How to Downsize from a House to a Camper,Family and Friends Give a Way…Part Two.

This past week was a busy one.  Our home is quickly being emptied.  Items we wanted to sell were posted on local Craigslist and Facebook groups.  Most items sold but we still have a fish stand that needs to go.  I also had the idea to peddle my goods at a few local antique shops/resell shops.  This worked well, as we had pictures on the phone that helped seal the deal.  We also were able to sell the Ford pickup, “Big Jane”, to a friend of the young fellow that picked up the furniture that we sold.  It was networking at it’s finest.

We contacted friends and family who we knew may want various items.  We wanted to give a good home to items we have collected over the past two years.  Oh, and did we collect stuff. We also discussed leaving items that may be useful to the new owners of this home.  A young couple with a baby.  They were grateful for what ever we donated, furniture, tools, etc.

It’s looking like we are getting closer to our goal.  Rather scary but exhilarating at the same time.  Next step, closing on the house, locating a Motor Home and can’t forget selling the Sterling.  We have also secured a place to lay our heads and park the camper as we work on it.  It’s great to have such giving friends.  You all are so much appreciated, words can not describe.

I am a graduate of Mercer University, Bachelor of Arts, 2001, with a concentration in Sociology. I love travel, camping and the simple things in life. I'm intrigued by the human condition and all it's complexities. Some call me direct, I describe myself as a realist. My greatest gift is to have my best friend, and the love of my life by my side and along for the ride.
