We have made the move and are on our way

Dear Family and Friends.

Dave and Sandy have an ANNOUNCEMENT.

This past year has brought some major changes to our lives. Dave retired on 12-31-06 (Sandy had retired in 1998) and in January we started a coast-to-coast trip of the southern US in our Lazy Daze Class C motor home. After our return to Minnesota on March 30th we started getting ready for a trip we had planned to the Pacific Northwest with our friends, Ron and Jane, from Scottsdale AZ. Between the two trips we made a life changing decision.

We had been looking for a smaller town home for the last couple of years with the knowledge that we would be spending our winters somewhere in warmer climates. With that in mind, we decided to sell our house and our Lazy Daze motor home shown below.

We put our town home on the market on June 12th and left for our trip to the Pacific Northwest on June 20th. Being aware of the slow housing market, we looked forward to a relaxing trip with our friends. Well, our house sold on June 28th with closing scheduled for August 31st. Upon our return home on August 3rd we had a lot of work to get done by the 31st. We had a huge moving sale and moved out of our house on August 29th with a lot of help from our friends. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without their help.

THIS IS OUR NEW HOME. We have gone from a 4,000 SF town home to a 450 SF motor home. It’s a 42 foot Tiffin Allegro Bus diesel pusher. For the past 2 months we’ve been very busy getting settled in our new small space and, so far, we’re still on speaking terms. We’ll leave for Arizona in early November and return to Minnesota in April. Jane, our friend from AZ, set us up on a blog site when we were with them on our summer vacation. We can make no promises, but we will TRY to update it every couple of weeks to keep you posted on our new life adventure.

Best wishes to all of you,

Dave and Sandy
