The temp is hot, scenery is beautiful

Buenes Aires National Wildlife Refuge in southern Arizona.

I've been here for almost a month now, and what a place!

First, after a couple days in a hotel I found an apartment on the southwest side of town. Got moved in, not that that was too difficult - I don't have any furniture, just camping gear. Two camp tables, two camp chairs, a couple frying pans and one small pot. A few cooking utensils and plastic forks, knives and spoons, and paper cups, bowls and plates. Heheh, at least doing the dishes is easy work. But, no bed or bedroom furniture, or anything else. Well, I do have two computers and my instruments.

I'm in Tucson!

A beautiful Arizona sunset.

Well, I made it! A 3 day drive in a Ford Ranger, not the most comfortable way to travel, but I made it. And what a trip -

I left the Seattle area (last wednesday) and headed east expecting to spend the first night in the Twin Falls, ID area. I got to about 30 miles west and found a campground for the night at about 9:30pm. As I was unpacking a few things for the night I pulled out of the truck what I thought was my tent, only to discover it was a dining canopy. Shoot! What happened to the tent?

Wow, what a week - house sold

June 3, 2006

My F250 4x4 at Manastash Ridge, Washington.

We put our house for sale last week, went on the listing last thursday evening. Friday morning we had two full price offers, one with an escalation clause. Sold it friday for more than we were asking for. Woohoo!

As some of you know I am in the process of moving, relocating to be exact, to Arizona, from Washington (state). I was planning on using my F250 4x4 to tow a trailor load of stuff to Tucson, then my son would drive it back to WA and sell it, then by himself a van. I figured he could sell it for 3 grand tops (a '92 F250 with a rather beat up bed from off-roading in the mountains and hitting too many trees, heheh).

House is up for sale

May 23, 2006

The house we owned in Mountlake Terrace, WA.

We are finally at a point where we can put the house up for sale. Thursday the sign goes up, and if all goes as the realtor says it should, the house will be sold and deal closed by the end of June. The land purchase is on schedule to close by the end of this month. And, I am getting ready to move to Tucson the first week of June, the Cheryl will follow after the house is sold.

Picked the lot to buy in Tucson

Apr 30, 2006

The desert area of our lot to build our house.

Last weekend I was in Tucson, AZ looking at some lots out in the Diamond Bell Ranch area. DBR in about 22 miles southwest of Tucson, off Aho Hwy. I went down there with a list of 4 lots to look at and pick one. Turns out the lot we are going to buy was not on that list.
