We put the wraps on our little house, today. All painted, cleaned, septic system installed, and air conditioning working really well; as the temperature was 100 degrees this afternoon.
We installed the blinds, bathroom accessories, and mirrors this morning; and carried everything else home. Plans are to have a family in it come the first of July. It’s amazing the number of folks looking to rent a home these days. It seems there are a lot of good people who have jobs and money, but the banks just can’t, or won’t, lend them the money to buy a home. Things appear to be upside down in more ways than one.
Anyway, I’ll get off my soapbox and move on. Now that I’ve got the house building behind me, it’s time to be making plans for departure next week. We had planned to head for Southern Colorado and make our way North along the Western slope of the Rockies. With Colorado on fire from one end to the other, I don’t know if that’s going to work, now.
Another thing is that our final destination was to be somewhere in Northwest Montana or upstate Idaho. It seems they are experiencing temperatures right in line with ours. 100 degrees in Billings last week, and high winds are making all that area a tinderbox, also.
When I look at the atlas, it appears that the Oregon coast isn’t much farther than Kalispell, MT. I guess that will call for a decision to be made somewhere around Laramie, or Ogden, or Boise, or?????
Thanks for looking………..jc
