Sounds like you're having as much joy as I am. I'm only 200 mi. from my official residence, but it may as well be 10 times that. I'll shoot you a PM when I've the time.
As for TR, and the new platform, I'm totally lost there now. So much of my account related data are either gone or findable only by a persistent Basset that it's like starting over. And, given the unwieldy and obfuscating UI, I'm disinclined to put much effort into that, particularly when I've such great demands on my time from other quarters. Pity, as there are/were some great people there.
My husband's mother is in extremely bad health, and going senile to boot. We're moving to Florida. Bah. I've been here since the first weekend in March, handling things while she's been in hospital and rehab. And until he can retire and get here permanently. Then, I get to go home to handle making that place marketable - whether to rent or sell, I think we don't care right now. I'd prefer to keep it, I don't want to live in FL. We'll be here until she passes, likely taking turns. *sighs*
Been out to TR since the big site revamp? Bad move for TR. :(
With the AC on the fritz - money be funny here too - and my nature intolerance of heat and humidity, the rapid succession of heat waves have taken a severe toll. And, the pinched nerve in my neck picked a most inopportune time to re-visit. Still, I'm on the right side of the grass; so, could be worse.
In addition to White Pine, have two Pin Oaks hard hit, along with a seventy foot long row of mature Arborvitae that looks like evergreens trying to mimic Weeping Willows. Of the latter, one it listing at roughly a 30 degree angle; another has one of it trunks broken about 4 feet off the ground.
Plenty of free firewood to be had here, both soft and hard.
