2 Years in Paradise

2 years ago on this day I began building the panels for what would soon become my new home. Here is a look at the virgin landscape in the days just before The Field Lab was born. 43,82,26,0

As usual a great photo and it looked like you had a good place to build on back then. I can see why you might have picked that area.

Way to go John. You've come a long way in two years. Living your dream. I'm sure it hasn't been easy at times, but I'm sure it's been worth it. Every day is a day in paradise. Congrats on 2 years.

Nice going... I am sure 2 years is considerably more than some of your neighbors have made it...now you need to break down and buy a TV! Those PBS specials look much better in HD than on your laptop screen.

Congratulations John.

John - Congrats on the 2 year mark! The Hootch just celebrated its 3rd year. Unfortunate that I can only be a weekend resident instead of a full-timer like yourself.

Shame on you "rj". I wouldn't wish a TV on my worst enemies!

I've been following you online every day for more than a year, enjoying and envying almost every new entry you make. Congratulations!

What was the line from the old TV commercial?
"You've come a long way Baby".. Keep after it, you are fulfilling your dream, while most of us, just continue to dream.
