Another quick assignment in my Wednesday writing group—you’ll find the prompt in the last nine words of this post. (Unh-uh! No skipping to the end!)
Living in a tent on ten acres of land in a strange place with no water, no electricity, no phone access, no knowledge of local weather conditions—like that severe thunderstorms could and would pop up daily with no warning, no jobs, and no money but with two elementary-aged children, two neurotic cats, and a notion we could live this way for as long as it took to design our own house, get planning approval, and build the entire thing with nothing more than our own four hands and a few hand tools . . . well, it seemed like a good idea at the time.
My husband and I have taken risks (“leaps of faith”?) before, but the one you and Ron took tops any of ours by far! And, yes, “gutsy” is a perfect descriptor!
Some risks are good things, right?
This is amazing. I’m loving reading about it! Y’all were gutsy.

Thank you, Lyn. Some people have used other descriptors! 😉
