Project Update... Moving

Thank you to those of you who have emailed me iquiring if I was still alive or why I haven't updated the site recently. Regretably it has been a month since my last post. Don't worry, I haven't lost interest in the RV, it is simply because I have been VERY busy (emphasis intended). A few weeks ago, my wife and I bought a brand new house. Since then, what little spare time I have had has been dedicated to getting our current house ready for sale. Drilling, deburring and riveting has been replaced by cleaning, painting and landscaping. During the weekends, we have been kicked out of our own house for open houses and realtor showings, so no construction for me. Frankly, all of this has been mentally draining too, and my mind really hasn't been into building during this time. On the bright side, the new house is awesome. It is almost twice as big as our current house, and since it is brand new the fix-it (honey-do) list should be real short.

Unfortunately, one of the comments our realtor has been hearing while trying to sell our current house is that the garage is too small. It is a two-car gargage, but with all the airplane related stuff crammed in their, it looks a lot smaller than it really is. Since we already bought the new house, we would really like to sell this house quickly, so in an effort to expedite the sale, I rented a truck, and with the help of a friend, packed up the kit and put it in storage. This stinks, as I won't be able to touch the kit for another month, but if it helps sell our house, it will be a small price to pay. Sometime you just gotta do what you gotta do.

So don't expect too much from me in the way of updates, for the next few weeks. I will be busy packing and getting ready for the new house (I can't wait). But don't worry, once we are moved in, I will be back in business big time! ;-)

Empty jigs... a truly sad sight. When all of the stuff was removed from the garage, it seemed to make a big difference, so in the end I think it will be worth it.
