21st June 2018
As many of you will be aware, I haven’t posted anything on this site for some months.
The reasons are many and varied. Hopefully I’ll get an opportunity to explain at a later date.
I started this blog in 2007. Eleven years is a long time, change is constant.
This year so far the changes have mainly been unexpected and unwelcome.
I’ve learnt from sailing that when the wind blows constantly against you it’s necessary to change course.
Those adverse winds have been blowing strongly for months now.
So here’s where we’re at.
Gail and I have decided to move back ashore. We’re not yet ready (or able) to stay in one place, so we’re buying a 5th wheel caravan and pickup.
We’ll still be gypsies.
‘Gleda’ will have to be sold.
I’ve posted details on the Wharram Builders Forum HERE
I’ll be talking to Scott Brown brokerage shortly.
The sails have been trimmed, we’ve changed tack, now we’ll have to see how we get on.
Right now it’s difficult to be excited. I knew I’d have to do it someday but only a few weeks ago the thought hadn’t crossed my mind it’d be so soon.
But that’s life. We can only control what we can control and I’m taking as much control as I can.
For now I’ll say goodbye and thank you. It’s been a privilege sharing this chapter of my life with you.
Perhaps we’ll be able to share some different adventures down the track.
Best wishes to you.
