We’re HOME!

I have said it before, and I’ll say it again. I’m a terrible blogger.

Here we’ve been moved onto the Homestead for 10 days and I have yet to blog about it. Ya’ll were probably wondering what happened to us.

Well, we’re here. We’re happy. And we’re tired!

Bachan and Pagee are all settled in. We still have a few systems to set in place for them to make it for the next year or so comfortably. But, for now, they are doing good.

The Hubby and girls and I are still roughing it as we get our trailer situated and figure out our utilities. It’s been 10 days and we still don’t have all of our stuff unpacked. Seems we collected quite a lot while living in Oregon. I tell ya, the more space you have, the more stuff you collect to fill that space!

And on top of all that, our trailer was used as storage for the two years we were gone. I think we’ve pretty much gotten all the extra stuff out now (finally) so now it’s just figuring out how to put away everything!


We’ve also been busy setting up our outdoor living area. It rained the first week we were here (did Nevada want Bachan and Pagee to feel at home or something??), and now it’ turned off hot, so we needed to get our shade shelter up.


But even when I had to stop and find a spot that gets good cell signal so I could get some office work done, there hasn’t been one moment I haven’t been glad to be back.


So that’s just a quick update. I have quite a few blog posts to write about our experience so far. Now that Hubs has gotten a good phone charging station set up in our trailer and I’m no longer having to charge my phone in the van, I feel like I can use my phone to blog more often.

I also figured out that I can write the post offline and let it upload whenever I get enough signal. Duh!

So yeah, we’re home. It’s going to be a long journey till we’re settled in our house, but we’re here. And that’s what matters.

And we’re so glad you’re following along on the adventure with us!

About Maridy

Hi, I'm Maridy. I have many interests in life. Right now, my husband and I and our two girls (ages 14 and 7), along with a couple of dogs currently live in a 33ft trailer while we build our house on our homestead property in Northern Nevada (Castle Rock Homestead). Follow us on that journey to building our high desert homestead from the ground up! I also have a passion for hiking and have a blog for that, too. (Journey in the Wilderness) Join me there as I explore the beautiful outdoor landscapes of Northwestern Nevada and Eastern California. And finally, I love historical costuming. Though I haven't been able to do much of that in recent years, I'm hoping that "once the house is built" I'll be able to get back into it more. See what all we've done with that on my Yesteryear Productions blog.

    Hooray! I’m glad everything has gone well! Good luck finding storage space for everything! You might do as we did and build a shed for storage. Looking forward to hearing more!
