Farewell, Mariposa

Twenty four years worth of stuff - minus some furniture that the buyers wanted - went into storage pending a new home.

We had booked our next “carryon” expedition to Europe for May before we went to Ashland, Oregon on a discovery mission in March. It seemed like a perfect match for us and we decided to try to move this year. The Mariposa house sold so fast (escrow closed Wednesday) that we found ourselves, with help from son Brad and some great friends, moving out of our home and getting on a plane almost simultaneously.



Home free! Or homeless!? We did manage to rent a furnished condo in Ashland for when we return.

People we meet here in Scotland ask where we are from. Our answer will take some getting used to.

    So many fun Mariposa memories with you after more than 20 years. Now our next memories together will be all over the map. Lets go! Miss you tons.

      Thanks Kathy. Pine Top Drive will always be our house, but no longer our home. Looking forward to new adventures with you both.

    Mariposa has given you so many memories to “carry” with you! I loved visiting! But, it is really the two of you who made the Mariposa house such a welcoming, lovely home. That magic will happen wherever you call home! Wishing you both the most amazing trek-venture in Scotland! Looking forward to time with the Spittles in Ashland!

    Thank you Jamey. It’s been a whirlwind these past couple months. Looking forward to an Ashland visit from you. We can explore together!
