somehow in south carolina
- Jan 17, 2008
After 6 months of seemingly nonstop work my house is sold. First buyers dropped out last minute from cold feet, second were 90% dropping out but fixed some financing issues. A lot of bizarro situations kept setting it back, all out of my hands. Made a decent profit from all the work we did. The market going bananas helped. Able to pay off all of our debt and start fresh. We're leaving Monday. Moving 2800 miles away to South Carolina with nothing but a POD for our memorabilia and my records/guitar stuff, important personal stuff, etc. Nothing else but us and car of cats on the drive. My last big move was from LA to OR. I have hated it here almost the entire time (5 years). Nothing against the place, but man I hate clouds. The state is rated 50th in depression and yeah we both feel it. We moved here due to a type of emergency situation and didn't have much of a choice. This time it's our choice and on our terms and I couldn't be more excited. Of course we leave May 2nd(ish) which is when playoffs start, so I'll have my jersey ready and laptop for the hotel rooms to watch. We're driving over I think 6 days. Don't think I've been as excited since I got out of the military and travelled from ID to CA. I'm not a social media type, and I've been a member here forever, and feel I have to share about it somewhere. I can't wait for the Kings to come play the Hurricanes and I can go be the weird guy wearing a Kings jersey and actually watch a game in person again. Wish us luck!
