You may remember, several months ago, when I mentioned relocating to another area mainly because of new neighbours that bought the property about 200 yards from mine. They have been a pain in my rear-end, with loud “music” blasting up into the night, screaming and hollering, ATV’s racing to the end of the road and turning about 75 yards from my place.
And to top it off after they moved in one of my dogs was shot (on my land) my fence cut and some of my tools stolen. No, they have not been an asset as neighbours should be – it’s impossible to have respect for others when you have none for yourself…
The good news is, I’ve found a new place and will be closing the deal Monday – it’s 5.46 acres of level land on a hilltop overlooking the area below. There is an old mobile home still on the property that will have to be removed (it’s in too bad of a shape to savage), luckily, I’ve had several people ask about moving it for me. They want to scrap it for the metal and copper wiring, but I may do that myself…:-D
The property is surrounded by forest and is only about one mile from the border of the Big South Fork national forest so hunting and foraging opportunities should be plentiful.
Moving will be a lot of work but I think it will be worth it – I’ll have more room for projects and self-sufficiency with 5.46 acres. Granted, my 2 acres was plenty but now I have room for more goats LOL.
Besides finding another home, this week I ordered several books (and a movie) including - The Laurel’s Kitchen Bread Book: A Guide to Whole-Grain Breadmaking, A Garden Supper Tonight, Herbal Antibiotics: Natural Alternatives for Treating Drug-Resistant Bacteria (Storey Medicinal Herb Guide), Tracking–Signs of Man, Signs of Hope: A Systematic Approach to the Art and Science of Tracking Humans and a movie They Live.
What did you do to prep this week? Come on, don’t be shy let us know in the comments below…
