The time has come for Taylor and me to pack away our farm clothes………..
And dig out our ski gear…….
And point the steering wheel west, because we are taking three months off! That’s right everyone, these farmers are taking the winter off. We are getting married in January and plan to spend the next 3 months in Oregon. We plan to ski, cook, and rest. 9 months of farming takes a toll on you physically, emotionally, and mentally. 3 months off is going to be wonderful. So our bags our packed and we are ready to tackle the 3000 mile road trip to Oregon. And we could not be happier. We even have sweet place to live while on the road.
Okay, so we aren’t really going to be living in the truck. But for our cross-country road trip it makes a cozy home. A nice bed, storage space, and room for Henry. Plus a camp stove for cooking. What more do you need? After a summer of being physically uncomfortable all the time, the idea of sleeping on a wooden bed the size of a twin (but there will be two of us on it) sounds like vacation. At least we won’t be hunched over (our permanent position at the farm!) Woo-hoo!
What does this mean for the blog? Well, I will be blogging daily from Oregon. And hopefully I will be able to blog everyday from the road. We have some places along the way where we will be able to use the internet. Once in Oregon I will still cook on a nightly basis and post my recipes. Hopefully, there are some good winter farmers markets out there. And I am hoping to maybe volunteer at a small farm near my parents house. The next three months are going to be an adventure, but come April we will be back out here to begin the farm season and resume our positions as caretakers for the Emerson house. Hopefully you will all join me for the ride!
