I know I’ve been suspiciously silent on this blog for a few weeks. That is because we’ve been up to something, something secret. And now we’re ready to share!

We’re moving to Dawson City, Yukon ! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Jeff has accepted a job offer with the Territorial government and we’ve got less than 3 weeks to downsize, pack, clean and sell our house, and then travel the 8,000+ km to Dawson!

Luckily, we’ll be able to move into a government rental house in Dawson City which makes this easier. We’re hoping our house will sell in Nova Scotia quickly with a reasonable price, but the breathing room to have a place to live while this house is on the market is a relief. Our meeting with the real estate agent is tomorrow and on Saturday we’ll be having a moving sale to try to downsize drastically so we have less to move.

We visited Dawson just a year ago and in a way we never left. We think about it every day, look at their weather every day, their webcam of the river, all the news and websites, dream and imagine life in the Yukon, and somehow this is all just easily falling into place.
