Winnemucca property is SOLD!!

Once again can't believe how time flies!  Since the last posting we have sold and closed on the Winnemucca property!  It happened so quickly and easy once it went into escrow...We left Bridgeport after camping and I took the kids home and Ken went to Winnemucca to clear off the stuff we had left. We signed papers and the 18th and the 19th the money was in the bank.   

The property worked well for us doing the 4 years we owned it, but now it's a good feeling to have that behind us and on to new adventures!

Adam in the kitchen with the spine of the fish!

Who I will miss the most at the Winnemucca property....Miss Ruby!!

Ken said it was so sad to leave her....it was as if she knew it was his last time out there!

Next project to get the old swamp cooler off the roof....

Really?!!  Does this look like a good idea??!!


Waking up this am (the 24th) in Sacramento at the Super 8...Dave Alaskin had his annual party last night and so we decided to come into town...got to see some of Ken's work buddies and a good time was had by all...today we plan on going to see Ken's mom and Diane before we head home....

Lots of happenings!

Well, it's definitely been awhile..don't quite know what happens that some days I can write every day and others...like this time goes by and before u know it it's weeks..well anyway..quick update and hopefully i'll get back into the groove.

Got back from an awesome trip to Dillon Beach in the middle of July.   The following weekend, Ken, Adam and me joined up with Russell's work family for a great weekend at a rented house near the top of Kingsbury grade South Lake Tahoe.  

Had our bi yearly checkups in Winnemucca and things were good.  Got my first smiley face from her, for my cholesterol.  While we were there we met with our realtor and a gentleman, Doug who looks like is buying the property.  Yes, we are taking a loss but we knew we would.  It's not easy to get a sale for 32,000 cash but it looks like that's what happening! Yay!  

I went and picked up the kids for the last summer hurrah...Jacob and Aaron went back to school last week so we  won't see them.  Took a quick camping trip to Bridgeport, CA and had a wonderful time.  

Left the campground and had messages from title so Monday am we'll be in Sparks to sign papers and the buyer comes in Monday afternoon.  So once again our plans changed.  Ken is heading to Winnemucca today (August 16th) and I am going to CA to drop off the gkids.  We were going to leave tomorrow and I would go along, but with needing to be in Sparks Monday am that's just the way it has to be.
