Default Hello from Washington State

[b]Hello from Washington!!!

Where you get all four seasons of weather in one day!

I was turned on to BWH magazine from a redneck hillbilly friend of mine as I was once a citified cross dressing poser ( suit/ to camo) (get your mind out of the gutter :-) )and came to the realization that I needed to get back to my roots and with the NWO and Neocons along with thier banking buddies who are running our country to the ground, it was now more than ever.

So on April 15th of this year my Bride of 12 years, our 15 year old son
2 Labs
4 Horses (we dont eat dog, horse or 15 year old kids)
The rest of the list we will happily eat
We love animals... they're tasty!
35 chickens
3 cows
4 pigs
are moving onto our 40 acre farm in Rural Porter WA (pop 26)
Our dreams are being realized as I have spent the last 10 years bow hunting this area for Elk, Bear and Deer and my wife is happy that she does not have to be a hunting widow any more and to finally finding a working ranch to hay and raise our animals
we have offically set the clock at 372 days until we are completely off the grid! With wind AND solar for the barn, house and arena and greenhouses.
30 acres of saleable orchard grass/timothy hay
and 10 acres of garden and homestead. Cant wait!!!

I will keep you all informed with a photo journal as we rehab the property and build our new house paying as we go
No mortgage here!

Let the journey begin!!

Don, Rian and Tyler

Take care and God Bless.
