A new home – A new life

avatar
(Edited)

For the last few months I have been moving across state lines to a new home. I bought a property in Virginia, and am now moving into it. My good friend @lost.ryulincoln is going to join me on this new adventure in life and we are planning on starting a farm along with his girlfriend and my partner. I bought a property that has a lot of resources on it, clean well water, a spring fed pond and many creeks and other ponds all around the area. There are multiple Wildlife Management Areas all around me making this area quite dense with wildlife.. Just what I was looking for.

Why did I pick Virginia over anywhere else in the South?

Because of cannabis legalization and home grow.

Being from California it was quite disappointing how slowly Georgia was moving as many states all around the country legalized. So when I heard about Virginia legalizing I paid attention. And eventually life just happened to work out where I could move to a legal state. Very soon I will start growing some Cannabis plants and blog the process as I do it. It feels really good to not worry about prohibition anymore.

Source: https://www.growweedeasy.com/where-united-states-cannabis-legal-to-grow

As we can see in the map above, Virginia is completely by itself in the South for having the ability to grow cannabis and being a legal substance.

So what do we get to do in a legal state? Consume cannabis without being treated like a criminal. So we celebrated our arrival with some cannabis, broke out the bong and got enjoying our new founded freedoms.

As the day cooled down, we decided to take a walk to the mailbox. Took us around 30 minutes to get there, along the way we enjoyed a joint. Our walk is on private property so we can enjoy smoking as we walk down our country road.

With our cone lit up we got to enjoying the wildlife all around. Many birds, insects and sounds of animals were all over this property. One of the reasons I picked it as its a suitable hunting spot.

As we returned from the mailbox the sun was really starting to go down. But the sky was still lit up and we could see by the tree lines and a little bit of light.

We could see my house way off in the distance, with the porch light left on.

As we returned to the house we settled in for the night, and the next morning I woke up to a bank of fog rolling along my many acres.

It was like this for a few hours until the sun came out and cooked off the fog.

Later on that day we got some rain, and I enjoyed seeing all the drops on my pond.

A video clip of a short spell of rain and all the insects that emerged afterwards.

I packed a whole bunch of food for our trip, but we know about this Mexican food place not to far away so we got some chicken fajitas.

Any time the weather was good we went for walks, sometimes down the driveway and other times out into the woods. This day as we walked down the long driveway there was a rainbow. Actually two rainbows.

A recent rain brought them out and also cooled off this summer day making our walk more cooler.

As a Virginia resident I have access to the medical cannabis program. I bought myself some Rebel Sour 3 above, a sativa dominant strain with around 16% THC.

Sunset Sherbert 5 a indica dominant with some purple in it. 19% THC for this one.

Heres the sativa again without the flash.

Since clones are hard to come by around here, someone gave me some seeds to get started. Hoping most of them are females.

Picked up myself a new tray, Show me what you got!

The sunsets are quite lovely, we can see the moon coming out as the light passes down past the tree line.

Hah selfie time, that moon was pretty bright. Out here theres not much light pollution.

I rolled myself a cone with my medical cannabis and put some wax in there, time was slowed down.. And so was the burning of the joint, took forever to finish it.

Sometimes I just found myself staring out the window, a bunch of furniture was in the way but I moved it later. Part of moving into a new home, stuff is everywhere.

In the early morning the sunlight is cast across the rolling hills, where I live the Appalachian mountains are not too far away. So we have some amazing rolling hills here.

A selfie with my newly founded freedom hanging out.

Our fireplace mandle is well decorated, with two bottles of Dickel rye wiskey and a bunch of smoking and vaping gear.

One of the days walking back from the mailbox @lost.ryulincoln decided to just walk through one of my fields. It is Dove season so he wanted to try his luck. He just ended up getting torn up by chiggers.. Can you see him? Hes in the picture above.

As we walk back to the house, the clouds were coming out and another storm was one the way.

We came across a Copperhead and helped it across the road.

A short Youtube video

As we are discovering everything on this new property of mine, we came across a forest trail. Lots to explore, we set up some trail cams to see what passes by.. animal and human alike.

So what's next?

There is lots to do, we need to install Deer fencing at least 8 feet tall around the area we want to start some fruits, nuts and veggies in. Otherwise I will be quite disappointed when they just show up and eat the young plants. So we need to get any utility lines marked and get to digging, we plan on renting or buying a tractor with an auger bit. Drilling holes for posts and laying out fencing using the tractor. It will cover a large area so its quite the project, but with the amount of Deer we have seen the property already its going to be needed.

We also want to get Ducks, Chickens and start some Bees again. So some out buildings may need to be setup for the Chickens and Duck houses on the pond. Also considering putting up a dock so we can walk out on to the pond.

Though as Autumn and Winter closes in, I will need to see how bad they are in Virginia. From what I hear it snows more and it may be colder, so some of the farm work may just need to resume in the Spring of next year. But still planning it all out now so we can hit the ground running once the season warms up next year. I will blog about it a long the way, and starting all new plants.

I am glad I picked land out in a rural area, I feel much more at peace and this really feels like home. Though the environment is all new to me, but something I am quite attracted to and looking forward to making some great progress on my homestead with my close friends.

