Comments on: This Month On The Homestead: Turkeys, Foxes, And A Fisher Cat! http://www.frugalwoods.com/2018/02/20/this-month-on-the-homestead-turkeys-foxes-and-a-fisher-cat/ Financial independence and simple living Wed, 12 Dec 2018 19:05:05 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.8 By: Escape to MI http://www.frugalwoods.com/2018/02/20/this-month-on-the-homestead-turkeys-foxes-and-a-fisher-cat/#comment-92374 Thu, 22 Feb 2018 05:36:40 +0000 http://www.frugalwoods.com/?p=16613#comment-92374 It’s interesting reading about how outdoors your life is in the winter snow. Whenever we talk about our plan to leave California for Michigan we get horrified looks and dire warnings about the winter. The truth is when it’s 110 degrees for several months straight, it’s actually a lot more limiting than just strapping on the right gear and heading outside. Give me that fresh clear air of winter any day! I find I want to move in the cold whereas the makes everything feel like too much effort.

I love winter hiking, but I haven’t had a good one in almost two months, as we’ve been having way too many rainy weekends lately by us in NY. At least I’m getting my nature reservoir filled up vicariously by your awesome wildlife sightings and winter photos—so thanks! (But one yearns for a “real” nature fix, which is a big part of why I’m slowly working my way toward FI.)

In the south of England we rarely get snow and then usually only for a few days. However we do have loads of foxes that come right into the towns and badgers, but no wild turkeys (they sound like fun). The foxes are really bold and curious and often follow me and my dog when we go for evening walks around the block. Love reading your blog and your writing style, its really entertaining with a real peaceful ethos to it. Thanks.

Cheers.

I live off the grid in a quarry that was first used to build a spill-over dam meant for the “water works” here in Council Grove. That was the eighteen nineties. It was used again in the thirties as a source of rip-rap along the road to our city lake.
The quarrymen covered it all back up when they were finished and a two acre woodlot of Walnut, Hackberry, and Black Locust colonized it.
I’m “county” meaning my 200 square foot travel trailer doesn’t have to comply with any of the proliferating city ordnances. I haven’t been this happy since I was seven years old.
I have the Nuthatches, Chickadees, and Fox Squirrels by day and the game cameras monitor the Red Fox, Barred Owl, Racoon, and even the occasional pack of Coyotes who wake me up and give me goosebumps.
Some of the Futurists claim we’ll ultimately all be city dwellers.
They don’t know us very well.

Best wishes.
Edgar

Coming from Minnesota, winter is one of my favorite seasons. It is always such a bummer when people get down on it instead of embracing the weather!

Can’t wait for your book to come out! A family member preordered the book for me as a Christmas gift. I’ve been counting down to its release.
