We're Over Another Hump!

With a sigh of relief that could probably be heard as far away as Carson City, we passed our State and County inspections. Honestly, I never expected to make it this far. I was certain that we had completely missed something that would cause us not to be up to code, or that some terrible disaster would befall the ranch moments before an inspector showed up. I spent hours wondering why, not if, we would fail. But nothing went wrong; Mr. McCloud and Mr. Korson (State and County inspectors, respectively) have graciously cleared the way for us to fulfill our life’s dream.

We can legally live at Midian Ranch.

Now we are free to sell our home in California and, at long last, move out to our beloved ranch. There are a variety of non-Midian matters that have to be taken care of first; but, God willing, we should be totally relocated in either March or April. Of course, there are still a million short-term things that need to be done to the place, not to mention years of backbreaking labor to turn it into the home we have spent the last half-decade visualizing in our Mind’s Eyes. Tina and I have spent countless hours – at breakfast, late at night when the lights are out, while driving – talking about the many, many things we wish to do with Midian Ranch.

Now, we shall have a chance to do them. Even if we fail, can one ask for more from life?

Well since you're asking, I would ask for Jessica Alba to dust the top shelves wearing one of those skimpy
French Maid outfits...but thats just me.

I am happy to see that you and Tina have finally made it. I made a break for the desert myself Tucson. I miss the city and all of its noise, but nothing can compare to self sufficiency. You inspired me Jason. I think about you from time to time, good luck to you and your family.

Cheers,
