|We have been working at the ranch all week. We cleared brush, cleared some
brush, then cleared a little brush. We have made some progress. We got a
crossing put in, so now we can actually drive into the place. We had all 1000
feet of the electricity staked, paid the outrageous $3690.00 charge (for only
three poles!) and cleared the required 20 foot wide path so they can come put
our electricity up tomorrow (01/31.)
With all the mesquite we've been cutting down, we had lots of wood, so I spent
an entire afternoon hauling loads of logs to the barn and stacking them up.
Surprisingly, they fell over. So much for my first log-stacking attempt.
|Since we've been working so late, we had the opportunity to see some beautiful
sunsets on our drives back to Brady.
|Most importantly, the well digger is coming tomorrow. $10.00 a foot to dig,
whether he hits water or not, plus $100 per hole. He will dig as many as we let
him. Then if (okay, let's be positive, when) he hits water, it's another $5.50 per
foot to put the casing in, then who knows how much for a pump.
So, tomorrow afternoon we will have water and electricity, then we can move
our RV out to the ranch. Yeehaw!
