2014 has been a tough year for Jeannie and I. Some health issues on my end started the new year off on a bad note. Luckily none of this turned out to be life threatening. But I had significant levels of pain and discomfort to manage. Most of that is behind me now.
On November 6th I had my knee operated on after dealing with 6-8 weeks of pain and mobility problems. Luckily this was handled via an arthroscopic procedure done in SLC by Dr. Cooper. All turned out well and I'll be back to normal soon.
After traveling for 6+ years full time, we've decided to ramp this back and dig some roots in somewhere. Determining where that special place is took 7k miles of traveling and thousands of more miles in the van looking at prospective places. The winner is Montrose, CO. So we're here now for an indefinite period of time. It was a 2k mile trek back across the country mostly on route 80. Except for a broken house water pump, the trip was uneventful and we had no travel issues. Weather was good too.
The goal is to look for a property that works for us. We like Montrose because it's near all the outdoor spaces we enjoy. And the balance of city and rural is just about right for us too.
The next challenge will be to sell the bus. Hopefully we can find the next owner that will enjoy it as we have over the years. Wish us good luck!
