My wife and I bought some land a couple months ago. Now we are locked in deadly mortal combat (figuratively speaking) with the Washington County Planning Authority. Who would have thought one might need a stamped drawing from a geophysical engineer just to get a permit to grade for a driveway? (The good news is we're on the second most stable soil one can possibly be on.) The really good news is this: my wife consented to our staying in a duplex in town while waiting instead of in the sardine-can-on-wheels. I've got my BOOKS BACK from storage!! And once I unbury them from themselves, I'll have my TOOLS again! I won't be posting very regularly, but I will be able to check in a lot more often than I have been.
