I hope this doesn't come as a huge shock. We decided to stay here in Bandon. The whole point of this trip was to assess the viability of residing here. Sure it's a small town, but it's doable. We found a studio above a candy store that is going for $550 with a view of the port and river. We saw a sign in the shop window. Classic! I was talking to my massage therapist (fan-bloody-tastic by the way) about how she ended up here and she convinced me that it's not such a far-fetched idea. This is our fourth trip up here in three years. I've talked to a lot of different people about how they make a living. There is a large retirement population here but that doesn't bother us one bit. Older people have the most interesting stories to share. It's time that we took the leap. We've relied on the safety net of our parents for far too long. Of course we'll have to go home first to wrap some things up, so all the people at home will get to see us off. Please don't be too sad. Young people need adventures. See you all soon. Anyone that is good at packing get ready because the packing might take a few years. *But now that you have reached the end. Notice the lack of job details. This is a wild dream that I suppose will always remain a dream.
