Default Well...

Not technically about fishing, but I'll get to that.

I have been absent for a while, and that is primarily because many things have been changing. Tonight, I did something I've dreamed of my whole adult life... I signed on a house and land.

I'd like to post some pictures here for reference. 2800 sq. ft., 3 acres of land, and an out-building.



Back Deck: (Notice the "sky deck" above the deck... this is a private deck off the master suite upstairs)





View from the back deck:





Some stone stairs that pre-date the house... Likely leading down to where the original cabin was:





My out-building in the woods: (The view of the back deck <above> was taken from the out-building perspective)





Living Room area, open kitchen:





Kitchen:





A neat willow tree in the front of the house:





Anyway, I wanted to post this because it marks a new chapter in my life... One which will hopefully lead to great prosperity and happiness for my family. I'll be in debt for years to come, but at least we will be able to build equity... My 60-70 hour work weeks are paying off.


Anyway, the best part of it is, we are way out of the way, and only a stone's throw from our little honey-hole.




It's been a long hard road... From poverty to.... well, less-intense poverty. LOL!!

Worth every minute of it. Miss you guys. Hope to post more, once my move is done and we can wet some lines.

Well done buddy, guess you are not coming back here then. You do have a spot to park my 5th wheel there right?

To quote the movie Jeremiah Johnson...

You've come far pilgrim!

Congrats!!!

And indoor plumbing and everything in Tennessee!!!...looks like a keeper Owen!...

Imagine the sportsbook odds on you getting your own place with land in Tennesee before you got your first catfish!!!...

Really kewl...

Buck doesnt look too happy having to share the willow tree with sis!

All those tree's gotta be some scrap lumber and a tree fort site there somewhere!

Again congrats sir!!!
