Under the Radar

Sorry I have been 'under the radar' lately, I have checked many of your blogs as I could but as I will explain I have not had good internet service.

In the past few weeks I have been working on a small mountain farm my wife and I purchased in the North Georgia mountains, it is about 9 miles from town and until recently I had to travel to town to receive a WI-fi service.

 The property was badly neglected and needed a lot of clean up. I have spent days on the tractor cutting hay and trying to make it workable.

I hope to be able to post more in the coming days as time allows. Right now I am living in two places at once and traveling over 400 miles back and forth to Florida every few weeks to take care of business.

It has been raining here fairly steady for 2 days now and is not expected to let up for a while so I am using the chance to catch up on my blog.


Hope you all have a good weekend and stay safe.

    1. Hi Kymber, I am sure you thought I had dropped off the face of the earth, I will post more pictures as I can. The property does have a spring and a small year round creek which attracts a lot of wildlife. Thanks for stopping by my friend.
