Free Range Vagabond Route 66

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! Vagabond chickens are right. The plan was to settle somewhere within a month of…
