    Still the Same Ole Roo..

    Dear all,

    I just wanted to let you all know, well, tomorrow I embark on a great journey. I start a new job in Florida on August 9th, so I'm heading out on a grande road-trip tomorrow. Being a Taoist, I'm very sensitive to symbolism--and felt at this point, I should change from Roo719 to a new persona, a new way of looking at things and a new name.

    So, I'm still Roo719 inside...but on the boards? I'm now RooBear. Besides, 719 was my now-old area code.

    Woof!

    Just wanted to let you all know, should you be like, "who's that guy?"

    Peace!

    Re: Still the Same Ole Roo..

    i dont think we've met.. err.. whatever you call being introduced/acquainted with someone via a forum, but i believe i've stumbled upon a TR from you in the past regarding a train and a dog.

    a move of any type is life-altering and hard work.. and with that i wish you the best of luck in this new chapter of yours!

    Re: Still the Same Ole Roo..

    Thanks all! A good friend of mine has volunteered (commandeered?) to help me with the driving and keeping the two animals alive whilst we high-tail it across the US of A. Most of today has been focused on the Yellow Brick Road-we've gotten across Kansas.

    Now we're crashing in a hotel room outside of St. Louis. Animals and copilot are snoring...I'm still typing, agog of the whole situation.

    Peace,

    I saw your posts and wondered if you'd changed your name. I like it! Hope your move is going smoothly and I'm sure you'll love Florida!

    Re: Still the Same Ole Roo..

    After many, many hours of driving, we've arrived in Mount Dora. The apartment's office opens in the morning, we unpack my truck.

    I still want my partner/husband here, so it's a bit bittersweet. Pray for the selling of our house!!

    Congrats Roo, you're home now! You made pretty good time on the road, and now your one big step closer to what you want! Good luck with setting up in the new place and for a quick sale in CO.
