We bought a home in Wauchula ! We will be moving down in the near future,before Bensen Days I hope.
Our place in North East Ala. is up for sale. I just was not able to take care of it as was needed. To old to mow the five acres and maintain it ,getting old sucks !
If some one needs a great "bug out " place this is it. I raised everything that we needed for the past eight years and enjoyed it very much.:Cry:

I can't express the joy of having you two so close by. Congratulations and see you in a little. My Cherokee brother let me know if I can help you with the moving. I got a good size trailer and wouldn't mind the drive. I know where to go now :)

Bud may be a bit sad for you leaving AL large property but good for gyro scene near Tampa.

Bud- I have only been around you for a brief time at each Bensen Days 2005-2012. I gained an enormous amount of respect for you from my own observations, and hearing others talk about you.

Go enjoy a life of leisure you so deservingly have earned.