Congratulations on your property looks like a great place to do some Macro photography , how cold does it get there in the winter ? Could you ice skate on the pond too ?
looking forward to some more wildlife photography.

Thanks very much, yes I do indeed on getting some great new macro shots. Expect some posts soon enough.

From what I have read it gets down into the 10s-20s F and sometimes into the negatives for a short time. But this is still the South so its not as bad as Northern states.

So the previous owner told me that sometimes the pond does freeze over, and unfortunately Deer walk out on it and fall through. So its best to stay off of it when it freezes.

I was thinking you moved into a new property sometimes ago, or did you move to another place as well too? no matter, this place seems very serene enough. The content and the pictures that came with it took days to gather, that's great.
That's an aggressive copperhead there, I guess the stick and trying to prod it out of the road angered it. I'm hoping you get to enjoy the place, it's very beautiful and the rain looks nice on the soil.

Yes you are correct, I appreciate you following my updates. In my last video I found this home but was still getting it all inspected and checked out. That took many months. But now I got everything resolved on it I can move in.

Thanks much, it is quite the amazing place.

Hehe yeah it did not appreciate his help..

Congrats on your new home and land bro! The place looks pretty amazing and it sounds like you will get to live your life how you desire, with good company too. I do wonder what area of VA you are in now though. I live in the WV, so maybe nearby? Looks like an excellent spot to host a Hive meetup too 🤔

Much appreciated, yes so true. This property is East of the Blue Ridge mountains.

I looked at some homes closer to the area you told me about in New Castle and Lexington but the gas wells were just too close for my taste.

We can meet up maybe some time next year, I wanted to go explore the WV/VA border for Elk Hunting. Maybe we can meet up while I am out there with @lost.ryulincoln

I see, probably a few hours from here, but not terribly far. A great reason to come to WV is the whitewater rafting experience. Have you ever been? I just went again last week, not sure if you saw. I would totally be down to group up and go on another rafting adventure.

Hmu anytime man, I’ll find a way to make time for unique opportunities always.

Yeah I think the WV border is maybe 2ish hours from me.

I would love to explore this corner, seems really remote and has some of the larger game animals. Not sure how far you are from there but would be cool to meet up sometime on the border.

Just checked it out and dropped a comment on your post ;-)

I’ve been to Snowshoe, Green Bank, and Cass Railroad before, but that area next to there that you’ve circled, I’ll be honest… I haven’t ever explored. Only about 3-4 hours from me though. I also regrettably have zero hunting experience, but I know since they’ve brought elk here a lot of people are happy about that. I’ve still yet to even get to taste elk, but hear it’s amazing.

Oh cool, what about ski resorts ever go to those? I suck on skis but tubing and sledding can be a lot of fun.

Where would be a better place to meet for you on the VA/WV border?

Its all good, I do not have a lot of hunting experience as well. But my good friend does and he would not mind more joining us on a day of adventure out in the woods.

I've been to Snowshoe one time, but none of the other ski resorts. I have never skied or snowboarded. Tubing and sledding sound really fun though and I've never thought to try to do that there.

I can go just about anywhere man. Charlottesville, VA is probably the biggest city in that area to meet in. Then Snowshoe I'd say is definitely the nicest ski resort in the state and it's also pretty cool there in the summer too.

Yeah its going to be a lot to work with, but I plan on getting tractors and other heavy machinery. Gotta get a tractor to drill posts and then lay out fence.

Found this video and planning on following that as a guide.

As for all the grass, we will cut it back just before marking any utility lines and then put the fence in right away. Followed up with covering every inch of the area with mulch.. Just like I did on my small property, but now 10x more space will be covered in mulch.

I walked around the boarder on the tree line a few days ago and found some large fallen trees, so there will be lots to chip up and make mulch from.. And eventually I plan on making more trails through the woods, and should have even more mulch then... So yeah mulch is my solution to all that grass... lol

thanks man, I think so too and should be amazing.

This is a good idea, my brother likes how I build things, even conceptually before... Start a small unite, see if it's successful, if so, do it again in twice the size ! Practically works for everything :)

Yeah, I know this is the price of success ^^
Promise, after this one, I won't add to it ✌️

I hope you had a great weekend, be well and good luck for your projects !!

So beautiful there! That is great news about Virginia. It is liberating to consume cannabis especially since it is a medical her. That never should of been made illegal in the first place! I look forward to following along your grow journey, and if you ever have questions don’t hesitate to reach out. I might have questions as well, since you know your way around the garden:)

It sure is, glad I did not have to move that far away to enjoy legalization. Though they just legalized so no stores are open yet but we can grow and give away buds and such. So true it should have never been made illegal in the first place.

Ah yes, I plan on stopping by the discord and getting feedback as I grow. Hah yeah just ask, many of my cannabis growing skills helped me grow "non illegal" plants for many years. haha..

Yes, I am so glad to finally have more space. I completely ran out of space to garden at my old house and found myself pulling up plants to make room for more.. no good.

So now I have a huge fresh canvas of landscape to work with. It will indeed take many years but I think it will be well worth it.

