Desire Moves – Part 2

Last night marked the end of one long journey and the beginning of a new one. Yesterday we rolled into Bethel, Maine after leaving San Diego seven days and 3,442 miles ago. Luckily I was able to line up a couple of locals (Tim and Walt) to help me unload the truck of all our personal belongings. They were great and in a little more than 2 hours we had the whole truck empty.

Now the next phase of fun begins. The first thing I noticed in the house was our brand new 200 amp electrical service was installed replacing the old rusted out 100 amp service. We have lots of available spaces now to add circuits for when we begin to add new lights and outlets in the house, shed and barn.

We have one minor; no make that two minor items preventing us from moving in the house right now. That would be heat and water. I spoke to the heating guy today and he said he may be able to start later this week. In the meantime Lauren and I need to find a place to stay. Right now we’re staying at the Bethel Village Inn aka Ruthie’s which is a very nice, convenient and affordable motel on Main Street in the center of town. The picture above is from our motel room looking toward Gould Academy taken this morning. (Note our now empty Penske Truck). We know that the heat and other stuff we need to do at the house may take a while and that Mr. Murphy (of Murphy’s Law) always shows up at a construction project making it longer than expected. Because of this we are looking at renting an apartment with a kitchen while we get some of this work done. We have a lead on a place and have an appointment to see it tomorrow morning. It’s all good. It’s all Desire.
