I know we’ve taken quite a hiatus from updating the site, but it’s all for a good reason…we promise. The last couple of months have been consumed by looking at houses, selling our home in Boston, and tying up various loose ends so that we can pack up and relocate our lives to the place we love the most – the Adirondacks. It’s a huge, scary, exciting decision – one that we have most certainly not taken lightly – and we consider ourselves very lucky to be able to make it happen.
Our long term plan had always been to retire in the Adirondacks, but we recently realized the error in our thinking. Everything we love about the ADKs involves the outdoors – hiking, rock climbing, paddling, ice climbing, skiing – so it made sense to try to live there NOW, rather than in thirty years when we may not be able to enjoy all of those activities. We’re also very lucky to have employers who embrace the concept of telecommuting. And with the Adirondack Initiative for Wired Work underway, all of the pieces seemed to fall into place.
So we made our list (to move or not to move?) and checked it twice (or thrice), and if all goes according to plan we’ll be in our new home in time for the holidays. It’s a stressful and all-consuming endeavor, but one that we are confident will be worth it in the end.
As things settle down, we plan to refocus our energies on Towns and Trails, so keep checking back. I know we’ll have lots of great material to post about from our new basecamp.
