Congrats! You are homeless!

It’s not every day you get an email with that subject line… and feel great happiness. That was the case this morning. As we slept, the final closing documents were signed on the sale of our house. The final item on our “To Do Before We Leave” list has been belatedly checked off.

I guess our home is now wherever we are. At the moment, that’s a berth on the ScubaPro II, a 22-meter yacht floating in the Great Barrier Reef. Not a bad upgrade from South 7th Street.

Thanks to everyone- including my parents, POA Don, lawyer Nancy, our neighbors and Realtors- who helped make the sale happen half a world away!

    Congrats on the sale of the house! Just wanted to let you know that there was an article in the paper on Monday that a retired mechanic gave his Snap On tools that he had from the 1950′s on to them for their museum.

    Fantastic! Great news! I was just thinking about the sale of your house yesterday! I must be psychic! BTW – you are starting to get a following from UW-Whitewater as a few of my co-workers are following your blog. Glad all is well! -”Maria”

    Congrats! Finally! I wish it was before you left so that you got to experience it but it looks like POA Don captured it great!

    Thanks for the congrats everyone! We have been busy beach bums in Australia with very spotty internet service. In a few days we’ll be in a big city and will tell you all about staying in a camper van, diving the Great Barrier Reef and holding a koala.

    Cheers Mates!
