Welcome to our Wyoming blog. On this blog I have been sharing how we came to move here and the 'adventure' we have been on every since. We started with a hillside, and today (6 years later) are finally putting in some landscaping. We are by no means done. I hope you will come along on our adventure.

I also have 2 other blogs. Big Horn Mountain Creations show cases my quilting and other artistic adventures. Decorating my Tin Shack, is about creating a home thru decorating. Both are on the side bar, I hope you will stop by.

Winter?? Spring??? Winter??? Which is it??

One day it is spring, nice warm and sunny the next it is cold and raining. I don't mind the rain to much, it is keeping the hills green. The problem is when your trying to pour cement.

This is what our "soil" looks like, it is very weird, it's in layers. The rain and wind cause it to sluff off and fill the areas around the future slab. We have dug it out once, and now it needs to be done again. This stuff gets really sticky when it is wet, it does dry out quickly though.















Cleaned out here. Now we are building this into the hill, encase your wondering why the dirt is so high.
















An overview of the first phase of the slab, with heating tubing installed. Now for it to stay dry long enough to pour, or the real issue to get a cement truck up on the hill and it not sinking in the mud. Grin.

Hi Gail. I was going through some of my older posts on my blog and came across your name -- didn't recognize it so I thought I'd pay you a visit. I also visited your other blog. What I find particularly interesting about this one - is your journey. My husband and I will be going on a similar journey in about 4 years. We live in North Carolina and go out to Colorado HIgh Country every year. This summer we are going to purchase a piece of property to do exactly what you and your husband are doing -- create a new life. I can relate to the enthusiasm in your voice as you write about your spinach that lived through the winter, and the cow "parade" and would love to hear more of your adventures. Are you and your husband building your own home? How many acres are you on? Where is the nearest town?
Can you e-mail me privately so we can chat?
