    Thank you very much. I am the good person my parents raised me to be. The rest is life experience. :D Dave

    Travel with an unpleasant cat

    Sounds like a plan! I admit, I did rather enjoy my second drive by myself. I could listen to the music I wanted to hear, and nobody sang along as well as I did. LOL! :D Dave

    Sue, you're a hoot! I'm not sure Don would appreciate being your pet. Then again, maybe he would? LOL! :) Dave

    Travel with an unpleasant cat

    We got a sedative from the Vet, but the cat threw it up immediately. So we made the drive without any meds for the cat. He did fine. The kennel we used was large enough for him to have his favorite blanket, a small litter box, and food/water dishes attached to the cage wire. We did not take...

    The moving adventures of DaveNV (super long, with pictures)

    Thanks, Gina. This move may sound sudden, but we've been exploring this option for about three years now. The timing was the only thing that seemed rushed, but that was because of the unexpected availability of a rental home in Mesquite, in the exact neighborhood we wanted to live in, that...

    The moving adventures of DaveNV (super long, with pictures)

    They were getting ready to sell and move out of state, so they had the POD in their driveway for several months. They moved back into the house, and maybe within six months, they had moved away and sold their house. It seems like a lot of moving things around, but she said it was nice being...

    That's amazing luck! I'm not much of a gambler, but I do enjoy playing from time to time. Will be interesting having options. :) Dave

    The moving adventures of DaveNV (super long, with pictures)

    A (former) neighbor did just that. She got one of the POD-type storage containers delivered to her driveway, and moved everything into it she wanted to keep. Then she emptied the rest of her house via donations and trips to the dump. She cleaned carpets, repainted, and did whatever...

    The moving adventures of DaveNV (super long, with pictures)

    Thanks! My nephew is a machine. I could not do the job he does. He loves it, though, and embraces every opportunity to drive a big rig. :) My cat Kai was a trooper. He didn't seem to mind being in a large kennel cage during the trip, and he's settled into the rental in Mesquite like he's...

    Hi all. Im newbie.

    Welcome, Brian! You're in the right place to learn all about how to make the most of your timeshare experience. Definitely spend the $15 and join Tug. It's worth every cent. Dave

    To my friends I want to let you know my life has taken a new direction

    That is very sad news, and I'm sorry to hear it. But you are strong and capable, so you'll find the right path, going forward. As others have said, we're here for you. Wishing you all the best. Dave

    Thank you! It's starting to feel real. It all happened so fast, and seemed to take so long - now that we're settling in, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm pretty sure it's not an oncoming train. :) Dave

    The moving adventures of DaveNV (super long, with pictures)

    Thanks! That's high praise. I like to paint "word pictures," to give the reader a sense of what it's like to be immersed in the situation. If the reader couldn't be there, maybe my words can help them to get a feel of what it was like. In my copious (yeah, right!) spare time, I'd like to...

    The moving adventures of DaveNV (super long, with pictures)

    Thank you. I suspect you're right. I do have to say, I feel lighter, being able to be "out" here. A small thing, certainly, but extremely important to me as a person. :D Dave

    The moving adventures of DaveNV (super long, with pictures)

    Good point! But I also think a whole lot of what was "important" wouldn't be. :D Dave

    I think it's normal to make assumptions, based on your own life experience. If nobody corrects them, then they become your expected normal. It's only when things change, that we question what we had assumed. No harm, no foul. It's just more honest now. :) Dave

    I'm looking forward to exploring having gambling options available. I've never cared for the local casinos in other states, since it seemed they weren't as "fair" as Nevada casinos seem to be. (Not that any are truly fair...) Part of the life change, moving here. I think the CasaBlanca is...

    The moving adventures of DaveNV (super long, with pictures)

    Thanks, Glynda! I grew up in a world where moving was common - my dad was military, and my mother was always wanting us to move to a better property, so moving was very common. I went to 13 schools in 12 years. The running joke at our house was that if the new phone book came out, and our name...

    Sorry, no. Not polyamorous. I'm just your average married guy. Well, maybe not so average. LOL! :D The moving experience has been, well, "moving." After 17 years in our old house, there were things we just accumulated, without even thinking about it. Things got moved that seemed...

    Thanks! I'm glad to finally be able to not have to protect Jeff's working situation. It's easier being open about things. Life in Mesquite will be interesting! :D Dave

    The moving adventures of DaveNV (super long, with pictures)

    Thanks! If our moving experience is kind of typical, then I understand why people say it's such a hassle. It wasn't terrible, just took a lot longer than planned, cost more, and took more out of us than we'd expected. I'm a great planner, and once I have a plan, I'm great at execution. But...

    The moving adventures of DaveNV (super long, with pictures)

    Thanks, Mary Ann! I had looked into hiring movers, but we only had a dozen or so pieces of furniture to move, and the rest was small stuff - mainly boxes. The cost was prohibitive. The way we did it was probably more work, but it was the best way to get things done. And as you say, now we're...

    That's funny. Subliminal music is the best. And wasn't it nice being able to find TP like before? We haven't been to the local Costco here yet (have that planned for today - we need to stock up on groceries), so it'll be interesting to see how things are. We've been to the St. George Costco...

    The moving adventures of DaveNV (super long, with pictures)

    Thanks, Pedro. People here are very active in the early and late hours, and stay indoors during the hottest parts of the day. I'm one who wakes up early most days anyway, so I think it'll be easy to adapt. Later in the year, when daily temps are lower, I think things tend to spread out more...

    Thanks! I also hope the house sells fast. It's a really nice place, with a quarter acre corner lot on a nice, secluded urban street. Well worth owning. We'll see how it goes. :D Dave
