Open-Ended Tour Update: It’s a “GO”

After weeks of intense cogitation, I’ve decided to embark on an open-ended bicycle tour this fall. I’ve given my landlord notice of my intention to move out by October 29th, 2011. Launch day will be sometime in October; based primarily on how quickly I can finish clearing out my house (a process that began just after I moved in two years ago). I’ve reluctantly decided I’m not going to try to bring my dog on tour, so I also need to find her a new home.

Sarah is a 10-year old black-lab mix. She’s about 42 pounds, housebroken, non-destructive, current on shots, in good health and very friendly with both people and other dogs.

Unwilling passenger.

She gets along with cats in that she will ignore them as long as they ignore her. She is crate trained and has her own crate, although I haven’t had to keep her in it while I’m out of the house in well over six years. She enjoys walks and playing frisbee. I’ve had her since she was about six weeks old and, while it breaks my heart to give her up, I think finding her a warm place to live is the responsible thing to do rather than dragging her along on this crazy adventure of mine, especially given the fall launch date. (We tried sleeping in a tent in the back yard this weekend and it was a disaster.)

I’m also holding a yard sale next weekend: Saturday September 10th and Sunday September 11th, 8 A.M. – 4 P.M. Big ticket items include the futon, loft bed frame with built-in desk, workbench, kitchen table and coffee table. There are also bicycle parts. If you’re in the area please come by and  buy stuff! Prices will go down over the weekend, but I expect the good stuff will go first. 3600 block of Boardman St in Minneapolis, MN.
