Another milestone yesterday - signed all the papers from the Title company so that's all in order. Closing is this Mon 7/9 at which time I'll have the deed paid in full!

Last day at the brewery is coming up in a few weeks, and then I'll be doing the final packing in anticipation for the big move mid-Aug. Just shredded about 100# of old records and will be visiting the second hand store with donations of things like heavy winter jackets and such.

Registered new accts with the utility companies in AZ so things are moving apace.


Cheers,

RR

That sounds like the smoothest transition I've ever heard of regarding moving. Other than the house you live in burning down and moving is grabbing your coat and walking away, I guess....

Clean living is dealing a great hand to you sir! How cool is that? king

Not sure how smooth it actually is Ozzie but I'm dealing with it OK.


More later.....

Well, by the time I get permission from the doctor to roll out to the PNW, I'll be waving at you from the northbound lanes!

Fracking medical practitioners. Always our best interests at heart. Whatever happened to the sense of adventure?

No reason to lose touch Ron. You know my e-mail and I'll still be hanging around here - once I get the 'puter set up in Sun City that is.

And the hotter it gets the more I like it!

RR

Much going on here in anticipation of the big move in a month or so. I'll spare y'all the details, yet if I'm to meet my goal of going minimalist it's a necessary evil. And I'm at peace with this decision.

More later.....


Cheers,

RR

I've been tardy on my updates, so here's the belated version-

Closed on the Sun City house this past Monday, and I now have the deed PAID IN FULL! So now I own 2 houses (YIKES), yet am hoping to shed one of them in a month or so. More on that later.

Set up accounts at all the new utility companies in AZ and am getting the locks changed on the new house. Made my final plans for the physical move (no small task) - too much to type and too many details.

Suffice to say that I'll be taking occupancy sometime in mid - Aug. My last day at the brewery is the end of the month (July 31), so officially on Aug 1 I'll be retired.

affraid

And what a totally weird concept that is to me, even though the date approaches soon. It's like it hasn't sunk in yet or something. My life for 30 yrs has been defined by being a brewer and I've enjoyed each and every day whether good or bad. And now it's time to cut it free.

And yes this is a conscious decision I made about a year ago. I'm not being forced out by the new brewery ownership - in fact they would very much prefer that I stay on. I've considered this again and again, but this decision is the right one for me.

The new ownership brings much to the table. They are 101% dedicated to seeing Snoqualmie Falls Brewing grow and prosper. And the new beer garden (which is set to open this weekend) is a testament to that, as well as the improvements to the kitchen, menu, Tap Room cosmetics, and much else. In short they are in for the big picture. Good peeps.

So I feel that I will leave on an up note, confident that the company, the products (which are virtually all mine), will go forth and prosper. I leave with no regrets. So enough about all that....

I'm chipping away at the packing, discarding, recycling, etc, in preparation for the physical move. This week I've been focused on pipes/'baccy/accessories. Now at a point where I have that pretty much under control. Just leaving out enough to get me through the next month or so.

Much to go through yet, but a few hrs after work is getting 'er done. And I'll have a full week or so after I officially retire to perform the final-final packing, leaving only the loading to do. Should be in good shape.

More later............


Cheers,

RR

Goodness me Rande, you have been a busy boy. I know because I'm currently packing the last of my house in preparation of moving this Thursday.

Good luck with it all mate.

Sounds like you're building a portfolio of properties, Rande!

Sounds like you've got everything all in hand, Rande, and importantly, have got your head round your relationship with the brewery. You're in a not too dissimilar place to where I was a few years ago; left the RAF after 27 years' service, bought a house and started a new chapter. It can be very unsettling if you've invested so much into your profession. It becomes part of the very fabric of who you are.

Time to look forward though old chum. Celebrate the past, but look forward. Cast off your puffer jackets, winter mitts and bobble hats with a smile and embrace your new way of life!

Bravo for Rande!
