Just thought I would say "Hello"....I have been lurking a long time and it seems like I already know most of you...thought it was time to actually register and participate some. I have been of the homesteading way of life for a really long time. I have 18 acres in South Central Kentucky and I am finally putting a house on the thing to make "the move" from town....It has been a long time coming. I am married to a "city feller" which made this whole process take longer than it should have. But after 17 years of marriage and much compromise, the "big move" will happen. He is a "great guy" he just didn't know anything about country living...He is finally converted. Last weekend his family from the city visited and when we took them out to the farm they wouldn't get out of the truck for fear of getting dirty....."He" realized how much "He" had changed ...Now, he has "grasped" the dream and it is "our" dream instead of "my" dream....Believe me it was worth the wait....Thanks to all of you for the knowledge, enthusiasm and encouragement you bring to this forum..
