About us: Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton spent over a decade living self-sufficiently in the mountains of Virginia before moving north to start over from scratch in the foothills of Ohio. They've experimented with permaculture, no-till gardening, trailersteading, home-based microbusinesses and much more, writing about their adventures in both blogs and books.

I completely agree, unless the different terrain, etc, of the new place demands a change in tool usage. Also, being in escrow now myself, I feel the need to have all my cutting devices sharpened now so they're ready to go at the new place I think I may feel this way because I won't know my way around our new town (Corvallis) righ away. Do you feel an internal pressure to get maintenance done before you go, as it do? Or do you feel more like exploring the stores and repair shops when you get to Athens?
