Nah, the weather's fine! Overnight lows in the 20s but highs in the 50s. At any rate, you have a reason to come back this way. We raise our own sheep so there's always fresh lamb.

I really envy you both! My wife has a 100 mile butt (or the nearest Brooks Brothers outlet, whichever occurs first), so I gave up vacationing with her and travel instead with my golden, Barley.

Best of luck, and may this be therapeutic for both of you!

Also subscribing. Any idea when you will be passing through FL? You have a place to stay if need be.

So sorry for your loss. I wish you safe travels and I look forward to seeing more of your incredible photos and following your adventure.

Glad that you were able to enjoy New England during one the most incredible times of the year here. The colors here are hard to beat.

Good luck!!

Good Luck.

I am sorry for your loss.

I'm following. I wish it was following alongside your side car rig on my bike, rather than on my computer. Godspeed.

Best of luck, I'll be following.
The decision was actually very hard and I can admit I've doubted it since we've been gone but overall, I think it was the right choice for us right now. We have years and years to settle down...later.
