Hi everyone! First, I want to thank everyone on this site for answering so many of my questions in the past and for all of the other posts that I've read through that have provided tons of good information!
I posted a few months ago about my trip to the west coast and stay in Rincon. A lot has happened since!
My house here in Minnesota went up for sale at the end of June and as of right now there is a sale pending. Closing date is Sept 22!
We have airfaire booked for September 23. We are flying Southwest and I will be flying with my 11 lb Shih Tzu mix, Lolli, as a carry-on. A past post on here had said that Southwest doesn't fly animals to Puerto Rico, but that has changed, and they do allow pets now. I already have the reservation for her made.
We plan to book a vacation rental in Aguada, Rincon, or Anasco for 1 month and take that month to search for a long-term rental. I already have several vacation rentals saved on airbnb and several long-term rentals bookmarked from clasificadoes.
I plan to book a rental car for 1 week and hopefully find a truck to buy within that week. I am still a little worried about that process and how that will work out. I don't want to buy a vehicle that has someone else's fines attached to it!
We are the taking the "sell it all" approach to moving. We plan to pack as much as we can into luggage and ship the rest (USPS) that we can't live without. My boyfriend already sold his car and truck, and I have my car up for sale. My boyfriend very recently bought a total junker for $250 that will hopefully get us through until the move! It's definitely going to be a challenge to coordinate stuff up until the move. We plan to have a yard sale a little less than 2 weeks before the move and hopefully between then and the move we can get rid of everything else via craigslist, pawn shops, donating, etc.
If anyone is interested, I'll try to post more on here as we get more details figured out and as more things happen.
