Heads-up….just so you know…we’re moving…

moving-houseNo, not the website…just my wife and I.  We’re downsizing.

My wife and I are currently moving everything we own to a smaller place in town, after 4 years out on the open range. It’s strictly a cost saving measure, but the benefits we are getting in return are quite measurable.  While we’ll be “in town”, the edge of town we’re at, literally, is the EDGE. Due east of our new place, the next paved road is approximately 70 miles away, over the high Wyoming desert. The main river in the area is about 200 yards away, and we’re safely above flood stage. 

So, what does this mean to you, the SurvivalRing site visitor and user? Not much, as the site is located on servers across the nation, hooked up to huge pipes attached to the inter-webs. During the move, my main desktop system and network will be down, affecting  CD/DVD production mode and some of my other creative outlets, until early next week. If you purchase a 13 Disk set of my library in the next week or so, know that I will get your order, and will ship once “The System” is all reconnected, booted, and humming.

Why the move? Less time commuting, more time with my spouse, savings of $600 or more a month in gas and rent, and no more having to ride my 970 pound road bike up a half mile of snail snot if the weather turns the dirt road to mush from passing rain storms.  

I’m going to miss the old place…it was the perfect BOL. 1000 feet up a hill from a 13,000 acre lake, million dollar views of TWO mountain ranges, deer, pheasant, geese, duck, chipmunks, squirrels, and other small furry mammals, and a wildlife habitat across the back fence. In this economy, it still takes money to live in the boonies…and although I’ve got five years with the  state, it’s not enough to justify the expense of staying out there. Of course, when I go hunting, that habitat is still as good as it gets year round. And I know it a lot more than most, since I explored it for 4 years…

Looking forward to downsizing in every way, and going to start leaning towards “minimalization” in many life areas during and after this move. It’s just time.
