tooold - I totally understand what you are saying & respect your opinion. I realize their are thousands of couples that do what you do, & we have several friends that do so, also. I guess that is not where I was going with my comment.

I love & respect nature with a passion, & I guess that is what struck me about this human interest story. What they are leaving behind has to be difficult for them & has to be a difficult decision. That's just me though, & how I view it. At least it's not anything to do with politics. :) :) :)

These stories are a dime a dozen. If you have moved around to different cities in your life--half of the people you know or did know winter someplace. I just don't get it. I guess it is because I live in a place called God's country in the summer and in the winter travel to warmer places--but would realize there are thousands of couples that do this. Not newsworthy in my opinion.

I agree with JReader on this. The couple's love & deep appreciation of nature & all its gifts has been their life's dream. Giving it up is, indeed, a bittersweet decision. I, too, enjoyed the story & found it interesting. Good luck to them.

I think they call it a "human interest story". I guess I found the story interesting where this couple has such a great location to experience our wonderful outdoors & wildlife and are trading that in for the open road. For me, I'd find that a bittersweet decision and can see where it would be worthy of some ink - but that's just me.

I do not understand the publicity of this. It is just another couple moving on. The auction should be listed like any other auction. Who cares about all the other things about their life.
