My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

Well Maybe Tomorrow!
The trailer will be here until in the morning and then it should be moved out to the land. We made a SLOW trip to Alpine this morning because of maybe 200 feet of visibility at times. (FOG) I found a USB WiFi key at ALCO, a 15 foot USB extension cable at another place and a large plastic bowl to use as the dish. Got back here after stopping at the land and putting up most of the other siding and will finish that tomorrow. Also did a few other odds and ins before coming back here. I built the dish, but could not get the lousy WiFi key to find any network around here so no chance of it working out there. Guess I'll keep trying. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to more or less finish up the cabin so I'll be able to live there after the trailer leaves. I'll have heat from a turkey cooker burner and propane tank and have a carbon monoxide alarm so should be safe doing that. Until I can get some sort of working dish the gizmo I built the other day will be the only way to go online or make calls via the cell phone from there.
