First, my apologies to all whom are owed something from me (mostly email / PM responses but possibly more in some cases).
Second, I hate internet drama & this message may come across as some permutation of that - so, once again, my apologies.
My wife & I have been planning for many years to buy an RV (specifically a fifth wheel trailer) & travel the US (& Canada?) for months at a time - exploring & also investigating areas in which to 'retire'. We'll explore on foot, by bike & kayak (as well as vehicle) - fully armed with decent binoculars, curiosity & hopefully some camera equipment worthy of the additional weight. Part of this plan has always been to have a highland greenhouse filled with CPs & orchids & stuff upon settling outside of NJ. In my mind, these two things could co-exist. However, as plans for traveling started to become more concrete, weaknesses started to emerge. To address some of them, I designed an in-basement, highland room. As I moved forward with it's construction, I realized that it was not enough. I would not be able to create something that could be left for months & return with all inhabitants thriving (or possibly even alive).
This realization arrived in my head earlier this year (roughly in the spring) and along with it, the conclusion that I would need to lose my collection while we traveled. I've had CPs in my life (in some form) for over 30 years & the thought of being without them has tweaked my head in more ways than I could have ever envisioned. I've revisited my analysis & conclusions from many angles, always ending up in the same thoroughly uncomfortable, unsettling place.
Bottom line: as of now, 95% of my collection is gone & the last few Sarracenia will be gone around Thanksgiving. I suspect that my participation in various forums will continue as it has for the past few months (mostly nonexistent).
Depending on the vagaries of the future, I may yet end up in the PNW hosting a HL greenhouse, but for now, that vision is on hold.
