    We STILL have not left for Noo Yawk Stayht yet.:confused: Waaaaaaay too much stuff collected over forty years of owning a beautiful home. Throw in custom furniture made for the house when it was built in 1947 originally, and everything simply takes Waaaaaaay too long.:rolleyes:

    Last time we moved, it was 8 years of "stuff". Was still a nightmare.

    Try two plus decades, if not more.

    Yeah, we still have yet to leave. Nearly done, but I've been here since Saturday morning. If we are not on the road today, they're taking me home, then when they're ready, I'll be out to do the driving.

    We finally left yesterday evening, and went about 90 miles to San Marcos, on I-35. We stayed at a Voucher Villa, and at 5:40 am, some beeyotch meth chick kicked and screamed at another door wanting in a room, and busted the window. That's when the guy flew out the door and read her the riot act. Could not get back to sleep. Bleh.
    As a switch, we got to Texarkana, TX, and had a Thanksgiving potluck dinner at the nice motel we're staying. Y'all have a good night.

    We finally arrived. 2086.0 miles, from the Buc-ee's in New Braunfels, TX, to Cambridge, NY.
    The property goes from the road up into the hills behind the house and barn. Many dead trees that will require removal, but James' mom wants to plant American Chestnut trees that have been bred to be more resistant to the Chestnut Blight that pretty much wiped out the American Chestnut tree as a species. So hopefully, that will work in her favor.
