    Who has 2 thumbs and is insanely jealous? This guy! My wife and I bought our first place a little over a year ago. Just a quarter acre in a little 1000 person village. It's nice for the village lifestyle but we're still close enough to city conveniences, and the house is plenty big and I have a 3 car wide by 2 car long detached garage, but with 40 acres and a pond, dang!
    I expect you'll be harvesting your woodland and using your pond to make some nice aquarium driftwood?

    20 gal tall - Helios - HM Betta Male, 1 rasbora het, 2 rummy tetras, 1 glowlight tetra, 1 additional tetra, 1 zebra nerite, 10-15 cherry shrimp, Java Moss and crypto planted tank w/ Driftwood and Spider Wood

    Thanks so much guys!! I'm just dying to share this with people. Thank you for giving me an outlet to do so here.

    I haven't made the announcement to my friends and all of my family yet, so this is nice. :)

    Ya know, I have no idea if there are fish in that pond..... Lol! What I do know is that is serves as a water source for all the wild life that lives out there. We're talking coyotes, deer, racoons, bobcats, owls and who knows what else. It's very exciting for me. I just love animals!!!

    As far as we know we won't be cutting down too many trees. We will be clearing brush and thorns, but we like the privacy and the feel that the woods provide. :) I think I've mentioned before that I'd be better suited to the life of a hermit. Haha!

    I feel so blessed to have found this place. A friend of ours who actually will be our neighbor told us about it before it hit the market. After we signed our contract with the lady who owns it she started getting all kinds of offers on it.

    As for walking around the place, I’ve already done it once, and unless there is an emergency I don’t think I’ll be doing it again. SHEW that is a walk. The rolling hills of Kentucky right?

    What we def WILL be doing is raising some livestock, planting a nice garden, and all that good farm stuff. I see such an opportunity to help my family become more self-sufficient. Nothing extravagant, not going into business, just living the best we can. I’m so excited to be able to actually DO something about my bad feelings towards the livestock industry. I HATE the way animals are treated in these factory style places where animals are raised in deplorable conditions. This way I can raise chickens, have eggs, raise 3 or 4 cows, have meat, and all knowing that I gave them everything they deserved before they ultimately served their purpose. My own little rebellion of sorts! Haha! And all because of this place.

    I really look forward to sharing this journey with you. Thanks for caring. 

    In rural places like that people just drive 4x4s and a big condensing grin. At least that's how they handle it in Scandinavia.

    How far are you from the biggest town/city? And what's it population?

    Just seeing how rural you realy are !!

    Congrats on getting your first home that is your own...
    You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.
