FREE RANGE UPDATE

Life on the Free Range According to the pictures found on egg cartons, Free Range chickens are happier.  So why not humans?  It turns out we are.  September twenty-ninth marks the one year anniversary of our vagabond lifestyle and we like it!

Nothing Epic Other than troubleshooting electrical, overhauling forty-seven year old Jeep switches, and eating, we haven’t done much-so we dug through the archives and found a few pictures we may or may not have posted before.
