I know there are some subscribers to Backwoods Home Magazine (BWH) at this forum, so this is likely old news to you. But for those of you who know Jackie Clay, I just thought I'd let you know that her husband died. IMHO, Jackie Clay is probably the best homestead writer/expert out there. I like her stuff better than Carla Emery. She writes for Backwoods Home Magazine. Last year, Jackie and her husband and her 14yo son moved from Wyoming to northern Minnesota. The last few issues of BWH is all about them setting up thier homestead. Her husband died of a brain hemmorage at the young age of 58. He was a Vietnam Vet, was affected by Agent Orange, and was dealing with PTSS. Jackie's current situation is living way back off the road in an old, used mobile home with her son, and both parents (ages 88 and 93!).
