Moving To Midian

Well, it’s about halfway done. With the help of our brother-in-law Gary and Tina’s sister Keri, we loaded up 95% of our belongings into a 45-foot trailer & shipped them off to the ranch. This was kind of a tricky operation, as we boxed, palletized, and finally shrink-wrapped most of our belongings before lifting them onto the trailer using a rented Bobcat (see the pictures above). We’ve got a few more weeks of work to do on the house before we can put it on the market (actually, we could work on the house forever, but we’re capping it at a few more weeks), then Tina, Snap, Michelle (the dog), Adrienne (the cat), and myself move to the Black Rock Desert for good. With the help of the Lord and our real estate agent Jasmine, it should sell relatively quickly, allowing us to move on to the next stage of our lives.

I haven’t posted anything about the last two trips to the ranch, as they were dedicated entirely to turning around book shipments for Hero Games & thus had little to do with working on the place. As of last week everything was functioning smoothly out at Midian: the power situation was good, water was plentiful, and nothing had blown over (God willing nothing will, either!). One of my trees may have been killed by a late April freeze, but the others are in full bloom and seem healthy. I hope to plant somewhere between 10 and 20 more this year, weather and finances permitting.

Well, that’s all for the moment! The next post will be from Tina and Snap, as they’re going to move out there a week before I do.
