Drive the bus 100 feet. Stop and walk back to the truck. Drive the truck 100 feet. Stop and walk back to the bus. Repeat.

It may take a while, but you will have both the bus and the truck at your new location. You will also need new shoes since you will have walked there as well... while walking away.

Re: Best Home Yet

Not sure where you are at in Missouri or where you are headed, but I am heading thru IL in the next couple weeks. If there is anything you think I could do to help just let me know.

That is very funny, however, it is something that is irrefutable in it's logic. It would only take a month to get there. That's even faster than a wagon trail.

Wow, thanks for the offer. All I need is a pound of hundred dollar bills.

Most people do not know how much money that is. I called the Library of Congress and they did not know. I did find out through some nefarious source that is is around $50,000. Old money weighs more than crisp new money.

If only I had a pound of hundred dollar bills to spare.

Re: Best Home Yet

UPDATE:

I am still in Missouri. Lack of funds has postponed my move. Perhaps in the Spring I will be able to do it.

I did manage to get my propane tanks filled. I have heat. I love those catalytic heaters.

Re: Best Home Yet

I am glad you have heat too. I couldn't afford furnace oil this year so we're using our wood heater, and it keeps Rick busy bringing in wood as it's not air-tight--couldn't afford good firewood either so we're using whatever we can scavenge from the 20 undeveloped acres behind us.

Very rainy and dark here today, forecast is for rain & snow mixed tonight.

I'm sure it's colder where you are.

Take Care and pat the dogs for me
