Visitors are Welcome - always!

I always say that visitors are welcome, and I sincerely mean it.
Tim and Laurie, visitors that are always welcome.
In January of 2010 I had the pleasure of meeting Tim and Laurie who came up from Colorado to see my adventures in self directed living in Cheyenne.

We enjoyed touring the greenhouses to discuss construction techniques, features, and my practices with vegetable gardening. We also enjoyed coffee by the fire and spoke of fresh eggs from homestead chickens.

It seems that Tim and Laurie have some raised beds on a terraced portion of their land that faces south, and a south facing deck that looks like a good spot for a lean-to greenhouse.

They are also very interested in row covers and garden tunnels for their outdoor gardening spaces.

I was pleasantly surprised when they told me about canning 200 pounds of tomatoes after their very first year of vegetable gardening. That's impressive to say the least. They are also equine enthusiasts and enjoy camping on horseback for a week or so at a time.

They are fine and interesting people who have their sights set on being increasingly self reliant. Take a look at Golden Gaits Ranch for a glimpse at their life, and be sure to look at the equine photography section - it's rather nice indeed.

The point is that visitors are welcome here to see what I've done, learn about my plans and discuss what works and what doesn't. For any of us engaged in a more self directed lifestyle, it's a continual experimentation that pushes the envelope in many directions.

If you're planning to be in the neighborhood, just use the contact form to drop me a note if you're interested in my adventures, and I'd be glad to have you stop by for a visit. It's always nice to make new friends and learn from others who appreciate the value of frugal living and a self reliant lifestyle.

There certainly is a broad scope of topics here at Frugal Living Freedom. When you think about it, money permeates so very many activities in our lives, therefore, being frugal encompasses a wide range of interests, from being employed to taking a vacation, and just about everything in between. Enjoy the variety, pick up some new ideas, and start making frugality a part of your signature.

I'm a big proponent of being debt-free, and I mean entirely debt-free - no mortgage payment. It's not essential for financial freedom, but you'll love the feeling once you get there. If you didn't have a rent or mortgage payment, how much more could you do for yourself with your current level of income? I suspect plenty.

If you ever hope to see an abundance of wealth, you need to plug the hole in your boat. The wealthy don't necessarily make lots of money, instead, they know how to hang onto what they make, and make it work for them.
