As in, Saltbox. Love me some Saltbox. Especially with 10 acres attached, and near a main road.

Deadline: September 2010

If I get out of DC before September 2010, I will be just shy of 20 years here. I can't imagine living in the DC area for 20 years, so I hope I can make it happen.

Ohbladee Ohbladah

...la la la la life goes on. Sometimes life has a way of getting in the way of life. Inshallah, my plans to move north will begin to move along apace once more. There's just the small matter of massive home improvements & trash hauling. No biggie, right?

What I Did on My Christmas Vacation

Charleston, SC. I was only there for 2 days, so we took the dawgs to the beach (or, as I say, beeeeyotch) both days.

Close but No Cigar

The Asheville area is absolutely gorgeous. The mountains here are incredibly majestic and, as the name suggests, "smokey" (as in clouds & fog). The drive over on I-26 was dizzying in a very cool way. The folks here are pretty friendly, and it's a very artsy and liberal area.

However, it's not Vermont. There's a little too much churchiness (there's a highway named after Billy Graham), and it's actually a little too artsy for me. I prefer the independent, get-off-my-lawn wariness of Vermont. It's where I'm from, and where I belong. The libertarian spirit is much more alive & thriving in the northern climes. Plus, the skiing is better up there.
