On the Road

Well, the house is finally and fully sold! All items to be shipped to Uruguay have been consigned to the freight forwarder. We are finally on the road. Made it as far as the southern part of Oregon, where we are holed up for a few days to recover from the sickness that befell us. If it ain't one thing, its another.

We are in Grant's Pass, Oregon. And if I was feeling better, this would be a great place to stay. As it is, the bed and bathroom are all I've seen. Beginning to feel better, though. Will move on, when we can move on.

Of course, while I was laid up in bed, Denise took a terrific 4 hour boat trip up and down the Rogue River on a jet boat with thrills and spills (mostly water over the edge of the boat, drenching the passengers). They had a lively narrated tour of riverside flora and fauna, historical points and then a spread at a dining lodge, only used by the boat company (Hellsgate Jet Boats). She loved it and it managed not to rain.

Hi!! I love your blog, probably because I am selling some/most of our stuff and we are planning to head for Uruguay in March or April. Could you tell me the name of the shipping company you used and if you were satisfied? Any info highly appreciated. We are not too well heeled so one option is to leave stuff here in storage for a year while we get residency then get my daughter to ship it to us, is that less costly? Of course we are getting rid of most of it.

Thanks! Edy
