Welcome to our Blog
In March of 2011 my wife and I quit or jobs, cashed in our chips and left the big city behind to move to our farm hidden away in northeast Georgia. These are our observations on the news of the day and our adventures in homesteading, becoming self reliant, prepping and living a simpler, more fulfilling life.

Sacrifice..... a word we know well
On September 11, 2001 we once again came under attack, a new kind of attack from a new kind of enemy, an enemy most knew little about. Thousands died that day and thousands more lost loved ones, family and friends. The sorrow and loss from that day so intense. The sacrifice forced on so many so extreme it has been embedded into the lexicon of our very existence. And like so many times before, patriots among us put themselves between us and those who would do us more harm. How many of us have friends or family who enlisted or re-enlisted after 911? I personally have several friends who re-enlisted and went to Iraq and Afghanistan. Fortunately they all have come back safe and sound. Yes we are blessed, blessed with a freedom so rare and fragile it is the only one like it in the world..... and blessed by those willing to sacrifice all they are to keep it safe.- JP
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."- Ronald Reagan
