Jess & Drew become property owners! Yeah, I know. You thought they bought lake front property, right? Well this is Joseph P. Stewart State Park, and it's where we had to be at 10:00 a.m. Thursday, July 17th on our way to Crater Lake, as it was about the only place that had cell reception. The lot in Virginia that they have been looking at for months, came up for auction while they were here in Oregon! So their realtor stood in for them at the auction as their proxy, but Drew needed to be in on the bidding via cell phone.
It was a beautiful morning, with a beautiful view of the lake while we waited for the call.
Half hour later, they are the proud owners of Virginia property, having saved close to half the asking price!
Wednesday evening after our adventures in Jacksonville, we left Jess & Drew to rest in the hotel while Dennis and I headed back up to Grants Pass to find our long lost friends and old neighbors, Ron and Linda. As we had the wrong cell phone number for them, we called Rissa at home and had her look up their address. Drew map quested it for us from the motel, and we set off on yet another adventure, hoping and praying they'd be home when we finally found their place 45 minutes later.
They were there! Praise the Lord! And they were as excited to see us as we were to see them. Finally we were able to see their new place that so far we had only heard about via email. It's beautiful and...they have water!

Congratulations to Drew and Jessie!
Hopefully, they will start their blog back up and share their excitement with us all!
