Well today we go to sign the paperwork for my new place. Admittedly, its just a patch of ground, with a ratty mobile home on it, but if all goes well I'll be happy with it.

Its 5 acres. I will have it paid for in full in just 10 years. Not to shabby.

It already has a well and sewage. This week we will get electricity and a phone.

Sadly, I don't think that broadband will be an option out there, at least not immediately. I also refuse to go back to dial-up so until I can either afford satellite or DSL arrives, I will be in an indefinite hiatus from the internet.

All in all though, I will be happy because I will finally be getting my own place again.

So, sometime between now and June 1st (assuming no glitches) I will be departing.

I will try to post some pictures of the property. It will be kinda nice to have a WIP rendition of how the place progresses. Even if I don't have the net, I can get access through the library and through my work.

Wish me luck.

WARNING: LARGE FILE SIZES!

Yes, these pictures shot a very rustic setting. BUT, I hope to be able to show enough improvement over time to make it worth your time viewing them.

Today was a very nice/sunny day and we got all our paper signing done with little or no hitches.

Yes, I am quite the bit on cloud nine today. We won't be actually moving till the second or third week of May. My only regrets circles around my internet woes.

Oh well. You guys got along before I arrived, you'll just have to grit your teeth and bare it till I can figure out a solution.

Hell, I am not even sure whats available out that way. I might be worrying for not.

The funny thing about my new residence is, its fat in the middle of an Indian reservation.

I've gone native. <img src=" SRC="images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif">

I'm sure your lack of internet won't even cross your mind for at least six hours :P Seriously though, you're probably gonna be plenty busy fixing the place up for the first couple weeks. Have fun and good luck and all that.

I'll be up that way sometime this year Doc. Right now I am on so tight a schedule that I will barely be able to squeeze in Monqui if I am lucky and he is on my way.

I got to leave today because of the time constraints, most weeks I wait till Monday.

I am scheduled to leave for Phoenix Monday afternoon.

Yeah, I could say no, but my wallet is rather thin this week. /me wonders where it all went.

C'yall, I'm off to Minnesota. <img src=" SRC="images/smiles/wavey.gif">

Indian country hmmm... I wonder if you can send smoke signals over the net. May be that will work? Nah....probably not, that looks pretty secluded.

I would guess you might have a little problem getting service, depending how far from a town you are, the comm services out there are somewhat backwater from my experience depending on what part of the state.

Good luck with new place, looks like a nice piece of property. I always wanted one like that so I could run around naked and chase the old lady...LOL.

My grandkids might leave me alone for a little while too with that much room to raom around.

Small chance, but one worth wishing for. There is a chance that there is DSL out there. The phone company thinks so anyway.

I sure hope so.
