Upspin -- Putting together a how-to manual for other people who are getting ready to do a big move in their life


About Upspin
English (USA)

The upspin list takes its name from a yet-to-be-written book that we're collectively working on, tentatively entitled "Haul Your Ass UpSpin! (A How-To Manual for Transplanting Your Life)" The idea originally came from list member Wendy Cosgrove (nee Faust), who, after her move from the East Coast to California, suggested that we put together a how-to manual for other people who are getting ready to do a big move in their life.

If you have experiences/tips to share, or questions, please post 'em!
