The Journey Begins

This is the start of a new adventure. As of today, I received the signed contract on 70 acres about 35 miles ENE of Austin, TX. Over the course of the next several months, we will be building a house, selling a house, moving, and setting up a Cow-Calf operation. This web-log is setup to catalog the entire endeavor in order to provide guidance and inspiration for those of similar mindset seeking to gain more freedom and independence. I hope you’ll join along and offer your own ideas as we setup our new homestead at Amber Oaks Ranch.

    Thank you for sharing, John and Molly. There was no one at the Elgin Farmer’s Market last week. The weather did not go bad until 6:30 p.m. Big hail the size of baseball hit my backyard, 12809 Basketflower Cove, Elgin, TX 78621, and my next door neighbor and daughter, Lillian Luis Reyes Gates, 12813 Basket Flower Cove, Elgin, TX 78621.

    I always enjoy your newsletter. Weather permitting, I need to come early as you set up because I will b e 94 soon and must continue practicing social distancing.
