We spent the day gallivanting about the countryside in an attempt to familiarize ourselves with the communities surrounding Murfreesboro. As you well know, Murfreesboro is home to three of our grand children and someday we are going to want to settle down somewhere. Being that the other three grand children live in the frigid north, it won’t be there. Further, our daughter now lives in a champagne area and we only have a beer budget so it won’t be there either.
Tennessee offers a climate and the centrality that is most suitable to our lifestyle and travels. Right now we are looking for a parcel of land where we could install hook ups for one or more RVs and be able to build a small home in the future. Don’t worry, we won’t be “coming off the road” for another three or four years (remember the beer pocketbook?).
We found several communities that could easily fit the bill for our future home sweet home. East of Murfreesboro there is the town of Woodbury (also, Bradyville and Readyville). Then south of Murfreesboro there’s Eagleville and Chapel Hill (also, Unionville). We are currently looking at places no further than 30 minutes away from Murfreesboro; after all, it’s all about grand children!!
We haven’t looked at any specific piece of property at this time; that’s for future trips to this area. Yesterday was just an overview with lots of fact finding (things like amenities, churches, taxes, restrictions, etc., etc.) left to do before we nail down an area. So, it will be an ongoing process for awhile yet.
Our time here in Tennessee is growing short. Before we know it, we’ll be setting up housekeeping back at the Plantation – Rainbow Plantation, that is, in Summerdale, Alabama. It will seem nice to get “home” again after our six month jaunt.
Today is a work day and a grand child day. I suspect there will be pictures again tomorrow from the proud grand parents. Take Care, Have Fun, and God Bless.
