My official blast off for the Big Island of Hawai’i is about 10 days off. I’ve left some of my stuff here until I can determine exactly what I’m going to need over there, but one load is on the way. It will end up costing me more money to do it in two moves, but I don’t want to take stuff I won’t want or need, and don’t want to end up having to put stuff in storage. My two vehicles are on the way, and one will be waiting for me when I get there – hopefully – so I don’t have to rent a car.
I have three places to look at as an initial rental once I get there, so I should have a good base of operations within a few days.
I’ll be coming back to Wyoming for a couple weeks in the spring to finish up some stuff around my house to get it ready for sale, and also to send whatever other stuff I decide I need or want with me over there. The rest will be sold and/or given to the Salvation Army.
It’s interesting as I sort of flow back and forth from excitement about the move to a feeling of “oh crap I’m really doing this!” I’ve certainly never felt like changing my mind though.
I realized I’ll be spending the holidays, and my birthday on the island. I think Christmas day may be spent at the beach – or at least part of it. Same for my birthday.
