The City Slickers are sayin' Adios
In the southwestern USA, a lot of folks say "Adios", Spanish for "farewell", when they are leaving, and Margie and I have decided to say Adios to Cambridge and SW Nebraska.
My very first blog on the Gazette was titled "What Was Brian Thinking?". Here we are again, making a major change in our lives, probably making some in our extended family ask the same question. Margie and I bought a place in the Nevada desert and will be moving in the near future.
We love our neighbors here at our Nebraska farm(stead). We've loved the peace and quiet of country living, and the folks we've met in these parts are second to none in our opinion. We've also known for a while that something was missing for us.
I've got family in Nevada, there are thousands of miles of Jeep trails to explore which Nebraska has none (It's a "Jeep Thing" that most folks don't understand), and virtually unlimited remote campsites. Margie and I quickly discovered our favorite type of remote camping is virtually nonexistent in Nebraska, though the state park campgrounds and wildlife areas are great places to camp. And lastly, there are mountains within sight of our new place, which I admit to missing much more than I ever imagined. All in all, I guess the Cornhusker state is just a little too flat and civilized for us.
Lastly, but most importantly, I've written blogs about many of our experiences moving to Nebraska, and how Margie and I felt like we were directed here for some purpose. I have no idea if we fulfilled that purpose for sure, but I assume so as we now feel directed to our new location.
I'd like to thank the Gazette for letting me spout my rather pointless drivel over the last 5 years or so, and I appreciate all the comments I received from those of you that chose to express your opinion to my blog posts. I had a great time sharing some about my faith in Jesus Christ and our experiences as a new Nebraska residents, but now the time has come to say...
