Going home is hard work!
I have to say that the decision to get off the road has so far seemed to be a very good one. I am realizing how many different things I have missed out on when I was out on the road.
I have a very good job opportunity lined up starting next week once all of the pre-employment tests are done. I will be able to make at least around 700-1000 a week and be home to work on the many many projects out here on the farm. I really need to make a priority list to start to get things lined up and moving once I have a work schedule down.
I think one of the first things we are going to start working on is a rain water catchment system. I was surprised at the information I have found on it. There was a great pdf file from the Texas agricultural system that really breaks the system down on what you need etc. It's interesting the popularity of this type of system that is rapidly growing.
We discovered that the farm has an old cistern. The problem is that it hasn't been used in decades and would need quite a bit of repair. It is pretty big, estimates put it over the 4200 gallon range if not larger. We have to determine if it is worth it to repair it or just to go with an above ground tank system. I will take a few pictures of it and post them on the next blog entry as we figure out if we can use it.
I have to say things are looking interesting.
