Our Army daughter got her station at FT KNOX and a promotion to MSG. Sold their house in CA up by SFB Area.

Bought a 4 year old 4 br, 2.5 bath full livable finished basement on 1.6 acre. She asked us to move in. We seen the facetime she showed us and are planning a trip up there in late Aug to check it out. She said it will get you both out of the rv crap and in a stable house. Dad you have lots of room, yard and garage......YAY

Put the 5th wheel on blocks, winterize it and sell it.

Lexington area.

Soooooooo

More to follow.

Heck i think i know how to wear pants again :emoji_laughing::emoji_laughing::emoji_astonished::emoji_astonished::emoji_astonished:

Sounds like that will work best for all of you, but what about your bread beat down in Florida? How will they get by without you? Lol
Congratulations, if it all works out, might even be able to fix up a cure chamber again! Look out.

Sweet will be nice to have the space again. I did some training at Knox once...........most importantly you will be close enough to make the Tennessee gathering in the spring!

Lived in the area many years ago. Upper Kentucky has very mild winters, well compared to my Minnesota upbringing and similar to my many years in the Seattle area.
If you enjoy raspberries, that is is just enough kiss of the cold to make them produce berries.

Congrats to her on the Master. Not familiar enough with military rotations to know how long she intends to stay at the Knox and pass up rank.
