Since I moved from Phoenix to Virginia, I have been saying that I was going to start a blog so that all my friends could keep track of what I am doing.  I have talked a lot about it, but not much action has followed.  Now that Starr says, "I am embracing my country lifestyle." I figure I better get going or I will have too much to say at once.

I have always said that I am a "Jack of all trades, master of none."  This shows up in my diversified list of interests, from bee keeping to dirt bikes, raising chickens to photography, sustainable living to wakeboarding.  This blog will be a place that I can talk about all my interests, and immerse you in my thoughts. (Don't worry, they aren't that deep, so you shouldn't drown.)  This will also be a place to show you the projects I am working on and what I have learned from them.  It will hopefully be informative, and at least be entertaining.

This is the continuing saga of how I am becoming...The Haphazard Countryman.


  1. Found my way here via Crunchy Chicken. COngrats on your win!! Neat to see you moved from Phoenix. We are in Chandler and would love to be in your shoes with the land and animals. In the meantime I'll enjoy reading your story. Thanks for blogging!

  2. I found you also by Crunchy Chicken via Cold House. I've done much the same as you... but still am living in 2 places. This summer my goal is to learn to drive the tractor. (and master the bucket and loader)
