The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Moving day!

Moving trailer

A huge thank you to Rose Nell and Jayne, who brought us this moving trailer two months ago and took a huge amount of pressure off our transition! We've been filling it in dribs and drabs ever since, and now everything that made the cut is packed away and ready to move north.

Today's the big day! We won't have electricity (or water or septic or pretty much anything except two whiney cats cooped up in a trailer) at first, so please don't worry if your comments sit in moderation until I head to town and let them out days later. I suspect that within a week or so, we'll be back to normal. In the meantime, we'll be thinking of you all as we embark upon our new adventure!

Good luck in your move! I hope the cats manage well, traffic is light, and the roads are smooth and dry. It'll be great to hear about it whenever you're able. So exciting!

If you dispair with out power, there is a great sale on an inverter generator at Sam's club, but only for two days.
