Getting ready for Phase Two

Loading has begun

Prepping for Phase Two is hitting a fevered pace.

The water totes have been power washed, sanitized, and loaded. The grill has been sandwiched between totes for stability. The RV has had some much-needed maintenance and repairs, as well as some spit and polish. Tools have been sorted and boxed. Books have been sorted and boxed. Water, toilet, and power have been accounted for.

I have left my job here in Ohio for the final push on packing and loading, as well as some home maintenance on the Ohio property. We’re also prepping the kids for their duties in taking care of things while we’re gone. I have faith in their ability to do what needs done, but I’d like to make it as painless as possible.

The adventure is imminent. I am both excited and worried about forgetting things. Oh well. Sally forth!

It was time to finally get new equipment.

We have been busy feeding and watering bales to get ready for garden planting, moving the piglets to fresh dirt, and generally keeping things from blowing away in the wind storms we’ve had. Hubby decided to take the lawn tractor downfield and haul some more t-posts down for paddock gates. He shut it down for a few minutes to unload and… the lawn tractor wouldn’t start. It just sat their and clicked. It’s not the battery. We tested it with a new one. I guess that leave the starter or a solenoid? Anyway, we NEED our lawn tractor and the old one was going on seven years of age.

We decided to upgrade our mower and we purchased a trailer to bring it home and do some other things I’ve really been needing a trailer for. (Like hauling home livestock panels and hay) We’ll tow the old mower out of the back field and decide whether to try and fix it or take it to a repair shop. Either way, it’ll be going up for sale and hopefully find a home with people who need one.
