Jeni has a new listing in our neighborhood. I must admit, I want it! It is so fun as it is, but it also has so much potential. Even considering the economy, this property has a great price.

 quonset-hut

I have to admit, I understand there are many people in this world who could never understand why I would want to live in a Quonset hut. I see so much more. Located closer to pavement than where I currently live is always a major consideration. The mud and snow of our unpaved roads is always a challenge. One I gladly accept, but life is easier when you’re closer to pavement up here!

Usuable Acreage
Usuable Acreage

This property is on 40 usable acres. You might not understand why I insert the word usable. I have horses, so when you live in the mountains, you have limited options for acreage. I need a chunk of flat land if I want to work with my horses at home. Owning acreage on a 30% slope wouldn’t do me much good. Then, this home can run off the grid. By having a generator and solar panels, the owner doesn’t have to be completely dependent on the electric company, which appeals to me greatly.

If I were the owner, what would I do to increase this homes potential?

  • Install a vertical wind tower to supplement power.
  • Add a green house because this property has sun to produce a lot of veggies!
  • Build a barn. I’m sure the horses and in-laws would appreciate the consideration.

That would be just the beginning!!!!!

color_geo300I was looking up geocache locations to see if more had been added to our mountain neighborhood. A couple of years ago, there weren’t many. Now? I’m thrilled I can walk out the back door and go searching! The closest to my house is only 3/4 mile away. Closer if I cut across the BLM land adjoining my back garden!

 

If you are not familiar, GeoCache is a network of hidden treasure that you find using clues and a GPS. You can get a free account at GeoCache and start searching your area. Then you return to the site and tell others about your hunt. This activity is enjoyed by people all over the world.color_citonotext150

 

In my opinion, this is the ultimate combination of technology and nature. Our family goes geocaching when we go camping all the time. Most of the caches we find in the desert are in old ammo boxes and usually contain a camera, logbook and various types of treasure. Our kids love to fill out the logbook and trade out the ‘treasure’.

 

If you haven’t heard of GeoCaching, logon and see what you have around you. If you plan to travel, this is a great adventure to add to your trip!

Snowshoe From Home!

Snowshoe From Home!

If you aren’t interested in skiing, snowshoeing is a wonderful way to get around. Especially the back country, where all is quiet and pristine. This is a relatively inexpensive sport but it is more physical than most people think.

 

When I take the kids sledding, near Mount Rose, my husband usually takes off shoeing. My husband is an extreme hiker. By that, I mean he goes places he shouldn’t and I can’t keep up! The last set of shoes I bought him for Christmas came with my version of a safety kit. That means I invested in GPS/walkie talkies so I can find him in an emergency.

 

Going off marked trails is dangerous. We hear news reports all winter about various situations that lead to SAR (Search And Rescue) operations. Even for experienced winter snow sport fanatics. That doesn’t worry him so I worry for both of us. I know he’s going to go, and I can’t stop him. But, if something happened, I have a way to find him.

 

He also goes off with a buddy who hikes mountains all over the world. They take off and come back with stories of the views and the animals they see and I realize there is an entire world here that most people never see. They never have to queue for a lift or worry about traffic on the slopes. It is probably one of the best kept secrets around. Not a lot of people, I know of, snow shoe and I’m not sure why. My husband went for the first time with a borrowed set of shoes from his buddy and I knew that he would enjoy this sport forever.

 

All a person needs to enjoy snowshoeing is access to go. Investing in the snowshoes wasn’t expensive. It can be, but I figured he could upgrade to something different or better when he knew what he wanted. The walkie talkies were a little bit more spendy, but not everyone has to go off the beaten path to have a good time! snow-shoe1

As I leave my house this morning, I’m worried about my horses. Every morning when I go out to feed, they are running around playing. The past week has brought us steady, but light, snow. Now the sun is out and as they walk on that snow, it turns to a sheet of ice.

About a year ago, a friend down the road had her horse slide right into a tree. The horse hit his pole and died instantly. It was a sad day, because at almost 3 years old, he had the makings of becoming a great partner for her. She burried him and wondered what we could do different to protect our buddies out on the ice. Unfortunately, we couldn’t think of a solution.

I keep my horses ‘barefoot’, so cleated shoes is out. Salt can get in there frog and cause burns. Topping the ice with grit isn’t practicle.

I guess I will continue to worry and hope the ice melts quickly. It is another part of life that we can’t control.

Snowy Sunrise Driving into Virginia City, NV

Snowy Sunrise Driving into Virginia City, NV

It’s snowing today and I love it! Our forest needs the moisture and water supplies need to be replenished. A muddy spring leads to stronger gardens, and since it is winter, I need exercise.

I’m prepared. I have my trusty shovel and quad with plow. These are definite necessities, living rural up in the mountains. My husband found the best shovel, years ago for me. It is a plastic bucket with a metal edge. I can scrape, or break, ice with it. And, more importantly, I can lift and toss snow. It isn’t heavy therefore I haven’t dreaded snow removal for years.

Our property is long, so our driveway is too. There is no physical way we could shovel the entire distance, so some sort of plow is a must. I admit to envy of my neighbors with tractors. There are so many projects that a tractor can make easier. But, I put my 4 wheeler and plow to just as good of use. In 20 minutes, I can clear my drive, gate, barn and parking spots.

In the summer, I attach a harrow to the tow ball and can drag the horse manure. This makes better soil for trees and my horses, as well as an earth friendly manner of disposal. I also make use of my snow shovel in the summer months. It is great for loading up some of the awkward piles of manure to haul for composting.

So here I am, completing winter chores and day dreaming about summer chores. Seasons remind me life is a never ending cycle!
