Moving stuff into my new motorhome, I walked around with a hat on a hat for a while, which made me think of Merlin Mann.

On the Sinclair Trails blog: the slogan of the Tiffin luxury motorhomes is “Roughing It Smoothly”. After looking at the previous posts touring our coach, I think you can see why.

I started this blog on January 1, 2018, with a goal of posting one photo every day. Which I achieved for 1,346 days… until we had no internet during our Yellowstone trip, resulting in some missed days. Oh well, streaks are made to be broken. That might happen more often as we travel with uncertain internet connectivity, though we plan to stay in places with cell coverage, and will get technology to boost our connectivity, since we need internet access for our work.

As part of moving from a 5-acre homestead into a 40-foot motorhome, we’re significantly downsizing, selling most of our stuff. We’re taking the things we want with us, and storing some sentimental items, but the vast majority of our stuff holds little sentimental value, or use in our new home; the accumulation of our lifetimes, and especially of our homestead time, where our stuff has expanded to fit the available space — many items we forgot we had, or is still brand new, unopened! Crazy. Getting rid of this stuff is very freeing.
Anyway, we couldn’t have done this downsizing without the help of professional estate sellers. We’ve lucked out in working with a couple of great guys, Tom and Mike of A Bridges Estate Sales. They’ve put in a huge amount of work over the past several weeks in sorting through our stuff, cleaning and laying them out on tables, pricing them, and will be selling them.
Our estate sale will be over four days, since we have so much to sell: September 9-12. Yes, in a couple of days time. Check out the sale listing page (which is still being updated as they prepare the last items).
As another sneak peek, here are a bunch of pictures of our stuff, from before we headed out on our trip to Yellowstone (so some items are not yet laid out or priced in these pictures). If you see things you would like to buy, do come to the sale! Look at the sale listing for more information.
