The White Faced Black Bear

Sitting here watching something on the computer when I hear something outside on the porch. I look out and its the white faced black bear that has been getting into our garbage and he’s making his way over to our water jugs. First thing I was thinking is should I grab a gun or a camera. I opted for the gun, no intensions of hurting or killing him, just as a security measure and to scare him away if he didn’t listen to me. Well, told him to leave and he is obedient, like most are but he only jogged about 20-30 feet and stopped at the driveway. So I fired a shot in the air, just a small .22 round, something to scare him and he was gone…..Life in the woods I guess 😉

Here is a clip of the bear caught on my trail cam early this month….(There is a smaller bear in this clip too, it is the bigger bear that showed up tonight.

We have some land cleared!

We are all set to start building! Of course, we need to be there permanently first, which is very close to happening!

We plan on building a 1000 sq ft home that is self sufficient, solar powered and wood heated. We had this plot of land cleared out on our land about 2 months ago by our neighbor who has a bulldozer.

We plan on sharing the progress, so stay tuned on this webpage, Facebook and YouTube.
