Here’s a little secret: I’ve been known to be a bit impulsive on occasion.
The decision to quit my job and move to Hawaii. The time I invited Beth to leave Denver to come to live with me.
I like to call it “trusting my gut” or “taking a leap of faith” but others might see it as making rash decisions.

But there is a time and a place when I most certainly do NOT make decisions from a place of unknown.

Have you ever seen the Discovery Channel show Alaska The Last Frontier?

I was stoked to hear I’d been invited to join their summit, but with less than a 24-hour notice it was a scramble to get prepared!
Not to mention, riding the waves of excitement and high adrenaline.
It’s no secret: homesteading life and projects cost money.
There’s the materials, the tools, time and all the little parts and pieces for this ONE THING you can’t do without to complete the project. Even a small project can easily go over budget.
