We got to see tow houses in Ely yesterday. That's a really neat town and I would like to live there. BUT it was over 30 minutes drive to the base, and that's our limit. The first house was a huge 5 bedroom, with a whirlpool tub, built in bookshelves, etc. But in addition to the drive time, it was a little crummy. Mold in the bath, carpet torn, kitchen cabinets unmatched.
I drove yesterday! Just from the Taco bell/shoppette to the apartment, but it was a big first step.
Bob went wrong side of the street once yesterday. The oncoming car just stopped and waited for him to move back over. I hollered. "no! No! Wrong side!!!" and the he moved. He should have got it on the first "no!"
He's back with more houses to consider.
