Pictures From A Few More Properties We Considered
This one was a beautiful piece of property that was way out in the boondocks… past Bumpus Mills, TN. It was actually a wrong turn we took that led us down a 5-mile “dirt road” that became a “ditch road” for the last half of the ride!

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
