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!

This occurred back on the 17th, but since then there has been several rain storms of which I got a total of .9 inch. Did wonders for the catchment though. About 3 months ago I had 850 gallons in the tank and now I have 950 gallons in it. Not knowing how much water I'd used in those three months I'd say I had to have done good by having 950 now.
This started last week when I woke up one morning with the bottom of my foot feeling like I had a bad stone bruise, but there was no sign of a bruise or any insect bites. My leg started aching from my foot up my calf a few days after that, but still no outward sign of a problem. This morning I found the red on my foot and leg and I was noticing my thy was also aching. Further inspection shows that there is a red strip all the way up my leg nearing my crotch. I've also been feeling lousy for days to so I suppose its an infection of some kind.
The Jeep might make it to Alpine, but then the VA probably wouldn't pay the hospital bill and I know the Jeep wouldn't make it to Odessa where there's a decent VA clinic so I think I'm screwed.
