Paul in the living room.

We're arrived, and it's already been in adventure! Let's just say that we had some romantic notions about living in a log cabin that aren't, well, very accurate. For one, the wood stove is hard work. The first two days we tried to use it - notice I say "tried" - we ended up with a house full of smoke. We're getting better though. This morning the house was still fairly warm.
Here's another good one - especially if you know Paul - so far, we can't get TV service of any kind. The Dish Network guy said there are too many trees around our place. We have one more chance with Direct TV next weekend - keep your fingers crossed! Something else we don't automatically get: garbage pick-up. Still trying to figure that one out.
With all of the hassles of rural living, there are huge upsides. The cabin is starting to feel really cozy and the property is absolutely beautiful. We can go for a good half-hour hike from our front door. And the biking - oh my goodness - that is going to be amazing.
We're still living among boxes. Today is the first time the computer has been up and running since November. That means more frequent updates from now on. Until then, stay warm.
