to hear that the PT is working for you. Keep up the good work on that front. Your new property has a great view. I hope the new place has plans for some large windows in that direction to capture them on a regular basis!


Merry Christmas to you and yours from me and mine!
Dave

Things are really moving now.
Will you rent close to the new house?
Easy to watch the construction this way.


Anyhow, don't stress about it, it will be done eventually.
Have a great Christmas and same to all of those following this thread.
