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.
