Several years ago I left a brick and mortar job for good, to start a new life of the unconventional kind. After leaving our jobs in the San Francisco Bay area, my husband and I took to the road in a travel trailer, crisscrossing the west, looking for a new life. With the priority on living in a smaller home with little overhead, no debt, and working for ourselves, we began to hatch our plan for the future.
After fishing countless rivers and streams from the beautiful McCloud in California to Henry's Fork in Idaho and the Bitteroot in Montana we decided to stop at a little town in Central Oregon near the scenic Crooked River and it is here we decided to call it home. We bought a 5-acre piece of land and with hammer and crowbar in hand, began to renovate the home and land.
I found HubPages on my trek through the Internet jungle and will be writing about topics including fishing, gardening, cooking, sustainable living, remodeling, freelancing and a whole host of other goodies that make life worth living. My other work includes selling art, collectibles, vintage jewelry and furniture on Ebay and Etsy along with blogging, micro-farming and an assortment of other odd jobs.
I love reading, sewing, cooking, fishing, gardening, traveling, adopting stray animals and trying just about anything that suits my fancy. This year I look forward to learning how to fish for Pikeminnow, crochet a sweater, cross country ski, build a fence and help my husband lay a slate floor. I've set my sites on buying a fishing boat and building a camper to continue our outdoor adventures.
Never before has my future looked so uncertain and yet so happy. Stop by often and see what I'm up to.
