Today is Feb. 24, 2018. The house in Florida has been a real pain. It a pretty big house and I just now finished the floors. Today I am doing laundry something that we have put off for a while. Home feels farther and father away as each day progresses. Time ticks by and Alaska seems father and farther away. I am homesick.
It doesn’t matter that I have kayaked the Suwannee River this past week and it was absolutely beautiful. I enjoyed it with my best friend Tammy. We even encountered a large water moccasin that scared us to death as it shot off the bank of Bath Tub springs while we were walking around. Another reason I miss Alaska. There are no snakes.
I don’t miss the hot muggy weather of Florida or even the South at that matter. I want to go home to the snow and cold. Stoke the stove and have amazing views with amazing friends that I love to learn new things from. I have realized that my heart is in Alaska and not on the Suwannee River. It’s a fun place to visit but I am done living here.
I miss the clean crisp air, my views, my friends, my lifestyle. I have been gone too long in my opinion. I can’t wait to leave and get back on the road. I will miss my friends in Florida, but I think we probably have had enough of each other. LOL!
So now, Dad and I need to work double time to get out of here. There’s not much more that needs to be done to the house, Just install trim, pressure wash house, paint decks, touch up paint throughout house and paint trim, clean up yard, fell some more trees, create some curb appeal and DONE! Then, we have to paint one of my rental houses as well.
Then, we can high tail it out of Florida! Must go North!
As, we get closer and closer to bug out time. I will start blogging everyday again. You will be here for every bit of the road to home.
