ISLAND CONTRACT IN WORKS!
You know when you meet JUST the right person at JUST the right time? I've been looking for an island for just over two years, and we've connected with a family trust owns private islands on the Mississippi River. Last year we were moving forward with a different island on a Minnesota lake...but things fell apart. Gotta admit it was really hard to let it go, but there was a peace too that if we were to get an island, it would happen in just the right time. Then this just came together. BOOYAH!
More details later, but just a teaser: it is somewhere on this map on the Mississippi River Pool 2. I'm not going to announce the location until the paperwork is signed and it is REAL, REAL. But jumping binky bunnies -- we're getting close!!
