A few emails trickled in wondering about the status of this adventure. The adventure is alive and well. The homestead has reached a level of sufficient comfort to my liking and is on auto pilot when it pertains to projects that might be worthy of a blog post.
Life has taken different directions in other areas and supplied distraction from blog maintenance, but rest assured, the dream is alive and well in Montello!
I'm walking along one day in the middle of living life and I realize that I'm living some other guy’s life. I expect he’d be happy to have it back, but I gave up looking for whom to give it back to a while ago. Don’t remember when he left it with me and I’m not sure I’ve entirely enjoyed its company. I guess I’ll hang on to it for a while and maybe one day I’ll run into that old boy.
