Hanford's Half-size Happy Ranch
3HR for short, we had a urban homestead in Western Washington. Family obligations have instilled a need to relocate. With my usual diligence, and vast amounts of time spent searching I found a suitable location. We made an offer on a 2 acre parcel and have now moved to waiting for final funding. The site will put us about middle between my grandmother and our camping property.
My grandmother is so happy we will be closer. I moved out here from Wyoming, after my other grandmother asked when I was going to come home to take care of her. Never a moments hesitation, I packed everything including my horse, goat, and guinea hens. Moved in with her and cared for her till it was time for nursing home. Life continues, met a great woman (pure city girl). And grandmother calls, grandpa is going down hill and she can't do it alone. I leave home 1am in a snow storm crossing the pass, to put Grandma to bed and take care of grandpa. I care for both till he passes, then her for another month. So I have always been there for them.
Then two babies, remodeling a house and building a urban homestead with multiple income streams. We are up rooting it all to be closer to family.
