Joan and I did a thing a couple of weeks ago. It looks like we have a permanent home in Moab for a while.
After much painting, rearranging, and Tacoma loads of stuff (including four seasons times the two of us for outdoor gear!) and other “stuff,” we look forward to resuming our outdoor activities this coming weekend.
EDIT – Trevor Noah did a recent funny, and informative, take on this issue :
The past lives Joan and I lived allowed us to get to this point. And if I begrudged my IT skillset (or, rather, my previous corporate life working IT) in the past, I’m now thankful that it gives me a portable skill where I can find employment anywhere. Even in a tourist town!
When I showed up on Joan’s literal doorstep almost five years ago, I did not expect to make Moab my home. Nor did I see that this awesome, incredible, passionate, and wicked smart woman would be my trip partner, friend, and wife. 🙂
