Unconventional Thinking

I wrote a blog a couple of days ago as a precursor to something we are planning on doing that is probably a little unconventional. We are getting ready for the weekend where we are going to move out on our land in a motor home.

This will be a weekend thing as I have to work during the week where there is internet access and we don’t have that set up yet out on the land and I don’t think working in the back room of a motor home would really work too well. So we are considering this a hybrid, semi permanent way we can make the jump into moving out on the land but still have some semblance of a normal life during the week. Hopefully we can get a house plan together before the snow flies.

So maybe it’s not that unconventional if you just consider us going every Friday, Saturday,and Sunday and camping all weekend. Our kids are actually excited. Ringo called dibs on the bed above the drivers seat and Molly has her stuff ready to go.

We’ve been preparing Elvis and Shorty’s motor home which they so graciously lent us for the big event and we’ll hopefully be set by 6pm Friday night.

I’m hoping this will be a good move. Milly says we’ll have to become better friends as the quarters are rather close.

I went down and checked on the trees and garden tonight. Looks like the deer are keeping their distance. I’ve had suggestions for keeping them away from getting a dog to urinating on the ground around the trees. I haven’t done either yet.

I’m hoping being out there in a motor home will dissuade the filthy beasts. We are also building a fence around the garden. Milly’s uncle had some old posts and I found some page wire that had been discarded by previous owners so hopefully we’ll get something put together that will work. I’ll take pictures so everyone can laugh at our exploits.

Anyone in the mood to camp this weekend can join us out on The Simple Farm. Bring your own tent.
