You'll hear from myself and my wife Jaclyn, as we take the plunge and move three hours north of our old home, friends, and more, and how we adapt (or don't).You'll also hear from our two young kids occasionally, and what the move and new life means to them - the ups, the downs, the somewhere in the middle.While we may not have all the answers, we promise we'll give our honest feedback and thoughts about making this move yourself, and hopefully help you along the way.
