    I'mmmmmm Baaaaaaack

    The title makes me think of the drunk dad from Independence Day as he flies into alien space craft. I am coming home to my mother ship....lol.


    Its been awhile since I was on here regularly and wanted to give an update. In the spring of '15 we decided to make some changes for our benefit. I was spending ~4 hours a day in commuting to and from work. I was expecting to get a new supervisor and new that my scheduled work from home days would be numbered. Both kids would be old enough for all day school so my wife would be going back to work.

    Moved to an Apartment in May '15.
    Sold the house in Jun '15.
    Put kids in Private School for the 15-16 school year.
    Wife went back to work right after kids went to school full time.
    My scheduled work from home days were stopped in spring of '16.
    Paid off all student loans in fall '16.
    Bought house in winter 16.
    moved into house in spring 17.

    My commute is now 1 hour a day vs 4 hours...I pay ~$40/month to ride in employer sponsored Van Pool program, this is a huge benefit financially.

    New house/property is a little over an acre with shoreline to 3 acre pond.

    I am planning on implementing what I have learned about permaculture/food forests, wanting to do Courtnix Jumbo quail (eggs and meat in 6-8 weeks, very little space is needed), pasture based rabbits just like Daniel Salatin does at Polyface Farms. I will probably do a Square Foot Garden this year but will convert to Key Hole design garden in a raised bed form (I will post a video link about this).

    I got plenty to catch up on here so I will be spending time reading old posts and acquainting myself to all the new members.

    Good to see you my brother!

    Congrats on the house and getting the student loans paid off. Working off debt is a great feeling!

    Its great to be seen!

    There for a short period of time we were completely debt free....and then we bought house lol.

    Still only having a house payment is pretty good considering a lot of people have that plus cars + student loans + credit cards.

    I am looking forward to sharing some of the things I will be trying here at the new place.
