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!

Sorry... No pictures this time. I'm trying to get ready for the return trip and still have a lot to do. I've managed to accomplish a lot while here thanks to the help from family. With me being sick and not feeling much like working on the falcon my brother in law did most of the work of replacing the radiator hose and adding the thermostat so I now have heat in the old bird. Also got the exhaust leaks fixed on both sides rather then the one I thought was the only side leaking. Got a small dish that should improve the internet connection from my cousin, some cooking utensils I bought and was given by my sister, Food from my aunt and some I bought at wally world. Also got my mom's old microwave that had been stored at my sister's house. There is an 8 foot dish I could have for the cell phone hot spot, but just no room on the trailer for it. The generator/battery charger is finished and functional. I hope to get to Lowe's early in the morning to load up on the stuff to finish up the Iron Dungeon along with a good heater and spare propane tank so I will have a backup. The turkey cooker will be moved outside for making my morning coffee and to cook on until the tank is needed for backup heating. Hopefully I'll get back down there early enough to make a showing toward getting the place nice and cozy for tomorrow night. I'm feeling a good bit better after taking antibiotics. If I don't watch out the Iron Dungeon is liable to become a lot closer to a home.
