    Finally got around to installing a hitch on my Jeep.

    Called the dealership (I mean... stealership ) and they wanted to do it for $432. I thought that was way excessive. So, yesterday on my day off I got dirty and removed the bumper and installed the new one!



    Sorry, I guess I didn't take a picture of the final product!


    But it should look like this:

    Well here is an update on our little project. Sorry pics aren't so great. Have to get out the camera sooner or later. The phone is just very convenient.

    If my measuring is correct, we have cleared just under 20 acres and added 2 ponds. I think we are going to work on doing the exterior to the house this coming year along with fencing and starting to use the cleared property.. Afterwards we will figure out whether we want to clear more or leave it as it is.

    Nice!! I always wonder, do you get to know every inch of it, or is it too much for you alone to attend to? The most I ever had was 2 acres, and it took me a few years to know what kind of trees I had!

    Well I have walked it many times and know the landscape and area well for sure. But there is no way I know what every tree is . I just know there are a bunch of them.

    I have a hill with a pretty good view if you are up for it.

    One more question.....is it for farming, animals, real estate purposes, or do you just like owning loads of property?

    We bought it as our retirement property. The idea is to have a small farm to tend to in retirement while limiting our bills and making a little extra money, and dealing with critters which we love doing anyway . Right now the only thing on grid on the property is the electric. If I can get to it, I'm going to install solar and wind with a backup gas generator and get totally off grid. We have planted 16 fruit trees, put in 1600 sq ft garden and are planning to ad Chickens, Ducks and Sheep to the property. When we get that far, we willl figure out the rest.

    Note: I would hardly call it loads, we are very small compared to what is around us. But we do love the country, the mountains and the solace it provides.
