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.

To quote the movie Jeremiah Johnson...

You've come far pilgrim!

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!!!

Congratulations, Opry. That's a big deal. Great looking spot you have there. Definitely would have been harder to buy a place like that here. Happy for you, man.

Thanks fellas... I'm glad to be able to finally call a place "my own."

This house and land meets all our needs at 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2 stories plus a partially finished basement.

3 kids now... We are going to need every inch of that place as they grow. :)

Any of you fellas find yourselves out this way, feel free to drop me a line. Youre always welcome.

First night in the new house... Crazy.

Truck is still half full, so tomorrow will be a big unloading/unpacking day. I'm beat!!!

After move in/unpack tomorrow, I plan on taking the boy down to the honeyhole to get some fishing done. Hope to have a report for you guys soon... Internet won't be up til Monday, so the report may have to wait til then.

Peace and Chicken Grease.

Congratulations!

It's good to see the new house and even better to see that you still put fishing with the kids first. Awesome stuff!

Thanks Doc.

And thanks to you too, COS... All you need to know about me is that suck at fishing. Oh, and that I am a foil-hat-wearing, card carrying, gun toting, flag waving right wing psychopath. ;)
