Actually. SHHHH! I was born in Newfoundland
Though we could go moose hunting in New Zealand
as there are rumoured to be some there. They flew them in in the early 1900s from Canada
. True story. Though the version I told my oldest daughter a few years ago involved them flying there on their own........
For some reason she didn't believe me....
Thanks Gord. I was looking at that site this morning and then after my wife saw it I believe our decision is made. It may be a few years but I think we found where we want to go. I even checked the rates at the marina. Heehee.
Commuting an hour is no big deal as when we lived in Southwestern Ontario
a few years ago I drove 2 1/2 hours each way every day to work in Toronto.......driving!! LOL. Averaged 600 km (400 miles) a day 5 days a week.
One thing I need to check into is whether we can legally convert the house to solar/wind power as it's not allowed in many places. But we are budgeting 40-50 grand for the conversion and hopefully it'll be enough. our intention is to get our expenses down to as little as possible once we make the move.
Though I'll be running our vehicles on biodiesel (at least in summer) I doubt I'll find a diesel
in the size boat I'm looking at getting. (Approx 26 footer me thinks..) So, is there somewhere up there I can take sailing lessons
? (I never assume, supposedly.)
Even if it DOES take a few years for me to heal/us to move/get a boat, I'm just happy I'm able to even dream about it! The fact that it's now looking like a possibility (though maybe some time off) has made me quite excited. It may not be a big boat but it will be mine and that's good enough for me.
