|1974 Carthage Maine|
With some close friends and my partner at the time, we bought 100 acres of an overgrown farm. There was about 80 years of growth, and I proceeded to carve out a homestead, meant to be self sufficient, and a place to find safety in an increasingly insecure world. Building that homestead gave me the skills to survive should the events of the time suddenly leave us without the resources we had all become so accustomed to.
What was meant to be an introduction is rapidly growing into the story I intend to unfold over many blogs, the telling of which will hopefully reveal what makes Maine the best place to be.
