Sorry for the lack of updates on all things swampy...Treebeard and I have been a tad busy of late. Work has been crazy - lots of programming and natural resource management to do at each of our parks, and then there is our big adventure of starting our house. That's me on the tractor, bush-hogging part of the property where we plan to put the house. Treebeard did most of the mowing today while I limbed and bucked the trees he felled yesterday, but I did take a turn on the tractor to escape the chainsaw for a few minutes.
The wheels are in motion, and it looks like we will eventually have our own place after living in park housing for the past 28 years. Yikes! I'll try to keep you posted on how things are going. Please think good thoughts for us - this is uncharted territory and we are scared to death :)
