I'll be recording every step taken to go from mundane to insane and finally living a natural routine life.

Please stand by ...

New life under construction.

Plog! I like it! (presumably short for permies log or permaculture log?).

So many ideas swimming and churning sometimes boiling in our heads...

As we gather these thoughts, filter them and begin to plan our escape, we will continue working on getting a "Tiny" structure onsite at basecamp to work from.

Here's where the status of that is:

Just in case you don't see updates here on a daily basis, it's because we are still way over there in base camp.

see you soon.

Got to bring a friend (Denny) to the Ant Village he is definitely going to join the Ant community. I had a feeling a 2nd acre would be the right move. He's all about getting the village to become a "community", already found an awesome place to create a circle-type gathering place, surrounded by our hugel beds/berms. I'm excited about that in a big way, it was just a spot that happened to had tree stumps that outlined a circle shape perfectly.

We also couldn't help but notice the abundance of BERMs, I personally think we should refer to this as "Bermies" I plan to have a good time with that turn of phrase. Starting Friday we'll have a "Weekend at Bermies". I know that's an old reference, I'm old, it's what we do.

We put ribbon up (at least as much as the wind would allow) to get an idea of what kind of space we have to work with.

We met Jesse last night, shared out cookies and chatted, we're so close to getting moved in at the tiny house village, then it's full-time work out at the Ant Village. Dianne was so excited to see all the cool bit on the property that are all ready to go to the bottom of our Hugel beds.

One of her 1st goals is to do a full blown debris shelter to finish one. She's never been anywhere that she was allowed to make one completely.

I have a basic idea of what the layout of our respective parcels of land will look like, now we need to finalize the exact size & shape.

See y'all friday if not sooner.

Bob
