Hyzing-ga! A new post

Well, we finally have internet out at the homestead. We’ve recored videos, edited videos, and then have no way to get them out onto the interwebs, it’s been a long silence from the homestead. But that is all changing right now as we have a massive pole (liberality 13′ above the roofline of our 5th wheel and I call it our lightning rod) that brings us a little closer to being connected without paying massive stupid dollars on our cell phone bills. Still, not the greatest internet connection around, but so far it’s reliable and wan’t take all of our saving to maintane.

With this new excited I made a rather long video to update y’all on what’s been happening. And in a way, it’s really not that much. It’s amazing how much anything is when it’s just you, just your family, just the people closest to you-the people you share a dinner table with every night, and it’s just us to do this work. I am amazed at what my wife can do, and is wiling to do. I’m talking heavy lifting, carrying, moving stuff, handling animals and things that a lot of good folks simply would not do. Including living in a 5th wheel. With 4 kids. And homeschooling. I’m saying even though it might not seem like there is not much progress, but when you’re doing everything with cash, on the cheap, and with the resources that you have at your immediate disposal (stuff you own) things might not go as quickly as a corporately funded or mortgage project. And we’re okay with that. ¬†We are doing things we love. Learning things that are amazing. And the ability to slowly take it in, and begin to understand what is going on; it’s incredible.

It seems like we are living life in slow motion out here on the homestead as compared to our “American Dream” that we’ve brought up in. I still think time goes by too fast, but things are moving slower out here, but it’s because we’re making sure we are enjoying every moment, and taking it all in. I don’t care if our progress is slower than has ever been done before, we are living the life we love, and choose.

Cheers,

Jeremy
