Like Old Times

Ah, that time has come again…the time to MOVE!

To Shasta County, CA!  (it’s right in the middle of the border of CA-OR and Sacramento

Part of me is super excited to move again because it means traveling to a new place, discovering new environments, experiences new things and meeting new people.  But this time, it’s a little different, since I’ve been at my current residence for almost 2 years and have finally established myself.  It’s always hard to leave a place where you’ve made friends, started a relationship, memorized all the walking/running/hiking trails and such and just well, made a more permanent life.

But really, how could I pass up going here!?

I’m definitely stoked.  Scared, but stoked.  It’s always scary to start over in a new place and seeing as how I’ve done it almost 6 times in the past 4.5 years, you’d think I’d be used to it.  Nope.

This trip will be a short one, only six months, and then I have no idea what is going to happen.  The current job offers for my profession is finally being hit by the bad economy so there aren’t many things left to do…but we’ll see.  Things could always start coming back with the new year and changes, like a new or renewed president, so I’ll know then!

(This was January 2010 when I headed out to Florida for the second time)

I’m excited for the change though.  Whit and I have already discussed how we’re going to manage the distance (7 driving hours) so no worries there!  And we’re taking a nice hawaiian vacation before we leave, so we’ll be set for a bit.  But like I said, it’s a short time, so I’ll be back to bug him more often…lol. We’ll see where we end up after that!

So, anyone been up to Mt. Shasta or it’s surroundings?  I’m looking for nice little towns to visit and places to hike!  Or who wants to come visit me and play around in the mountains!?

    That place looks *amazing!* Congrats!!

  2. I just found your blog and am soooo excited! I can’t wait to read about your adventures in Mt.Shasta. One of my best-friends lives in Mt.Shasta as a search and rescue patroller on the mountain. She absolutely loves it. I am sure you will as well!

  3. so fun! i recently moved too and it was scary but fun – i’m sure you’ll love it!

    You sound really positive about the move, and I’m happy for you! It’s neat that you have a profession that takes you different places. I think you’ll look back on this time and feel a sense of pride and accomplishment. I know I would – you’re awesome!

  5. how exciting!! love how you get to explore so many cool places!

    How exciting! I love that you are still so young that you can switch gears just like that and roll with it – take advantage of it while you can – before marriage, kids and a mortgage make it more difficult to change.

    I am so proud of you! Hugs, Biz

  7. I like the whole new place, new experiences aspect of moving, but I hate the actual moving. I don’t like change very much at all! I just applied to grad school and thinking about all the stuff (literal, stuff like junk) I’d have to move is overwhelming. So my goal is to get organized before the semester starts!

    The place you’re headed to seems nice though — lots of outdoorsy stuff to keep busy with. GOOD LUCK!

  8. really excited for you as i htink that looks like an amazing place to go…but of course a small part of me is like WAHHH i wanted you back in FL. :)

  9. I have a few friends up that way. They absolutely love it, so much so that they continuously decline my pleading to move near me. :) Don’t know much about the area, except that if you go a bit further north, you’ll end up in Weed, California.

  10. love how whit encourages and supports you no matter what. he’s a keeper. When is your official move date? You missed those mountains girl and you are getting them!
