We Moved Next Door

30 August 2008 | Scappoose Oregon
We found out that after living in the other place for almost a year, that its put together with bailing wire, duct take and twine.. and prayers... so we found a place to buy in the next moorage up river (Paradise Moorage) and made an offer which was accepted and we moved using my Starcraft Islander 21 M/V. We basically did all the moving ourselves in the evening after work and only had help on one weekend to move the big stuff using a barge. This place felt like home the first night we slept here and has an even better view and is built solid. We almost froze the first winter in the rental. More info later on...
