Been a while, eh? Yes, I am still alive, but the biggest news is I am no longer in IL!

A friend & I moved to southern OR 01/04/2018, but 2.5 months into the move, we are still looking for a place to call home (apartment, motor home, trailer, house). So, if you have any connections in the Grants Pass-Central Point-Medford-Ashland areas who may be able to assist us, we would greatly appreciate it. Neither of us want to give up, despite increasing pressures, stress & expenses.


Meantime, since I last visited, I posted pics from the 2017 Cruise Nights I hosted at Beef Villa in S Elgin IL:

&, I have published a few sporadic posts the last few months on the home page; planning a new entry sometime soon with pictures I have taken here in Oregon:

What is new with you!?

Hey Limey! Thank you ... I will try to visit a bit more often, but can't promise at the moment. Once things settle down, I'll have more "free" time. Hope all is well for y'all in IL. Wink



Gorgeous area here in southern Oregon (like MANY other places across the United States) & pics do not do it justice. But, I hope to have a new post soon on www.oldcarsstronghearts.com with many photos I have taken so far.

While I apologize for not including more detail about what all we HAVE looked into so far, I purposefully kept it vague because I did not want to limit brainstorming (tho, we are already thinking outside-the-box). So, yes, we have checked Craiglist, local ads, local newspapers, area businesses, etc., & reached out to Mennonite Your Way (no response yet) & other similar organizations.

At this point, we are hoping networking will help. I have always said (given experiences during my 2002-2011 road trips) we are more connected than we know. My favorite small-world story of that type is when I met a guy I had known for a few years in Oklahoma City OK in 2006 & (long story short) found out he had been taught by my grandfather in a rural OK High School. Every connection helps.

The last 2 days have featured awesome weather in southern OR, & I took advantage both late afternoons by walking ~45-60 minutes on a section of Bear Creek Greenway, starting at a park at I-5 Exit 21. Snapped some photos & took a video which will be included when I write a post (might schedule several entries) on www.oldcarsstronghearts.com for the photos & videos I have taken since January, some of which I have uploaded to my personal Facebook page, globally so they can be seen whether you are on FB or not.


Anyway, since I last visited, made a few connections, but so far, still no place. IF we cannot find a place within the next few weeks, I may consider road tripping for a little while! Anyone want a visit if I start driving?


Yes, I have a job. I continue working remotely as the Part-Time Office Manager for a home appraiser in the Elgin IL area, planning to go to Full-Time later this year; I want to get off Medicaid when I can afford my own healthcare policy. *rolls eyes* Luckily, I have other income options to check out, but meantime, I will withdraw funds from my IRA to pay some bills since expenses keep increasing.

Right now, to save money on renting a car (currently a yellow Dodge charger at a very low rate), I am trying to decide if I should buy a 1991 Mercury Grand Marquis here for $1,000 or spend nearly $2,000 to have my beloved 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis LS shipped to southern OR. Decisions decisions decisions.


Peace.
