Whew. That was intense, exhausting, exciting, and waaaay more work on this end than anticipated. But the response? Truly Awesome! Completely and utterly humbling and fabulous and exciting, to watch it unfold over the 2 weeks the sale was open. We sold 34 pieces of art I think, and made more money than Michael thought possible :).

.... aaaaand we found one! It's not in our possession yet, but we trade cash for the vehicle and title next monday!
I'll give a very quick photo tour of the shots we got on the lot, as I'm supposed to be packing up the last few pieces of the art sale so we can take them into NYC and hand deliver them, leaving at midnight tonight in order to beat the big storm.
30 feet long, 15 years old, and in mint condition.
There's a stereo cabinet in the corner and some shelves inside the door, and storage under the beds which adds a fair bit of space. Think of it this way ... we have to limit what we take, including the weight of a full 55 gallon freshwater tank and 40lbs of propane, and all the things we bring/store/pack in there, to 2000 pounds. The water alone takes 458 of those pounds. We'll have time to figure out what will fit, and what gets shoved into the last corners of the storage space (or sent to salvation army), next week.
It's getting a lot closer! The scary factor amps up, the nerves are a bit wobbly, and the highs higher and the lows lower. It's intimidating, exhilarating, and emotionally exhausting. Looking forward to getting the major planning stuff finished, and to getting on the road and starting to work some of the kinks out, and I'm sure there will be many.
Happy Thanksgiving to all, we have a tremendous amount to be thankful for over here! Hope you all do also.
xo, and onward ...
