Our Life

Moving to Texas!

So after saying our goodbyes last night (which was not fun!) we hit the road this morning to Texas. We woke up early today and finished packing the last few things into the U-Pack trailer and our two vehicles before heading out. We decided to take the route down through California, Arizona and New Mexico.

RV Trip To Texas

Pit stop in Moab on our way to Texas.

On Thursday, November 4th, we listed our home for sale and then headed south. We had to get our motorhome down to Texas and wanted to do it before the weather got too bad.

Today Lacie and I made the final trip to our Venersborg house to finish cleaning out my office and to sign the papers to sell the home. We bought this home in May 2017 for $350,000. And today we sold it for $444,000. So not a bad gain in just 3 years.