I congratulate him on his new property in Virginia, congratulations also to his good friend @lost.ryulincoln, who together with him will start a farm. I congratulate you on your new property, if you have to have; clean well water, a spring-fed pond, and many streams and other ponds throughout the area will do just fine. When one feels the satisfaction of what one buys, it is formidable and if it is a space to live and work, it is better. From Venezuela I wish you much success, as well as your partners.

So true, having the best of both worlds is a dream come true.

Actually I have been thinking about that. I would need a license to broadcast, but I could set up a scanner radio station.

http://kiwisdr.com/

http://rx.linkfanel.net/

And where my property is now there are no others around so it would be cool to have a scanner station out in the woods.

Hoping with so little interference being out in the country maybe I can pick up some pretty cool things. Also thought about setting up a FTA satellite dish and I can pick up wild feeds.

Thanks man, I am glad everything is working out just right.

You should try it when you have a chance, maybe if you can visit a legal region around you. Not sure where maybe check out the world map here..

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legality_of_cannabis

Hmmm I have not made a cannabis tea, though some preparation would need to be made to the buds. You may need to cook them at a very low heat for a short time before making a tea out of it. Or maybe the hot water in the tea will activate it..

Wish you luck in trying cannabis tea, when you do mention me so I can see your story.

Yeah I looked at many properties over the course of a week and this one was the winner. It sure does, my friend @lost.ryulincoln walked some of it before I bought it and said the density of wildlife in there is amazing.

So in the big plan of things I will have two farms, one for slaughter and the other for eggs and other non-slaughter animals.

Rabbits unless you are collecting their poop for fertilizer then the meat is only good for eating.. And I do not have a petting zoo so yeah.. lol Unless I am wrong?

Thanks man, much appreicated.

Wow, you nailed it with your farm..looks very exciting to grow cannabis there.. the ducks might be a good thing for your pond but I think they will need a shelter to go to when temps are freezing.
Btw, did you join the Smoke platform before? We've had skylinebuds, offfgrid and acidyo (curation) there . Now its server is not running anymore.

Yeah I think this farm will provide just about everything we need to get started.

For the ducks we plan on constructing houses for them on the water so they will indeed have some shelter. We shall see how I will go about insulating it, the same for the chickens they need some buildings too.

I know about the fork, but never got into it.. Just like with Blurt and others I just focus on Hive and none of the others at the moment.

Oh sweet, OK will do. I got enough to last me a few seasons as I can only grow a few at a time up to the legal limit but if they turn out to be duds I will let you know sooner rather than later.

Much appreciated

Since I love to eat, the thing that caught my attention the most among these photos was the chicken fajita. 😋😋😋
Food and nature are excellent.
Enjoy your meal!

I lived in cali (Los Angeles) for over two decades and I am glad I left.

Between the earthquakes, wild fires (every year) and the terrible management of the state and city I am glad I left.

Once in Los Angeles I was without power for two weeks, because of too much pressure on the grid..

and yeah the prices are bad too

You've done something I've always wanted to do, pick up and start a new life elsewhere. The area I live in was one of the top 25 safest places in the country as recently as 1980, but is now in the top 50 most dangerous. We were flooded with people from NYC and Philly who brought crime and violence along with them, not to mention one of those refugee centers (which thanfully closed recently) so we were also flooded with desperate people willing to do anything.

They're driving all of the decent people out of town, but we're trying to hold on.

The decent people are fleeing, but I hate to leave the area I was raised in but the crime is just too much.. Things changed for us after my elderly grandmother was attacked in her home by a refugee who'd knocked on her door asking for food. He pushed his way in and went after her, beating her up and stealing her money. We handled him after a little visit to his home. You'd think this was Camden, NJ with the constant gunfire at night. My spot would be somewhere out west ("Go west young man!") With all the gunfire, I just want somewhere tranquil and quiet where I can blog in peace. I hear the woods and the mountains calling my name. Best wishes in your new property. :)

Ah yeah, I grew up in Los Angeles and was around during the Rodney King riots. Pretty crazy how bad it can get sometimes in cities.

I even feel the same way about where I am leaving in Georgia, its just reminding me too much of the big city I left for the South.

But now out in the country I really do not need to worry about such city things..

Hope you are able to get out unscaved, cities are becoming death traps.

Great Read. It was almost like being there with you all. Enjoy your new found freedom. It seems like they are coming to take all our freedoms eventually. So we must live every day fully.

I look forward to the future posts of adding on the out buildings, bees and all.

Oh, yes! I have been lagging and totally missed this! YOU are here, neighbor! So glad you made it and you moved to one of the prettiest parts of Virginia in my opinion! It's rural, but, that is heaven!

Good luck in all you bring to the State, I am sure you will like it and for the most part, it is was a pretty laid-back place. But, the world is changing. I loved the double rainbow and not so much the copperhead. Don't judge me, but, they scare the bejesus out of me. Ditto bats. And rats... Hmmm anyway, I really am an animal lover. :)

Always feel free to give me a shout-out if you need to know something to do with the game and fisheries and environmental.

You have a beautiful place out there!
