Heading South in less then a week

Follow us on Facebook

Feb 4th update- We are not leaving now until the 5th. Last week just hours before we were ready to leave we got a offer on our farm with quick possession dates. In one week we have packed all our earthly belongings into a 20ft Container and our 4 horse stock trailer to store until we get home from Arizona and start our hunt for a new farm up in the interior. 

So keep your eyes on the blog starting tomorrow. The journey begins!

The trailer is mostly packed ready to go. Heading to the federal Vet today to have horse papers signed. Then off to our family Vet to have health papers signed on our exotic cat.

Our new Truck took some time to get ready but Ron has been working hard to get everything done in time. Tuesday is Ron last day of work after 28 years with the "Vancouver Fire department" he will head into Vancouver first thing Tuesday morning and hand in all his firefighting gear say his good byes and head home to leave.  "Retirement" and yes I am only a few months younger then Ron so I will be doing the same in July until then it is a Take a Break and my 6 weeks vacation all rolled in to one big holiday. :)

Here is what the trailer will look like heading down the road. We will be taking a different Smart car though Ron's Smart car will stay home and we will take my little red one.

Getting ready to go South

Less then 20 days to count down until we leave. 

Ron has been busy working to get the truck and trailer ready to go South. He has the backup camera installed, tie downs on the flat deck installed and has tested it with one of our smart cars. Horse's blood has been pulled for their coggins test. Will get Health papers down the week before we leave.
Ramps for the smart car can go on either side to drive on then drive off. 

Only thing different will be the red smart car will be going with us not the blue one. 

It will be nice to have a second bedroom incase we get visitors.

Big question is can we fit in or out of our driveway LOL
