An Uncertain Future…

With expenses much, much higher than our original research lead us to believe, we were facing an uncertain future.

What were we going to do?

Our finances were dwindling fast!

The blessing of a kind stranger, allowing us to boondock on his property was a God-send! But, with everything costing so much more than we originally planned for, we found ourselves unsure of what to do…

Going back to the farm was not an option… even if we could have… we would have wound up freezing to death!

Heating fuel for our 6 bedroom farmhouse had been costing us anywhere from $800 to $1800 each time we needed to fill our tank! With the freezing temps we were having before we’d left, we would have gone through thousands of dollars in fuel in a few weeks time!

No, even though we were struggling to find our way in our newest adventure, we were right to leave the farm…

But what to do next?

What was meant to be only a few days on this kind strangers property, turned into a two and a half months stay!

So, we put the time to good use…

We were stuck in South Carolina, but we were not chained to our little homestead! However, wanting to watch our pennies, we looked for things to do that didn’t cost a lot of money…

My cousin took us to a number of tourist attractions and shops… but with monies tight, we only ‘window shopped’ our way around town!

To our surprise, we’d found a nice little place to visit that was right up our homesteading alley… it was only a few minutes away, and, it would only cost us the price of fuel to get there!

So, with camera in hand, we climbed into our truck…

Till next time,
